Coconut oil chocolate is a healthier alternative to that good old bar of chocolate when you need a treat. It’s made with coconut oil which is a healthy metabolism boosting fat, cocoa and a natural sweetener in the form of honey.
I’m not going to lie to you though, it’s not exactly a Dairy Milk but if you like dark chocolate then coconut oil chocolate is a delicious healthy alternative and my fussy eater, Master Frugal is a massive fan of it. His sister on the other hand isn’t keen and says it’s too much like dark chocolate for her which I thought I would agree with but I love it!
How to make coconut oil chocolate
200g (1 cup) coconut oil
100g (1 cup) cocoa powder
170g (1/2 cup) honey
- Coconut oil chocolate is so easy to make – just add your ingredients to a pan and very gently heat it until the coconut oil melts and everything is combined, stirring constantly.
- Next you can pour it into moulds if you’re making actual chocolates, if you are making individual chocolates then you really need to use silicone moulds for this so you can pop the chocolates out when they’re set.
- If you’re making coconut oil chocolate bark like I did then you can line a shallow baking dish with baking paper and just pour over the chocolate. I sprinkled mine with some flaked almonds for some added flavour and texture and also added a little gold glitter dust which has been added to just about everything I’ve cooked since I got it on sale a while ago!
- Finally you need the pop your chocolate in the freezer until it sets.
I left ours to set overnight and the next day it looked amazing! I broke it up into pieces and made coconut oil chocolate bark with it as we were having friends round for some drinks….
It tastes very much like dark chocolate but it’s a bit softer and the almonds and glitter really did make it feel a little bit luxurious if you know what I mean. I’m not sure that it’ll be everyone’s cup of tea but out of 9 people who tried this, 7 loved it!
It would be great with some sea salt, chilli flakes or even dried fruit scattered on the top before it sets or you could even make a rocky road version with some mini marshmallows and some crumbled biscuit.
