Oh man. OH MAN. This recipe is killer people, killer. It’s so good and so easily adjusted that you can make a million awesome versions of this chocolate. Also, it’s totally dairy free! Woohoo! So the first time I made it I just poured it out on wax paper and froze it like that to make a chocolate bark but I found it was messy looking and, due to the quick melting nature of coconut oil, the bark would dissolve quickly in my fingers.
Using any kind of adorable silicon mould makes it easier to eat, plus it ups the wow factor! Keep in mind you have to use a mould that you can pop things out of, you can’t use a solid plastic hard mould (like for ice cubes) or it will never leave it’s new plastic home. On to the recipe!
Healthy Coconut Oil Chocolate
1. Dump the coconut oil, cocoa powder, salt, and sweetener of choice into a non-stick pot.
2. Mix together on low-medium heat until the sweetener is blended in thoroughly. You don’t need to cook anything, you’re just trying to melt it all together. Turn off the heat.
3. If you are using a mould with details (like my Hello Kitty mould) chop the add-ins to make them finer so they don’t ruin the details of your mould. If you are using a generic shape mould, you can sprinkle in the add-ins without chopping them.
4. Pour the chocolate into the moulds and place in the freezer for 15-30 minutes. The deeper the mould the longer it will take to cool off.
5. Pop them out and enjoy! Keep all the chocolate in the fridge or else it will melt down. :D
Some suggestions for add-ins:
-mini marshmallows (if you’re feeling naughty)
-edible flowers (I used edible lavender and rose before, it looked super pretty)
-edible gold dust sprinkled in the mould first
-chai tea (I sprinkled it into the chocolate first)
-chili powder for a spicy chocolate oh yeah
-a few drops of mint extract
-a few drops of orange extract
It is really up to you how healthy you want this to be. I like adding the nuts and goji berries because it gives the chocolate a healtheier boost than adding, let’s say, mini-marshmallows. But if you’re going to party, why not make some healthy-ish rocky road style chocolate? Walnuts and mini-marshmallows are a great combo!
If you’re not interested in making these, but just want to use these awesome Hello Kitty Moulds (I don’t blame you), you can find them on Gmarket and get the party started in other ways!
So let me know if you end up making these, and I’d love to hear what additions you’ve made to the recipe. :D ENJOY!
