Low Carb Coconut Patties

No-Bake Chocolate-Dipped Macaroons

These coconut cookies taste like fine candy; decorated with white chocolate, they deserve a place on your coffee table.

Makes 25 cookies

  • 1 3/4 oz. (50 g) butter, room temperature
  • sweetener equivalent to 1 tablespoon of honey
  • a pinch real vanilla powder
  • 1/3 cup + 1 1/2 tablespoons (100 ml) heavy cream
  • 7 oz. (200 g) shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 3 1/2 oz. (100 g) dark chocolate with 70 percent cacao
  • 4 squares sugar-free white chocolate

With a handheld electric mixer, beat butter, sweetener, and vanilla powder until light and airy.

Add the cream while continuing to mix. Add in the shredded coconut, and set the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to firm up.

Roll into tablespoon-sized balls, place them on a platter, and flatten them a little. Chill the balls for 10 minutes before dipping them in chocolate.

In separate bowls, melt the dark and white chocolate over boiling water. Dip the cookies in the dark chocolate, and then set them on a wire rack.

You’ll have an easier time dipping the cookies by using two forks: Spear the cookie on one fork, and dunk it quickly in the chocolate. Tap the fork lightly against the edge of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate drips, and push the cookie on to the wire rack with the second fork.

Make a small piping bag out of wax paper, or use a plastic bag with a small hole cut into one corner. Fill the bag with white chocolate and pipe a spiral starting along the outer edge of each cookie. With a toothpick, draw lines towards the middle of the cookie to make a flower motif.

Place the cookies in the refrigerator to chill. Store them for up to a week in a tin in the refrigerator, or freeze and defrost them as needed (in the refrigerator). Bring the cookies to room temperature for a bit before serving them to let their flavor develop fully.

Melt the chocolate carefully in a warm water bath, make sure no water steam gets into the chocolate, this can make the chocolate grainy.

Stir the egg yolks into the chocolate, mix well making the batter smooth. Beat the cream but don’t make it too hard.

Stir a spoon of the whipped cream into the chocolate, mix well. Fold the chocolate into the cream, add a few grains of sea salt and vanilla powder to make it tastier.

Pour into glasses, cups or coupes. Place in the fridge for at least 4-5 hours. Serve with whipped cream and maybe a halved strawberry or a couple of raspberries.
