Ingredients
  • COCONUT FILLING
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 medjool dates
  • CHOCOLATE COATING
  • 25g cacao butter
  • 4 medjool dates
  • ⅛ cup water
  • ⅛ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
Instructions
  1. Make the coconut filling by blending the coconut, coconut oil and dates in a food processor until dates are well chopped. The coconut should still be chunky.
  2. Line a small dish (about 10cm by 20cm) with baking powder.
  3. Press the coconut mixture into the lined dish.
  4. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, make the chocolate coating by melting the cacao butter in a small bowl over a pan of hot water.
  6. Add the melted cacao butter to the food processor along with the dates, water, coconut oil and cacao powder.
  7. Blend until smooth.
  8. Remove the coconut mixture from the freezer and slice into finger sized bars.
  9. Roll the bars in the chocolate using a fork.
  10. Sit the bars on a sheet of baking paper on a tray.
  11. When all bars are coated with chocolate, put the tray in the freezer for 30 minutes, or fridge for an hour.
  12. Serve cold, and store bars in either the fridge or freezer.
