chocolate + coconut haystack mountains -- gluten free + dairy free

damn you, scones. i've attempted making scones now three times since this past saturday - still no luck. i'm feeling very defeated by rice flour blends right now. and so i decided to make something sans flour. i had some coconut in the fridge - quickly toasted it up in the oven and then tossed it in melted semi-sweet chocolate. i've named these sweet morsels to pay homage to haystack mountain, co.


choconut casserole by liz benotti

 
chocolate + coconut haystack mountains
  • 1.5 c unsweetened shredded coconut - toasted
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 c semisweet chocolate chips - melted
heat oven to 350 - spread unsweetened coconut in an even layer on a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet. toast in the oven until uniformly browned - tossing with a fork every so often - keep an eye on this - it burns easily. once coconut is toasted ~10 minutes remove from oven and cool completely - then transfer to a large mixing bowl. meanwhile, using a double boiler melt chocolate chips and vanilla until smooth. once chips are completely melted and smooth pour over cooled coconut and stir until combined. drop by heaping tablespoon onto a baking sheet lined with new parchment - refrigerate 20 minutes - or until set. keep in fridge until ready to serve.

hope you like them - my hips sure do!

  2. I just came across a bag of unsweetened organic coconut in my freezer. Now I know what I must do with them. The other night I made tapioca pudding. You should mess around with it. I made a chocolate version and through in a leftover nip of chambord that was sitting around from x-mas. Delicious! I actually made it without egg and it was fine. Probably should have added a bit more tapioca for thickening, but its gluten free and delicious.
