  • Soak corn husks in hot water 30 min.; drain.
  • Spread 2 Tbsp. tamale dough into 3x2-inch rectangle down center of each husk, leaving about 2-inch uncovered space at top of husk.
  • Spoon 1 Tbsp. chocolate and 1 tsp. coconut down center of each husk; fold over sides, then both ends of husk to enclose filling.
  • Steam in a tamalera 1 hour or until done, adding water when needed. (Tamales are cooked when they pull away from husks.) Cool slightly.

Spend time with your family making these tamales, but keep portion size in mind when enjoying.

Cooking Know-How

If you don't have a tamalera, stand tamales in a steamer basket in large saucepan or small stock pot filled 1/4-full with water. (Make sure tamales are not touching the water.) Bring water to a boil, then cover. Steam for 1 hour or until tamales pull away from the corn husks, adding more water to the saucepan as needed.
