Welcome to How To Cook That I'm Ann Reardon and today we're making a chocolate coconut dessert that looks like a coconut 🥥 First thing we need to do is make some dragon's beard candy and it can follow the recipe on the howtocookthatnet website for how to make that, there's a video for that one too

Place the water in the saucepan with the sugar and the vinegar and of course the glucose syrup, if you don't have glucose syrup you can swap that for corn syrup Let that boil unstirred until it reaches a hundred and thirty-three degrees centigrade and then remove it from the heat and pour that into your silicon muffin tin you don't want to pour it into a metal one or you won't be able to get it out and then we're just gonna leave those for several hours to cool

While that's cooling take a balloon and dip it into some tempered dark chocolate, it needs to be tempered otherwise it's not going to stay set at room temperature Lift it up and give it a bit of a shake to get off the excess chocolate and then just place it onto some baking paper to set Repeat that for the number of coconuts that you want to make these ones are quite large so they need to be shared as a dessert between two or three people You can make smaller ones using water balloons if you want individual desserts Now that this candy is cooled it's set really hard so you need to microwave it to soften it and then pull it to make the dragon's beard candy If you've never made this before then I'll link you to my video at the end that explains all the tricks you need to know to make this successfully I'm not going to make it super fine today I want it quite coarse so that the strands look like the husks on coconuts

🥥 Now dip the dark chocolate covered balloon into milk chocolate and turn it upside down onto a bowl Arrange the dragons beard down over the top now if you look at a coconut the strands all run in one direction a bit messily but they're going from one end around to the other end of the coconut

So try and keep all the strands going the one way Once you've got a good covering of the Dragon's beard add some more milk chocolate over the top and spread it out so that you can still see the strands of the candy underneath This pulled sugar with the crisp chocolate is going to give that nice crunchy element to our dessert Once that's set you can just make a small cut and let the balloon down slowly just squeezing it to pull it away from the edges and away from the chocolate and then you can just take that out of the bowl Now you can just use sharp scissors to cut around the edge at the level where your dark chocolate was so you have a nice neat coconut that looks like it's a coconut shell being cut in half

If you prefer you could leave it untrimmed if you want to have more of a rough edge to your dessert 🌴Now for your mousse we're going to need coconut cream sugar gelatin and water and we'll also need at some normal whipping cream as well in a minute Put the gelatin sheets into the water to soak and as always all the recipe quantities are on the howtocookthatnet website and there's a link to that below for you Then put the sugar in with the coconut cream and then I'm going to add a little bit of vanilla you could use some rum or some banana liqueur or whatever you like here I just want to keep it good for kids so I'm just using vanilla

Now you want to heat that until the sugar is melted and then squeeze the water out of your gelatin sheets and add them into the pan and keep stirring until they're dissolved Then you just want to leave that to cool to room temperature don't refrigerate it we don't want to chill it we just want to take the heat out of it Once it's cooled whip your cream until you get stiff peaks and then fold through that cooled coconut mixture Now you need to immediately spoon that into your coconut shells this mousse is not very sweet because you're going to get plenty of sweetness from the chocolate if you're making the mousse just on its own you might want to up the sugar a little bit Fill each half with mousse and then place them in the fridge to set Once it is set cut a little way in with the circle cutter just to mark where the center of your coconut is and then using that as your guide spoon out some of that mixture from the middle to make it look like a coconut Warm the back of your spoon and rub it along the inside just to smooth where you've scooped it out

Now the question is what to put in the middle you could put coconut water in it but I think I'm going to put some nice fresh fruit because I think that'll go well the creamy rich coconut mousse and that crisp crunch from the chocolate and dragons beard candy I took one of these outside to try and get a photo in the natural light and the birds were very curious one magpie was extremely brave and came right up to where I'm sitting with the camera
