The Best of Willow Bird Baking: Chocolate and Coconut Recipes

by Julie Ruble on April 5, 2013 · 10 comments

I’ve been on a coconut kick again lately, in case you didn’t see that huge hunk o’ cake down there. Today I got a hankering to compile all the Willow Bird Baking coconut recipes and then realized I wanted to do the same for chocolate recipes. And for recipes with both coconut and chocolate. So why not compile all the goodness together in one big roundup post? If you love coconut or chocolate or both together, this post is dedicated to you! And this is the perfect time to unveil a new little Willow Bird feature: you can now hover over any photo to pin that photo to Pinterest. Happy baking — and pinning!

I’ve been on a coconut kick for the past two years or so and I’m always looking for more ways to get coconut into my mouth. This is a great compilation!

Can I just have 1 of everything? Especially the coffee cookie dough fudge cheesecake… it’s really catching my eye today.

Oh my goodness. Our taste buds are totally on the same wavelength this week. I made 3 coconut recipes over the weekend & am still craving more! That usually means summer is near… I don’t know what it is about sunshine & summer that makes me want to eat my weight in coconut yumminess, though it can’t be good for bikini season. ;)

I came across this recipe for a coconut crust with salted caramel and chocolate ganache and thought it’s gotta be right up your alley :) YUM!

These all look so delicious, I don’t know where to start!

That is an amazing collection of recipes you got there! I remember pinning that Gooey Chocolate Skillet Cake a while ago and getting the most repins I ever got. For anything. Ever.

Great compilation! Three cheers for chocolate and coconut!
