Chocolate Coconut Fudge Bunny

Chocolate Coconut Fudge Bunny

I just made this fudge for easter tomorrow. I was out the entire day and did not get any time to prepare for tomorrow. So I just whipped a batch of this fudge with a handful of ingredients. I like chocolate with coconut (Almond Joy is one of my favorites) and since I had sweetened coconut flakes on hand, I decided to make the fudge with coconut. It is almost 11:00 PM and I just put it in the refrigerator. I guess I will cut into pieces tomorrow morning only. I plan to use my egg, bunny and butterfly shaped cookie cutters to suit the holiday.

You need:

2 cups white chocolate baking chips (I used Nestle Tollhouse White Morsels)
1 cup chocolate baking chips ( Nestle Tollhouse Morsels)
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk – I used Eagle brand
1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 cups sweetened coconut flakes
sprinkles/colored sugar to decorate

1. Line a 9*13 or 8″ square baking dish with aluminum foil, and grease the foil.

2. Combine the chocolate chips, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently until almost melted, remove from heat and continue to stir until smooth.

3. Stir in 1.5 cups of coconut flakes.

4. Spread evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread a layer of coconut flakes on top and press gently.

5. Spread sprinkles and press gently. If you plan to decorate individual pieces differently then you can wait for this step until you have cut the pieces. Chill for 2-3 hours, then cut into pieces of desired shape.

I will post the pictures of cut fudge pieces tomorrow.

Happy Easter!
