One of my favorite memories with regards to food from when I was a kid was this dessert snack that my mom would pack in my lunches when I was in kindergarten. I’m not sure if she packed it subsequent years, but I clearly remember eating it in the cafeteria of the school I went to for kindergarten. It’s really, really, stupidly, simple. And, yet, so insanely tasty.
- 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
- 1 cup Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips (Mom used Nestle semi-sweet chips, but G’s milk chocolate are *so* much better)
Mix thoroughly. That’s it. Seriously. It comes out looking like this:
It may be a little easier to eat with a spoon, but either way, if you like chocolate and coconut, you’ll fall in love. And it really does taste like my favorite candy bar, Bounty bars, in deconstructed format.
