Dark Chocolate Coconut Haystacks {Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free}

Meredith 12:45 pm

I love coconut macaroons. However, these days, I find them a little too sweet and too time consuming to make. But I still love chocolate and coconut! So I wanted a quick alternative that combined coconut and dark chocolate, was super easy to make, and not overly sweet. These dark chocolate and coconut haystacks couldn’t be simpler. They contain only two ingredients and you don’t have to temper the chocolate.

Recipe makes approximately 20 chocolate haystacks.
