When I think of a favorite candy bar that I would get when we went to the grocery store it would either be a peppermint patty, or a mounds bar! I have always loved coconut and started loving dark chocolate more as I got older.
How excited was I to put together this recipe that is sooo good you will want to try it again and again!
Even if you are not Keto, you can put as almond on it and cover with milk chocolate. Maybe use white chocolate to cover it instead, lots of possibilities!
It takes some time but it’s so worth it to have a treat when you are craving it!
Let’s make some treats!
First you will need 2 cups finely shredded coconut in a medium bowl.
Next is the coconut manna, or butter! I love the Nutiva brand❤It is well blended, smooth and tastes sweet even though it is NOT!
Put 1/3 cup in the bowl with the coconut.
Next is coconut oil. You can technically use any type of coconut oil, but Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut oil is top notch!! You can get some of Nutiva’s best items at 25% off when you order here!
You will need 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil. With these hot summertime days, its probably already melted!
Now open your can of FULL FAT coconut milk and scoop out the solidified cream.
This is also good used in my 2 ingredient Dairy Free Whipped Cream!
Use 1/3 cup of the coconut cream. Use the rest as whipped cream or in a smoothie with the liquid you drained off earlier! Honestly, I chill it and drink it. I am a true coconut fanatic🥛!
Now mix it up well with a wooden spoon. It should be mixed well like this.
Now to save time I used a cookie scoop so I could portion them out.
Then shaped them into the familiar log shape. I lined my pan with parchment for easy removal. Put them in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Measure out 8 oz. of chocolate bar, or unsweetened chocolate plus stevia. I know Lily’s chocolate could save you time! Get some here!
Start melting chocolate in a double boiler.
Dip each log separately using a fork.
Place on cooling rack that is on a cookie sheet. Freeze 10 min.
Drizzle remaining chocolate over the top of desired.
