Coconut and rich white chocolate are a match made in heaven in this recipe for bitesized treats.


  • 300g good white chocolate, broken up
  • 300g fresh coconut shavings (from health food shops)
  • 12 mixed glacé cherries, halved, to decorate


  1. Line 2 large baking sheets with baking paper. Put the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of just-simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Leave to melt for 3-4 minutes, then remove from the heat and stir very gently until just smooth – white chocolate doesn’t like to be over-mixed so treat it gently.
  2. Add the coconut shavings to the chocolate and stir until just cooled. Use a teaspoon to place heaped mounds onto the lined baking sheets, spaced apart. You should have enough to make 24. Pop a cherry half on top of each, then set aside to cool and set.
