Toasted Coconut Two Ways

Here are two easy ways to toast coconut to add to recipes. It really is so easy to do.  I made some cute Easter Bird Nests this week and needed to add Toasted coconut to the center of them. So I thought I would share these recipes with you!

Most toasted coconut recipes want you to spread the sweetened coconut around a large baking pan and toast in the oven until golden brown. I like to toss mine in a frying pan, I can turn the coconut to brown it and not have to open the oven over and over to toss. Both ways are pretty easy to do, so let me share how they are done.

  1. Mmmm, toasted coconut! I wouldn’t have thought to toast in on the stovetop, but that totally makes sense!
