Coconut-Macadamia Bark
Ingredients
  • 6  ounces  vanilla-flavor candy coating, chopped (1 cup)
  • 6  ounces  white baking chocolate, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1  tablespoon  shortening
  • 1 1/2  cups  macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  finely shredded lime peel
  • 3/4  cup  flaked coconut, toasted*
  •  Finely shredded lime peel (optional)
Directions

1. Line a large baking sheet with heavy foil; grease foil. Set aside.

2. In a large microwave-safe bowl combine candy coating, white chocolate, and shortening. Microwave, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in nuts and lime peel. Pour chocolate mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread mixture evenly in a layer about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with the coconut and, if desired, additional lime peel; lightly press into chocolate mixture.

3. Chill candy about 30 minutes or until firm. Use foil to lift candy. Cut or break into pieces.

From the Test Kitchen*Note:
  • To toast coconut, spread it in an even layer in a shallow pan. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 5 to 10 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice. Watch closely as coconut can burn quickly.
To Store:
  • Layer candy between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
