  3. In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 4 oz white chocolate uncovered on High 45 to 60 seconds, stirring once, until softened and chocolate can be stirred smooth. Place coconut in resealable food-storage plastic bag or between sheets of waxed paper; crush slightly with rolling pin. In shallow dish, place coconut.
