While still room temp, make balls with your hand squeezing pretty hard, and roll in the toasted coconut. Place on a tray and place in the refrigerator for one hour. Once solidified, may be stored in an airtight container or plastic bag.

Method 2: Bars

Line an 8"x 8" baking pan with parchment or wax paper such that the paper hangs over the edges. Place batter in prepared pa, sprinkly with coconut, and pressing down firmly with the palm of hands and distributing as evenly as possible. Allow pan to sit in the freezer for approximately one hour. Remove pan from the freezer. Lift singular slab from pan by lifting up on paper. Set the slab down and gently peel the paper away. Slice the slab diagonally into 8 long bars and then cut each long bar in half to create a total of 16 bars. Keep in a sealed container/bag in the freezer.
