These Golden Rough’s only need 3 ingredients and don’t take long to make at all. Enjoy this delish recipe from The Colourful Housewife.


  • 1 block of Cadbury cooking chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons of coconut oil
  • 1/2 Cup of coconut (add more if you like a lot of coconut)

What to do:

  • Put the chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave bowl and place in the microwave on high for 1 minute
  • When it’s melted, stir through until it’s a runny consistency
  • Add the coconut and stir through
  • Next, pour the mixture into molds or, if you want them thin like golden roughs, use cookie cutters and pour enough in just to cover the bottom of mold
  • Place in the fridge for 4 hours
  • Once firm, push down hard on the cookie cutters to cut off any leakage, and pop out the chocolates, then do the same with the molds
  • Next, consume them before the kids get home! Ha!

  • Anyone having a kids party soon? Well these will be a hit for sure! There aren't any really clear instructions for these, but they look pretty simple to create. We originally found these on funcraftskids, but click HERE to head to the stylish board, which shows you what you need and how to put it all tu-tu-gether. Haha. We had a go at these at home with items we had in the pantry so we used: - Coconut mixed with a few drops of food colouring - Marshmallows - Meat skewers (cut to size at the end) - Pink cup cake holders - A small amount of water (used as an adhesive for the dyed coconut) For more yummy, inventive, creative and unique ideas head to or find them on Facebook.
