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.
