Very clever and very yummy. This was my first attempt at candy making and I'm pretty impressed. My caramel stayed very soft, so plan on treating these guys gentley. Also I had to wait quite awhile for the caramel to cool enough to work with. I think mine took about an hour (though I may have slightly undercooked mine). Also, you can just break up the toasted coconut with you hands (no food processor or knife required) and stir it in. I made the caramel and put it over the nuts one evening, put them in the fridge and did the coating the next day. I made 36 (with 6 nut pcs each) and had some extra nuts and chocolate left over. I think 10 oz of bittersweet(with a tablespoon of shortening) would have been plenty. I did sprinkle the candies with just a little sea salt and encourage others to try it. The salt pairs wonderfully with the sweet caramel. I'm not talking about table salt or kosher salt. These are little flakes of sea salt (which has a slightly mineral taste and is less salty than other kinds). Again, I am a candy novice and they came out great. I'll definitely make them again and would certainly recommend the recipe to others.
