Coconut chocolate bites.
Just like Mounds bars. Only better.
But instead of giving you one (Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.),
I'll tell you how to make them (Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.).
Though you might not want to eat them for a lifetime.
Thinking about this candy reminded me of the related Almond Joy, and their old ad that included a kid saying "Oh, boy, Almond Joy". My brother used to hear that and go around declaiming "Oh, boy, I'm in Joy!"
The recipe is from Gourmet Magazine, February 2006.
Coconut Chocolate Bites (makes 32 one-inch candies.
3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
3/4 cup unsweetened dried coconut
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
3 1/2 to 4 oz. fine quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
Special equipment: a small offset metal spatula; 32 paper candy cups (optional).
-Line the bottom and two opposite sides of an 8-inch square metal baking pan with a sheet of wax paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on both sides.
-Mix together coconuts and condensed milk with your fingertips until well combined, then press firmly into the pan in an even layer, using the offset spatula. Chill, uncovered, 5 minutes.
-Melt chocolate in a metal bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water or in the top of a double boiler, stirring until smooth. Spread evenly over the coconut layer with the offset spatula, and chill until firm, 5-7 minutes.
Lift confection onto a cutting board using the overhanging wasx paper, and halve the confection with a sharp knife. Sandwich the halves together, coconut sides in, chocolate sides out, forming an 8 X 4 inch rectangle. Remove wax paper and discard. Cut into 32 one-inch squares. Arrange in paper cups, or on a platter. Keep chilled, covered, until ready to serve.
