December SRC - Chocolate Coconut Patties
By the time our reveal for the Secret Recipe Club posts this month, Christmas will have come and gone. I hope that everyone had a joyous holiday!
I was assigned the blog Oh! You Cook to choose a recipe from this month. Dena's blog is full of wonderful recipes! My choice this month was simple - not much more than chocolate and coconut - but it was just what I was looking for to add to our Christmas treats. If you like Mounds bars, her recipes for Mounds Wannabees is spot on and so delicious! I changed the recipe up just a bit by mixing the chocolate and the coconut together, making patties instead of bars. Either way, the chocolate and coconut is an excellent combination!
Happy New Year, Everyone!
Chocolate Coconut Patties
1 - 14 oz bag shredded sweetened coconut
8 1/2 tbsp. light corn syrup
1 - 15 oz bag melting chocolate
Line a large baking sheet with wax paper.
Add coconut and corn syrup to a food processor. Pulse 8-10 times, or until corn syrup is evenly distributed and mixture clumps up.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Stir the coconut into the coconut and mix until thoroughly combined.
Shape into patties and lay on the baking sheet to harden. For quicker results, stick the pan into the frig. for 10 minutes.
Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
Makes approx. 45 patties
