Chocolate Filled Coconut Bites

I like to think of these as fake little macaroons, or Mounds bites. They’re my go-to snack when it’s 8 o’clock at night and I’m craving something sweet. They take about 5 minutes to prepare and 10-13 minutes to bake and only use 3 ingredients.

Chocolate Filled Coconut Bites

(The thing on the right is a “dirty diaper”. It’s a crescent roll filled with chocolate chips.)

Makes 16 bites.


Pillsbury Crescent rolls (or store brand)

Chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life vegan chocolate chips)

shredded coconut

 Chocolate filling


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Roll out the dough. Roll each triangle into a ball and then divide that dough into two smaller balls (unless you want larger ones). You should have 16 small dough balls.

Flatten each dough ball and put a group of chocolate chips in the middle. Fold up the sides and roll into a ball again.

Roll in coconut.

Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 10-13 minutes.


For a “dirty diaper” simply spread chocolate chips all along the inside of the crescent roll and roll up like you would normally.
