Pop it into an ice-cream machine and churn until it reaches a firm stage, about 40 minutes. Scoop into a baking tray lined with baking paper (20cm x 30cm with 4cm-high sides), spreading evenly, and place in the freezer. Once set, remove from freezer and cut into 10 x 4cm rectangles. Cover baking tray with baking paper and working quickly, dip one end of each ice-cream bar into melted chocolate before placing onto tray. Sprinkle with coconut and put back into freezer until ready to serve.
