Simple, relatively healthy and utterly addictive, these chocolate coconut bites are every bit as delicious as their shop-bought namesake
  • 275g unsweetened dessicated coconut
  • 85ml coconut oil, melted & divided
  • 65ml maple syrup
  • generous pinch sea salt
  • 225g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  1. In a blender, combine the coconut, 70ml coconut oil, maple syrup and salt. Blitz for 1 - 2 minutes to form a thick, coarse mixture.
  2. Divide between two 12-hole ice cube trays, pressing down firmly so that the mixture is tightly packed. Freeze for 30 minutes or until set.
  3. Pop the coconut bites out of the ice cube trays then place on a tray lined with baking parchment and refrigerate while you melt the chocolate.
  4. In a heatproof bowl suspended over a pan of barely simmering water, melt the chocolate and remaining 15ml coconut oil, stirring until smooth. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.
  5. One at a time, dip your coconut bites into the melted chocolate, ensuring all sides are evenly coated. Remove to the parchment lined tray using two forks then refrigerate until firm before trimming off any excess chocolate.
  6. Will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for several weeks.
