Vegan Coconut Chocolate hearts

Share this


These 4 Ingredient chocolates are so easy to make and are a ‘not so naughty’ chocolate treat to enjoy. Reminiscent of the classic ‘Bounty bar‘ ,It’s definitely one of my favourites.

Ingredients
1 cup dessicated coconut
1tbs Agave syrup or brown rice syrup (If you are not vegan you could use honey)
3tbs coconut oil
½ block Vegan dark melting chocolate (check the ingredients for no milk solids)
(double this recipe for the coconut bars)

Method
For coconut hearts:
You will need a flexible Heart shaped chocolate mould like this.
Melt the coconut oil and agave/brown rice syrup gently until liquid.
Pour the coconut into a bowl and combine with the melted liquid until it resembles slightly wet sand.
Pour your mix carefully into the moulds and press down firmly.
Transfer to the freezer for 1 hour or until firm enough to remove form the mould without losing shape.
Melt your chocolate on the stove or microwave.
Take your frozen coconut hearts one at a time and dip in the chocolate to cover.
Transfer to a baking tray or plate lined with baking paper and return to the fridge to set.
Keep them in the fridge until serving but they will do fine in room temperature for a few hours without melting (as long as its not summer!)


For coconut bars
Melt the coconut oil and agave/brown rice syrup gently until liquid.
Line your baking dish or pyrex dish with baking paper.

Transfer to the freezer for 1 hour or until firm enough to remove form the mould without losing shape.
Remove the frozen coconut from the baking dish by lifting the baking paper and transfer to a chopping board.
