Serves: 12
  • 8-9 oz of dark chocolate
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup dry unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp coconut extract (optional if you want more coconut flavor)
  • 1 tbsp sugar (optional)
  • Raw almonds (optional)
  1. In a mini muffin tin, place 12 mini cupcake liners.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute and then in 30 second increments after that, making sure you stir the chocolate after each time until it is completely melted.
  3. Place about 1 teaspoon of chocolate in each liner and coat well.
  4. Place in the refrigerator to harden.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the coconut oil, dry unsweetened coconut flakes and coconut extract. (You may want to add about a tablespoon of sugar if you like it a little sweeter or using sweetened flaked coconut is another option!)
  6. Add one tablespoon of the coconut mixture to each liner and then cover with another spoonful of melted chocolate.
  7. If you want to add an almond do so before you add the final spoonful of melted chocolate!
  8. Let harden in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
