    Almond Chocolate Bites

    Makes 12 Sweets



    • 1 cup (90g) unsweetened shredded coconut, lightly packed
    • 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • Pinch of rock salt
    • 15/20 whole almonds
    • 110g green & blacks chocolate, chopped


    1. In a food processor, add the shredded coconut, coconut oil, honey, vanilla extract, and salt until it forms a thick paste, about 2-3 minutes.
    2. Test the coconut to see if it holds together by squeezing it in your palm. If the coconut is still too loose, continue to process for 1-2 more minutes.
    3. Drop the coconut mixture by the tablespoon onto a non-stick baking tray or parchment paper. Form each ball into a small rectangle by pressing it into formation
    4. Press an almond or 2 on top of the coconut rectangles / squares / balls
    5. Freeze the coconut for 15-30 minutes, or until solid.
    6. Melt the chopped chocolate in a bowl over a heated pan of water, stirring well until the chocolate is smooth.
    7. Skewer each frozen candy bar onto a toothpick and dip into the melted chocolate, tapping off any excess chocolate. Wait for the chocolate to dry before removing from the toothpick.
    8. Serve immediately or store at room temperature for several days (if they last that long).
