    Form rocks: take small amounts of dough and put on a baking sheet, form into pyramid shapes with a narrow base (they will spread during cooking).

    You can also make little balls, or use a forcing bag.

Remarks:

You can add a half teaspoon of rum to the egg if you like it.

For almond rocks, use ground almonds instead of coconut (but it's not quite as good, and less golden after cooking).
