How this recipe came to be:
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 the products (sometimes going back for seconds), but I rarely ever purchase what I've sampled.
However, the last time I was there I tried some amazing coconut chips, 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. This recipe is what I came with!
Switching things up a little:
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 only food. It's supposed to be FUN!
When to serve these 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.
Or, what about serving these for a girl's night in, along with a nice glass or two of wine or Prosecco?
Think about making them for mom this Mother's Day. They're so easy to make, even the kids can do it.
Or, do as my mom did and served them to her bridge club the night she was hosting.
Whatever the occasion, these white chocolate candy treats will fit in nicely!
Tropical White chocolate candy bites are easy enough for the kids to make:
Just make sure to pre-chop all the ingredients if the kiddos aren't old enough to use a chef's knife because some of these ingredients are tricky to chop.
Or make easy work of it and use a nut chopper.
