  • plastic wrap
  • cake pan
  • Medium pot
  • bowls
  • spoon


  • Unsweetened coconut flakes, 1/4th cup
  • Sweetened coconut flakes, 1/3rd cup
  • Gel-paste food coloring, 2 or 3 drops
  • White chocolate bars, 12 ounces
  • Milk chocolate, 1 Ounce
  • Sweetened condensed milk, 1 can or 14 ounces
  • Unsalted butter, 3 tablespoons
  • Vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon
  • Coarse salt, ½ teaspoon
  • Parchment paper
  • Plastic wrap
  • Aluminum foils


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place parchment paper on the cake pan and spread coconut flakes over it.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden brown, stirring halfway through baking time. Remove from oven and set aside to cool completely.
  • In a medium pot over low heat, melt white chocolate bars and milk chocolate. Once melted, add butter and whisk until smooth.
  • Add sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and salt to the pot and stir until everything is well combined.
  • Wrap the cake pan with wrap and the aluminum foil. Pour the chocolate mixture over the cooled coconut flakes in the cake pan and spread evenly.
  • Separate the remaining white chocolate into two bowls. 1 or 2 drops of gel-paste food coloring in each bowl and mix until completely blended.
  • Pour one colored white chocolate over each side of the cake pan. With a spoon, swirl the colors together in a marble pattern. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow the chocolate to set. Cut into individual pieces and serve.



  • Make sure to use high-quality ingredients for the best results.
  • Be sure to melt the chocolate and other ingredients slowly over low heat.
  • When adding food coloring, add only a drop or two at a time until the desired color is achieved.
  • If you are using aluminum foil instead of plastic wrap to store the candy, make sure it is completely cooled before wrapping.
  • This candy can last for up to two weeks stored in an airtight container in a cool place.
  • Be creative with the ingredients used and add your own personal touch to this recipe.
