Dark Chocolate Haystacks

Whenever we go traveling we often stop at a candy store. I like to browse through all the wonderful treats. We always think we will try something new, but we never do. Brent gets a turtle, and I get a dark chocolate haystack. I love haystacks.

I had a half a bag of coconut left in my pantry so I thought I'd use it up and make myself some. I toasted the coconut, let it cool, and mixed it with a bag of semisweet chocolate chips that I melted in the microwave. I had a hard time not eating all the toasted coconut before I mixed it with the chocolate!

They'll make a nice addition to my Christmas tray...if I don't eat them all!


1/2 bag coconut, toasted and cooled
1 bag chocolate chips, melted
Mix and drop onto waxed paper. Let set until firm.

Amazing how some recipes require so few ingredients and steps, yet yield delicious results.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
