I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

Chocolate Covered Coconut Mounds

Chocolate Covered Coconut Mounds



12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips


1/2 cup palm sugar syrup (can substitute agave or honey)

1 cup finely grated coconut

1 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract


In a medium sized bowl mix all filling ingredients and allow to sit.

Temper the chocolate chips 1/4 cup at a time.

Take a 1/2 teaspoon of the coconut filling and roll it into a ball.

Lower the coconut ball into the tempered chocolate and with a small spatula cover the coconut entirely with chocolate. Set the chocolate covered coconut onto a piece of wax paper and let set. Repeat with the rest of the coconut mounds, continuing to temper more chocolate as needed.

Makes about 20 chocolates.


If you want to add some crunch take one toasted almond and place it on top of the chocolate covered coconut and spoon chocolate over the almond. Let set.

I was given a small bottle of Rain’s Choice in a gift basket and I have been hooked ever since. The flavor makes all of my baking so much better! I will never use grocery store vanilla again!
