Crispy Chocolate Coconut Nests

Recipe by NitaCook
READY IN: 10mins


  • 1
    (16 ounce) bag dark chocolate chips or (16 ounce) bag good quality sweetened chocolate
  • 1
    (16 ounce) bag shredded coconut


  • I've estimated the bag size but you want to have approximately equal amounts of each ingredient.
  • Spread the shredded coconut in a baking pan and toast in the oven at 400° until a shade darker than golden brown (maybe 5 minutes or so I think- I never time it, just go by the color really.) Melt chocolate chips in microwave, stirring occasionally until melted.
  • (Don't over cook these or the chocolate will burn and become permanently solid) Stir coconut and chocolate together until all coconut is covered.
  • Drop by small spoonfuls onto wax paper and refrigerate until solid.
  • --I don't like semisweet chocolate in this recipe.
  • Milk or dark chocolate tastes better in my opinion, but use whatever you like.
