Bountiful Coconut Chocolate Bar

Are you a coconut lover or is someone you know? If so, these sugar-free chocolatey bars are for you. The crisp snap of dark chocolate with the fresh, fruity, nutty taste of coconut makes a treat to satisfy any coconut or chocolate craving. Due to the carb count (35 grams per serving), these are not a good choice for keto-dieters, but for everyone else (including diabetics), these are a lovely indulgence.

Equipment

  • saucepan
  • Spatula
  • Mixing spoon
  • Mixing bowl
  • Tupperware container or baking sheet (approx. 5.5 x 4 inches)
  • Parchment or Wax Paper

Ingredients

Chocolate Layers

Filling

  • cups desiccated/shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tbsp Swerve sweetener
  • tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp water

Instructions

  • Lay out all of the ingredients.
  • Place the coconut oil in a small saucepan, and heat gently until melted.
  • Add the desiccated coconut, sweetener and water. Mix for a couple of minutes, then remove and set aside to cool.
  • Place your chocolate layer ingredients together in a glass bowl, and microwave until melted – a minute or so on full should do the job.
  • Otherwise the bain marie method will do.
  • Pour a few spoons of the chocolate in the base of the Tupperware or pan. Place in the freezer to solidify – 20 minutes or so should do the trick.
  • Remove from freezer, and spoon the coconut filling on top of the chocolate base, and place in the freezer for a further 15 minutes.
  • Remove from freezer, and pour the remaining chocolate on top of the coconut filling – and once again, place in the freezer for 20 minutes to set.
  • When bar is solid, but not frozen, remove from freezer, and turn upside down. Remove the greaseproof paper.
  • Cut into your desired shapes. Keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Enjoy!
