2 Ingredient Chocolate Coconut Candy Clusters (V, GF, Paleo): a 5 minute prep recipe for deliciously indulgent chocolate clusters with chewy coconut flakes. Vegan, Paleo, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free.
Raise your hand if you just LOVE chocolate and coconut together. And for the rest of ya, you’re dismissed! J/k! Even if you don’t love chocolate and coconut together, you’ve got to try these chocolate coconut candy clusters. They’re that good. 😍
Way before I listened to everything my momma said (I know, what was I thinking “before”?!?), I wasn’t the biggest fan of coconut. Sure, I wouldn’t turn it down if there were coconut cookies in front of me (especially if they were peanut butter coconut cookies)… or let’s say a slice of coconut cake (I know). Or or, these paleo coconut macaroons.
But a huge coconut fan I was not. So, mommy, it took just 3 decades to convince me. And ya did, are you happy? 😉
Meanwhile, another such person affected by my mom’s powers of persuasion: Erik. When my mom and Erik first met, they got along just fine. But they weren’t soul sisters like I wanted them to be. (Yes, everyone considered IN in my family must be a soul sister or an actual sister haha).
Overtime, they grew close, and Erik finally came to the dark side. Make that the coconut side (by way of almond joy cups). Okay, that was too cheesy, even for me. But I had to say it. Forgive me?
Now that it’s Erik’s birthday (!!!), we’ve got to celebrate in style with all the homemade candies we can find/make!
Since Erik is always my trusty Beaming Baker Candy Shoppe assistant, we’re gonna dedicate (oh dude, autocorrect seriously tried to just type ‘decimate’—how… destructive??) these Chocolate Coconut Candy Clusters to him. 🙂
Here are a few more Homemade Candy Recipes I might be whipping up for his birthday:
- Paleo Almond Joy
- 5 Ingredient No Bake Chocolate Coconut Bars
- Chocolate Coconut Cups
- Homemade Crunch Bars
- 3 Ingredient Chocolate Almond Bark
And of course, I’ll also be whipping up some of his new favorite recipe: vegan chocolate chip cookies. Seriously, I’ve had to hide them from him to make sure he doesn’t eat them all in one sitting.
Happy Birthday, Erik. To my one and only
candy shoppe helper soul mate. I love you more than I love chocolate. So you know I mean it. 😉 Thank you for always being so kind, generous, patient and goofy with me. Here’s to more than forever. <3
Now let’s talk homemade candy! These clusters are easy to make, composed of just 2 ingredients, and come together in a jiffy. One of my favorite things about these chocolate coconut candy clusters? The gluten free coconut flakes I used give the chocolate clusters this delicious crunch.
Erik suggested I use this exact type of coconut flake to replace rice crispy cereal in some kind of paleo crunch recipe. Thoughts?
While you mull that over, allow me to tell you all about these paleo treats! They’re:
- made with just 2 ingredients
- so easy to whip up
- paleo, vegan, gluten free, dairy-free
- totally the perfect plant-based, allergy-friendly Easter candy you’ve been looking for

Are you ready to get your homemade candy on? Let’s do this! I’ll grab the coconut, you grab the vegan chocolate. It’s so much fun making, baking, no-baking, and just creating all the tasty plant-based treats with you. I can’t wait to hear what you think!
