Coconut Cluster Easter Gift Jars

With so many milk chocolate bunnies floating around during Easter, it is nice to shake things up with a splash of white chocolate.  


Making white chocolate coconut clusters is a great finger food at an Easter brunch or a simple way to embrace the food in jars craze by offering your guests a take home gift in an Easter themed jar.

 

 

What I love most about this recipe is that it is so simple and quick that you can enlist your children to help you in the kitchen; making them the perfect, “just before a party” treat when time is limited. Or if time allows, you can make a big batch a few days before, saving you time on the day of your Easter celebration.

To create the jar, I spray painted a small canning jar and a tiny bunny figurine with a matt blue paint, once dry I glued the bunny to the top of the jar and then filled them with the white chocolate coconut clusters.

 

Supplies
  • 11 ounces of white chocolate chips (1 standard bag)
  • 14 ounces of sweetened coconut flakes (1 standard bag)
  • Repurposed mason jars. Spray paint and glue mini rabbit figurine to lid of jar, if desired.
Directions

Step 1: Place the coconut flakes into a large glass-mixing bowl.

Step 2: Follow the microwave directions for melting the chocolate on the packet, or cook them in a double boil by placing the chocolate chips in a medium glass bowl over a pan of simmering water, taking care that the water and the bowl do not touch. Stir the chocolate until it is melted and smooth.

Step 3: Pour the melted chocolate over the coconut flakes and fold them together until the coconut is covered.

Step 4: While the mixture is still warm, spoon it on to a sheet of parchment paper to create tablespoon size mounds across the sheet.

Step 5:Allow the mounds to cool at room temperature, and then transfer to the refrigerator to set for an hour. Once set, place a few mounds into your Easter jars, and then seal to lock in the freshness.
