I got this recipe from my sister, I would not recommend it if you are trying to be “good”. We served it last night at our Summer Mini Launch and it was a HIT.
Combine 1 1/2 cups of dessicated coconut, 2 egg whites (that have been beaten), 1/3 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of flour.
Reserve 1/2 cup of the mixture and then press the rest into the base of a springform tin. Bake in a 150 degree oven for 15 mins (or until golden). Press remaining mixture into small star cutters to make 5 – 7 small stars, you should be able to press the mixutre into the cutter and then lift the cutter off. Bake in a 150 degree oven for 10 mins or until golden.
Sprinkle 80 grams of roasted unsalted macadamia nuts over the base.
Heat 300 ml cream with 300 grams of very good quality cooking chocolate, specificallyPLAISTOWE 70 % Cocoa Cooking Chocolate. I would suggest doing this in a double saucepan (thereby the bottom saucepan holding boiling water and the steam providing a more gentle heat). Once the cream and chocolate is smooth add 4 egg yolks and stir until combined.
Pour over the base and macadamia nuts, set in the fridge.
Just before serving add your coconut stars, you can also dust with icing sugar if desired.
