  1. Using a food processor, process all ingredients, except the extra coconut, until well chopped and evenly combined. Transfer to a sheet of baking paper and press out until 3cm thick. Freeze for about 30 minutes or until firm.
  2. Lay another sheet of baking paper on top and use a rolling pin to roll out to a 7mm thickness. Cut out heart shapes with a small heart-shaped cutter (about 4cm at widest part across). Reroll scraps of mixture and keep cutting until all the mixture has been used. Sprinkle on extra coconut and press on lightly.
  3. Place in an airtight container in single layers between sheets of baking paper and seal tightly. Keep in the freezer for up to 3 months, taking out single serves as required.
