Remove the flesh from 1 brown coconut, leaving the thin skin on. Shave the coconut flesh into thin strips using a vegetable peeler. Toss 2 cups of the shaved coconut with 1 to 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar. Spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet and toast in a 300 degrees F oven, stirring occasionally, until golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
Sprinkle these coconut chips over frozen yogurt or toss with sauteed string beans-they're delicious!
