COCONUT CHOCOLATE CANDY

December 7, 2014

7th December!

If you are not much of a baker – this is the recipe to go with. No need to even heat the oven. A pot, a spoon, a fridge – and you are good! These intense chocolate-coconut candies take probably less than 20 minutes to do from scratch. I like to roast the coconut shreds a little beforehand – gives it a great flavor and smell. To do so – just put coconut shreds into a pan and heat to medium-high heat [no oil]. Stir constantly until some of the coconut starts to brown and you get an intense roasting smell!
