    Place sticks on a sheet of wax paper on top of a cookie sheet and broil them in a 400ºF oven until coconut starts to brown.

Tips

  • Before dipping the chocolate covered pretzel in coconut, toast the coconut in the oven (or use packaged toasted coconut). This will keep the chocolate from melting off the pretzel when you try to toast the coconut!
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • This is a good snack for kids after school, or just to munch on any time.
