These chocolate-coconut patties are just like the ones I used to eat as a kid. I remember getting them whenever we went to visit my grandparents in Florida. They keep longer in the freezer.

  • Roll mixture into small, 1-inch balls and flatten into patties. Place on a cookie sheet covered with waxed paper and let dry, 2 hours to overnight, flipping at least once so both sides dry out.

  • Place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes.

  • Dip 1 side of each patty into melted chocolate and let set, about 15 minutes. Dip other side and let harden, about 15 minutes more. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate.

Cook's Note:

To speed the cooling/hardening process, place tray into a freezer.
