Toasted Coconut Clusters

Written by yelda

This easy combination of coconut and chocolate looks decadent but can be made in just minutes. You can also use milk chocolate.

3 cups shredded coconut
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate
1 cup bitter-sweet chocolate
¾ cup dried fruits – raisins, diced apricots, cherries, mangoes (optional)
½ cup nuts, toasted, and diced (optional)

  • To toast coconut, preheat the oven to 300°F. Spread coconut on an ungreased baking sheet. After 2 to 3 mintes, toss the coconut with a spatula. Toast another minute or two until coconut is a light golden brown. Coconut toasts very quickly, so remove the baking sheet from the oven as soon as you see the flakes begin to color.
  • Line a baking sheet with a parchment paper.
  • Melt the chocolate.
  • Place the toasted coconut in a small bowl. Add nuts and dried fruits (optional).
  • Drizzle melted chocolate over the coconut, tossing with a spoon. Stop adding chocolate as soon as there is enough to coat the coconut.
  • Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Refrigerate until set.
