Flakey Coconut


Amazon has a "pantry" section where people can buy grocery store items in bulk. Roundey Supply stocks coconut flakes in this pantry. I got a bag of two pounds of wonderful, sweetened coconut flakes. Why? two pounds? The holidays are around the corner and I'll need "snow" for my gingerbread houses, my macaroons and my coconut chocolate bars!  Roundey's coconut is fresh, sweet, soft, flakey. You will be tempted to heat it by the handful!

The seller says:
 Product Description

Flake coconut is the preferred cut for the grocery and foodservice markets. With a taste profile ranging from sweet to savory, flake is the most popular cut of sweetened coconut. This product is gluten free and kosher.

"Mounds Bars"
Mix in a large bowl:
3 cups finely chopped pecans
1 pound sweetened coconut
1 box (1 pound) powdered sugar (4x or 10x, doesn't matter)
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (has to be Eagle Brand!)
Mix well. Form into logs to cut or roll into ball to dip.
Melt 12 oz chocolate chips in a double broiler. Dip pieces and cool on wax paper.

You can use different types of chocolate and add paraffin. 

I received my 2 pounds of coconut flakes at a reduced price in exchange for this honest review. You can get your coconut from from
