How to Make Coconut Chocolate Candy Clusters

Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. You can even use a plate (but I prefer a sheet so the clusters aren’t lopsided.)

Melt the chocolate your favorite way: with a double-boiler or in the microwave.

Now, add in your [favorite coconut chips] or shreds. Fold the melted chocolate and coconut together until everything is well mixed.

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop and drop dollops of coconut chocolate mixture onto the sheet (or plate) you prepared earlier.

Place the sheet into the freezer and chill the coconut clusters until firm. Enjoy the best coconut chocolate candy clusters!
