Tropical Traditions Coconut Chips with a Giveaway

Photobucket Next week is Easter and I have the perfect treat for you and your Easter menu planning. I'm sure you've tried shredded coconut before and hopefully you've had the chance to try the Coconut Crusted Chicken recipe Rachel blogged about here in March. Today I'm excited to tell you about coconut chips, another fabulous product sold by Tropical Traditions. For lack of a better word, I think coconut chips are my new favorite cooking accessory.  Accessory? Well, I like to think of my recipe as an outfit that I just have to find a way to accessorize it with coconut. These coconut chips are so fun and so yummy! My latest endeavor includes coconut chip nests atop cupcakes pictured to the right. My kids LOVED fashioning these nests and molding the chocolate eggs.  Some of the other fun recipes we've tried are toasted coconut s'mores, coconut cream pie embellished with toasted coconut, trail mix as our after-school snack which evolved into the BEST granola ever.

Tropical Traditions doesn't just sell coconut. Instead they have a wide variety of organic foods, skin care, household cleaners, books and other products. One of their most popular products, coconut oil, is actually the reason Tropical Traditions was founded. I love the story of husband and wife Brian & Marianita Shilhavy visiting her childhood home in the Philippines and realizing the potential of the local coconut farms. As their website states: "Today when you buy Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, you are buying the highest quality coconut oil we have to offer, and it is still made by hand and benefiting families in the rural areas of the Philippines where the coconuts grow."

BUY: You can purchase Tropical Traditions coconut chips and other products from their website here.
