Coconut Chilli White Chocolate Barks are another quick fix giveaway for family and friends this Diwali. Yet another 3 ingredient, hardly any process to follow idea, but so bang on on flavors that your guests or family and friends that you gift these to, will be mighty impressed.
The first time i did this was in a chocolate truffle, i guess 2 years back as part of my corporate diwali hampers, and it was an instant hit. The crunch of coconut, the chilli hit, its a delight for first timers, and the ones who have tasted the combination before are might pleased to have it again.
It gets ready in like 15 minutes flat, and iam not kidding, from chopping the chocolate, to mixing to setting, and you have these beauties ready to be served or packed. Serve them as a nibble in your Diwali party, or pack them in cute little pouches, or stuff them in mason jars, jazz it up with a ribbon and a very impressive gift is ready.
Its funny that this doesn’t really have a recipe to it, its so simple, but nonetheless, please do try.

Notes / More Ideas
- The options / variations to these are innumerable, but my favorite is a dark chocolate and rose bark, i have even tried adding some gulkand into it, and its a divine tasting pan chocolate bark.
- Use a good quality chocolate like lindt if for home purpose, or Morde White Chocolate compound works pretty well here if you want to make it in bulk.
