This recipe is simple and easy to make and tastes deliciously smooth. The coconut bites are ideal to give as treats to the little ones or to wrap up and take out on days out. I like to keep them stored in the fridge, they are a great for a nibble or with a nice cup of coffee.
They are not entirely a healthy treat but contain no added sugar. A nice crispy chocolate coating with a moist creamy filling
- Tin of coconut milk 400ml
- 250g desiccated Coconut
- 3 tbsp Coconut Oil
- 2 tbsp Brown Rice Syrup or 3tbsp of sweetener
- 200g Dark Chocolate (The darker the better)
Add the coconut milk to a pan and heat up over a medium heat. Add in the coconut oil and sweetener. Once heated up add in the desiccated coconut and combine well. Keep mixing until it thickens and clumps together.
Take away from the heat and place the mixture into a square tray. Press down to compress the mixture.
Place in the freezer for 1 hour until the mixture sets and becomes hard.
Melt the chocolate in a pan with a tbsp of coconut oil.
Take the coconut mixture out of the freezer and cut up into squares, about an inch by an inch.
Place the coconut chunks into the chocolate, once all coated take them out and place onto a piece of parchment paper.
Put the coconut bites into the fridge to set.
Now enjoy! Your own little taste of paradise
