  • 50 grams butter, melted (about 5 tbsp)
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar, heaping
  • 2 & 1/2 cups desiccated coconut, unsweetened
  • 1 lemon, grated zest
  • 200 grams dark chocolate


  • Combine eggs and sugar in a medium-sized bowl.  Mix.
  • Add melted butter, lemon zest and desiccated coconut.  Mix until properly combined.
  • Set aside for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Scoop about 1 & 1/2 tbsp of the coconut mixture and form into a small mountain.  Place on top of a baking tray, lined with a baking paper. This recipe normally takes two baking trays.
  • Place the tray in the middle of the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the tops turned darker in color.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Melt the dark chocolate, in the microwave or using a double-broiler.
  • Dip each coconut bite in the melted chocolate and set aside until the chocolate has hardened.
  • Serve.



  • Wet your hands if it's too difficult to form each piece of coconut bite.
  • You can place the bites in the refrigerator to cool them down quicker, as long as it's not straight out of the oven.
  • Handle the bites carefully when you dip them into the chocolate. If they are have not cooled enough, they might break.
