Coconut adds a great flavor to candies, whether on its own or when paired with nuts, fruit, or chocolate. These coconut candy recipes have something for everyone, from truffle lovers to fudge fanatics.

1. Lime Coconut Truffles

In this recipe for lime-coconut truffles, a white chocolate truffle base is infused with fresh lime zest and juice, then rolled in sweet coconut for a refreshing tropical candy. Lime and coconut is a fabulous and uncommon flavor combination that shines in these truffles.

2. Coconut Cream Patties

These soft, chewy chocolate-covered patties are bursting with sweet coconut flavor. They are similar in concept to peppermint patties, with the peppermint being replaced by coconut extract and shredded coconut.

3. Macadamia Coconut Bonbons

Moist coconut filling is studded with macadamia nuts and dipped in dark chocolate to create these decadent, coconut-macadamia nut bonbons. The marshmallows and corn syrup in the recipe help to keep the bonbon filling moist and chewy, while the nuts and coconut add robust tropical flavor.

4. Chocolate Coconut Haystacks

Who knew two simple ingredients could be so good together? Toasted chocolate and coconut are a match made in heaven in this quick and easy drop candy. You can experiment by substituting raisins or slivered almonds for a portion of the coconut.

5. Almond Delights

Chewy coconut is topped with whole toasted almonds and covered in chocolate, just like your favorite candy bar. If you don’t like almonds, they can be omitted and the candy will still be delicious.

6. Coconut Brittle

Coconut Brittle is a rich, toasty brittle recipe with loads of flavor from shredded coconut. If you thought brittles had to include peanuts or other nuts, you must try this coconut variation. It’s wonderful dipped in chocolate, eaten plain, or crushed and used on top of coconut cream pie or other desserts.

7. Coconut Meringue Bark

Coconut Meringue Bark is light and crisp, with a bit of a chew from the shredded toasted coconut. I love the mix of airy crunchy meringue and sweet tropical coconut, and the bark format makes this recipe much faster than the traditional individually formed meringues.

8. Coconut Truffles

Coconut Truffles blend the mellow sweetness of white chocolate with the tropical flavor of shredded coconut for a delicate, rich truffle that’s perfect dipped in milk or white chocolate.

9. Pina Colada Fudge

Pina Colada Fudge is a smooth white chocolate-based fudge with the tropical taste of coconut and pineapple. If pina colada is one of your favorite flavor combinations, be sure to also check out this Pina Colada Clusters recipe!

10. Mango-Coconut Balls

Sweet-tart mango is combined with coconut and a hint of spice in this refreshingly light candy. I added the cayenne powder to mimic the chile-mango flavor combination that is common in Mexican candies. However, you can omit or adjust the seasoning to suit your taste.
