Coconut Haystacks


Yield: Several


  • 2-3 bars of any flavor meltable chocolate
  • Cup of sweetened coconut
  • Milk or oil (optional)


  • Microwavable bowl
  • Parchment paper
  • Storage plate

Let’s Make It!

  1. Place the meltable chocolate in a bowl and microwave for a few seconds, stir, and repeat until it starts to melt. Add milk, vegetable oil, or water to achieve a thick but mixable consistency. Don’t add too much liquid or else the chocolate won’t harden! Note: Using water or a nut/low fat milk may result in a softer haystack due to lower fat contents.
  2. Spoon several tablespoons of coconut into the mixture until you reach a desired balance.
  3. Spoon out portions onto parchment lined storage container/plate.
  4. Refrigerate for an hour or until they harden.
  5. Before serving let sit out for 15-30 minutes to soften.

Notes & Alternatives

  • Feel free to use any type of meltable chocolate and other candies to the mix!
  • The coconut can be either used as is or you can toast it on a pan or in the oven. I noticed that either way, both have around an equal crunch to them.
