You go to Florida, what’s the one thing you have to bring home? Coconut Patties! And here’s the recipe.

1 1/4 Cup Confectioner’s Sugar
1/2 Cup (1 stick) Unsalted Butter
1 egg white
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/4 Cup Coconut, packed
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

Make the coconut filling: In a medium heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, whisk together the confectioner’s sugar, butter, egg white and salt until very liquid and warm to the touch, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and, with a spoon, stir in the coconut and vanilla until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Form the coconut mixure into 16 (or fewer, for larger patties) parts. Flatten a bit, and put in the freezer on wax paper for 30-45 min.
Melt the chocolate in a mixing bowl over a pan of hot water, remove from heat, and dip the coconut balls into the chocolate. Put into fridge until it hardens. Have some pretzles available to dip into any extra chocolate. Tastes like Florida.
