I saw these at Tjs and bought it without having any idea what I was going to do with it.
These are crunchy flakes of coconut that aren’t over sweetened. Plus, as far as coconut goes, the stats are pretty good. A serving is half the package and sets you back only 160 calories. Not bad for coconut!
I mixed these chips with melted chocolate chips and dried cherries. Dropped onto a silpat covered cookie sheet, these clusters harden into tasty little candies. I made them large because I was impatient, but make them small and they would be delish little bites. These took all of 10 minutes to put together for a book club meeting but would be super cute to wrap up for holiday treats.
So good, they taste like another…
Ps – please ignore my chocolatey fingers. I was quickly running out of light and needed to snap these photos before they set completely! Moving right along, nothing to see here…
Chocolate Cherry Coconut Drops
1 bag gluten free chocolate chips
1 bag coconut chips (2 ounces)
1 bag dried cherries, or other fruit
Melt chocolate chips in a large bowl, add coconut chips and dried fruit. Stir to combine. Drop onto a silpat or parchment covered cookie sheet. Pretend it was much more difficult than this when you share with friends. Let set. Will keep stored for several days.
