These easy to make Tropical White Chocolate Candy Bites are the perfect thing to make and gift to someone who loves to indulge in a sweet little treat from time to time.
With only four ingredients and about 10 minutes of time you can make these Tropical White Chocolate Candy Bites that will please just about anyone who sinks their teeth into these sweet, but not overly sugary, little treats. Think about making them for mom this Mother’s Day. They’re so easy to make, even the kids can do it. Just make sure to pre-chop all the ingredients if the kiddos aren’t old enough to use the knife.
One of my favorite things about going to a warehouse superstore is tasting all the free samples. Most of the time I’ll only taste products (sometimes going back for seconds), but I rarely ever purchase what I’ve sampled.
However, the last time I was at Costco I tried some amazing coconut chips (from a company called Dang Foods), and their taste blew me out of the water. I knew at that moment that I needed to purchase a bag, bring them home, and make something delicious with them. The result are these Easy To Make Tropical White Chocolate Candy Bites.
I have a confession to make. Sometimes (most times, actually), when I have a recipe idea swirling around in my head, I tend to keep a good majority of the ingredients for those recipe ideas on my kitchen counter tops (and island) as my visual reminder of what I need (want) to create. And, a lot of the time (to the untrained eye, or course) it looks quite the mess.
Don’t get me wrong; I love a clean and organized kitchen as much as the next person does. It’s just that sometimes the (food) clutter I’m surrounded by is a delicious reminder of the good things that are soon to follow, and a lovely visual that I’ll soon be sharing my joy with the people I love!
I’m not sure why I had a burning desire to tell you that, but there you have it. A quick glimpse into my food blogger’s cluttered brain, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! LOL
I made these Tropical White Chocolate Candy Bites for my mom’s birthday this year. When the time came to give her the boxes (yes, more than one because I gave her all 24 of the candies) I couldn’t have been happier because I knew I had packed these Tropical White Chocolate Candy Bites full of all the flavors she loves!
For any of you out there who don’t enjoy white chocolate, macadamia nuts, dried pineapple, or coconut chips, please refer to this “recipe” as a “method” of candy making and not a hard a fast rule you have to stick to. Please feel free to substitute dark chocolate for white chocolate, cashews for macadamia nuts, raisins for dried pineapple, and even (call me crazy here) puffed rice cereal for the coconut chips. I’m not here to police what you make in your own home kitchen, but to inspire you to create with the flavors and products you love! After all, it’s just food. It’s supposed to be FUN!

Time to think outside of the gift box (see what I did there? LOL) when it comes to reasons for making these Easy To Make Tropical White Chocolate Candy Bites…What about making these to serve at a bridal shower or wedding? You could do a tray of white chocolate and dark chocolate ones. You know, kind of like a bride and groom representation.

I’ve decided to coordinate this recipe for Tropical White Chocolate Candy Bites with these Hawaiian themed wedding glassware items I painted for a customer’s destination wedding a few years ago. The design I painted was from a copy of the wedding invitation the couple had sent to me. And, as you can see each glass is personalized with the bride and groom’s names on the base. Talk about a wonderful keepsake!
If there is ever anything I can paint for you (from glassware items to fabrics), please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your design, and for a price quote. Or, please VISIT MY SHOP. Custom orders (like the items shown above) are always welcome. I will happily paint and design from any idea, photo, description, (or wedding invitation) you send my way.
