Chocolate Coconut bars

On days like this when the rain come down washing away all the colours from the world I can’t help but feel the urge to make something yummy.

I have been waiting for a good time to make some vegan coconut chocolate bars and thought that the weather was a good indication that it was time.

If you love coconut and chocolate, or have ever bought a Bounty chocolate bar then you will be familiar with this recipe. Its a nice treat that takes very little time and ingredients to make. I was able to make these start to end in an 1 1/2 hours.

I tend to gravitate towards homemade peanut butter cups but sometimes its nice to make something different or both.

I recommend doubling the recipe as they are sure to go quickly.

  • 2 Cups desiccated coconut
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, divided
  • 1 Tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp agave syrup
  • ½ Cup coconut cream, separated from the liquids you only want the solid part
  • 2 Cups dark chocolate
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients except for 1 tbsp coconut oil and dark chocolate.
  2. With your hands shape 1 tbsp worth of mixture into an rounded rectangular shape.
  3. Chill in refrigerator on a parchment lined baking tray for 1 hour, or until firm.
  4. Melt chocolate in microwave or with a bain-marie until just melted, add in the remaining tbsp of coconut oil and stir to combine. Make sure chocolate is not too hot, should be warm to the touch.
  5. Coat each bar in chocolate and let dry on a cooling rack. To collect dripping chocolate I placed the parchment lined baking tray underneath.
  6. Put back in refrigerator to firm.
  7. Bars will keep in refrigerator for one week or in freezer for one month.

Enjoy!
