Coco-Nutty Clusters

These tasty coconut candies are a great holiday treat.


  • Mini muffin paper cups
  • 2 2/3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • Ad
  • 2 cups chopped pecans
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate
  • Mini muffin tin

For the Glaze:

  • 1/3 cup white chocolate melted with 2 teaspoons vegetable shortening.


Brown coconut and pecans in the oven at 350 degrees F on separate cookie sheets for approximately 9 minutes, a little longer for the coconut. Stir every few minutes to prevent burning. Let cool.

Combine pecans and coconut in a bowl.

Melt the cup of chocolate on a double boiler or in a microwave safe bowl following the directions on the package of the chocolate chips.

Mix the melted chocolate and pecan and coconut mixture together. Drop the mixture into the paper cups.

Let set in the fridge for 45 minutes.

Melt white chocolate with vegetable shortening. Once melted pour into a plastic baggy and cut a little piece off one of the corners.


Drizzle chocolate over the clusters. Chill in fridge for about 15 minutes.

I made these for a Christmas Gathering and they were a big hit!
