Of all the chocolates in those yummy assorted boxes, the coconut filled ones have always been my favorite. JD's a big fan of them too. With a giant jar of coconut oil in the pantry, I have been busy looking up recipes, looking for an excuse to use it. These chocolate coconut bars were a no brainer. They are insanely easy and quick to make and taste just as good, if not better than store-bought versions.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup shredded coconut, sweetened
1 tbsp honey
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate
Warm coconut oil until liquified. You can just stick it in the microwave.
In a medium bowl, mix coconut oil, shredded coconut, and honey until combined.
Line a pan or container with parchment or wax paper and pour the coconut mixture into it.
Place in the freezer until solid.
Melt chocolate and spread over coconut.
Refrigerate until chocolate cools and solidifies. *do not freeze chocolate!
Carefully cut into squares and enjoy!
This recipe will make about 25 pieces.
