We absolutely love this recipe for chocolate and coconut party bites. Covered in sprinkles, these little treats will last next to no time at a kids’ birthday party so make sure you bake plenty. Get the children involved in the process – they’ll love dipping the sprinkles on at the end and moulding the ‘mountains’.

Ingredients

  • [if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE
  • 225g desiccated coconut
  • 140g ground almonds
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 3-4 egg whites
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 300g milk chocolate
  • 1 pot of sugar sprinkles (poured into a bowl)

Method

  • Pre heat oven to 150°C/300°F/Gas Mark 2

  • Whisk egg whites until stiff but not dry. Sift in the icing sugar and fold in gently. Add the ground almonds and coconut one half at a time and stir to combine – the mixture will not be quite stiff.

  • Grease one or two oven trays and line with baking paper. Using your fingers, mould the mixture into little mountains and place on to the baking paper, leaving a little space in between each one. 

  • Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

  • While the party bites are cooling on a rack, melt 300g of milk chocolate in a glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Do not let the base of the bowl touch the water – it must be set just above the water line.

  • Once the chocolate is melted, dip each mountain base in the chocolate first and then lightly dip into the sprinkles.

  • Turn each one upside down and allow the chocolate to set for about 1 hour in a cool place before serving,
