  • 3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 15 ounces dark chocolate (or semi-sweet chocolate, if preferred)


  1. Combine Coconut and Milk:
  • In a medium mixing bowl, thoroughly mix the shredded coconut with the sweetened condensed milk.
  1. Shape the Coconut Logs:
  • With clean, wet hands (to prevent sticking), shape the coconut mixture into 12 logs. Place each log on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Freeze the shaped logs for about 20 minutes to firm them up.
  1. Melt the Chocolate:
  • Place about 10 ounces of the dark chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, then continue in 15-second intervals, stirring well between each interval, until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Add the remaining 5 ounces of chocolate to the melted chocolate and stir until completely smooth. This technique tempers the chocolate, ensuring a smooth and glossy finish.
  1. Dip the Bars:
  • Using forks, dip each chilled coconut bar into the melted chocolate to coat thoroughly. Gently tap to remove excess chocolate.
  • Transfer the coated bars back to the parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
  1. Set the Chocolate:
  • Allow the chocolate to set. Because the bars were chilled, the chocolate should harden quickly.
