Easy Coconut Chocolate Squares

Easy and delicious Coconut Chocolate Squares


I am sure by now you all know how much I love chocolate. Anything with chocolate, and I am willing to give it a try. I am always on the lookout for new recipes, and when they are created with healthy ingredients, all the better.

I love that there is no added sugar in this recipe for Chocolate Coconut Bars. I feel good about letting my kids have a treat like this!
Give them a try - let me know what you think!



Ingredients

· 1 3/4 cup shredded coconut, large flakes

· 1/2 cup coconut oil (measured solid)

· 1/4 cup pure honey

· 1 teaspoon vanilla

· 2 tablespoons coconut oil (measured solid)

· 1/2 bar of chocolate of choice (about 12 small squares)


Directions

In the microwave or on the stove, melt the half cup of coconut oil. In a medium bowl, combine the shredded coconut, melted oil, honey and vanilla.

Mix well until all the coconut is covered and looks "sticky"

Line an 8x4 pan with parchment paper and using a spatula, press the coconut mixture into the pan. Press down firmly. The more you press the better the bars will hold together.

Place in the freezer to set.

While the bars are setting (give them at least 20-30min) make the chocolate topping. In a small pot melt the remaining coconut oil and chocolate bar over very low heat. High heat will cause the chocolate to burn.

Whisk frequently until everything is melted and combined.

Pour the chocolate mixture over the coconut bars making sure the chocolate is evenly distributed.

Place the in the freezer for 30 more minutes until chocolate is hard.

When ready to enjoy, remove from freezer cut into bars. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and serve.

Makes 8 squares.
