Salted Chocolate Coconut Bites


I love that these don't involve any baking but they look phenomenal on a cookie platter. They are ridiculously easy to make, too.

Ingredients

  • 4 C organic shredded coconut (I used a finely shredded kind that's really between shreds and flour)
  • 1 can sweetened, condensed milk
  • 12 oz dark chocolate, chopped
  • salt (I used a vanilla salt that I had gotten from Susan, The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen)


Procedure
In a large bowl, stir together coconut and condensed milk; it will form a thick, sticky paste. Roll mixture into 1" balls - you should get about 3 dozen balls from this quantity. Place coconut balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Put the tray in the freezer form, at least, 30 minutes.




While balls are chilling, temper your chocolate over a double boiler. Using two toothpicks or forks, dip the coconut balls into the chocolate, covering evenly. Move the balls back to the tray and finish coating them completely. Sprinkle with salt.


Let chocolate set, on the counter or in the fridge. Devour immediately...or store in an air-tight container.
