Chocolate Coconut Burfi

Chocolate Coconut Burfi

Chocolate is the spoiled brat in the dessert world. There is already loads of sugar and butter in a single chocolate bar. But this delicious diva demands more butter and sugar if you try to make anything with it. There are some occasions where I wouldn’t hesitate to indulge in chocolate tantrums. But today is not one of those, with New Year resolutions and all. Instead I have given a microwave timeout to chocolate. It simply melted and when applied to the coconut burfis, it seemed content. I guess it found a natural fat to cling to. There is no way we can win with chocolate. This is a spoiled brat everybody loves to indulge in.

Dark Chocolate and Coconut Fudge
Chocolate Bar and Coconut Burfis


12 medium sized Coconut burfis
1 chocolate bar of your choice. I went with TJ’s brand

Break the chocolate bar into big chunks. Take them in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave, stirring in-between. Usually it takes one to two minutes for the chocolate to become shiny liquid.

Line a plate with parchment paper or wax paper.

To chocolate coat: Dip the coconut burfi into the melted chocolate with your fingers or with a fork. Completely submerge and cover. Lift, and run a knife underside and to the sides, to remove excess chocolate. Place the burfi on a wax or parchment covered plate. Quickly coat all the pieces in same way. Place the tray in a cool place, or refrigerate. Once the coating firms-up, gently remove them from plate and store them by placing a wax paper in-between.

Coconut burfi coated with chocolate tastes superb and for choco-cocoholics, this is a simple and easy way to indulge in chocolate-coconut cravings.

  9. Yummy!! It is such a coincidence that I was snacking on my mom’s coconut burfi(just got back from India yesterday) while reading your blog. I will melt some chocolate and dip some of the burfis.

  14. First-time post from longtime lurker! Thanks for this — easy Indian Bounty bar! Looks delightful too. [possibly healthier than the real thing too, given the commercial thing is likely stuffed with emulsifiers and fillers]

    Comment by Rodosee — January 4, 2008 @ 7:06 am

  15. Yay – homemade Bounty bars, only better I bet! Need I say, gorgeous, GORGEOUS pictures.

  16. Hi Indira,

    How did you get the coconut barfi to look so white. Mine never comes out in that shade. Also I noticed that when you made coconut barfi on this blog previously, it was more of a brownish shade. Did you do anything differently?

    When I was young, mom used to put pink and green food coloring. It was so much fun!

  17. Hi Indira,

    I love chocolate and coconut together. Its great idea. Will give a try.

    Though i miss the old look, i think the new look is very elegant.

    Good luck with 2008.

  18. Very unique Indira! I’ve had coco burfi never this way! 🙂

    Comment by Laavanya — January 5, 2008 @ 1:02 pm

  28. Thank you for your sweet notes and welcome to the choco-coco fan club.:)

    Happy New Year Archana, MT and ISG.

    Padmaja (16): Tender coconut and removing the brown underside of mature coconut before grating helps to make the sweet in white.

  33. cool recipe!! will try it …happy new yr..

    Comment by swaroopa — January 8, 2008 @ 6:12 am

  34. I tried this recipe over the weekend. Taste was good. I removed all traces of brown underskin as you suggested. But how did you dip the barfis? i tried ice tongs, regular tongs, and chopsticks. Finally thin bamboo skewers worked well, but not as neat as the ones in your photo. Any tips on this? Thanks in advance.

    Comment by padmaja — January 8, 2008 @ 7:26 am

  35. a home made “BOUNTY” HAHA chocolate is the best thing in the whole world. these burfis are next to it

  39. Indira,

    No words to praise these chocolate coated recipes. I find this idea very unique yet extremely good one. I will sure try them out.


    Comment by sv — February 27, 2009 @ 11:10 am

  40. Indira,

    Your chocolate-dipped coconut barfi really inspired me!!! This sweet is heavenly just as it is, but tonight, I tried a few variations. Packed into small silicon candy molds, with a dab of bitter marmalade in the center and topped with toasted walnuts and chopped orange rind; sour cherry jam with a little almond flavoring and cinnamon-toasted crushed almonds on top, and next time maybe something with rosewater and almonds, or pistachios and mint jelly. Maybe it’s a little strange, but delicious! Sweets to the sweet! Many thanks for a beautiful website!
