Recipe Notes

It's important that the coconut oil is not melted, or the coconut oil and cocoa powder will separate while setting. For a smooth texture, solid or softened coconut oil is best.

This recipe is incredibly versatile, so feel free to get creative! Add more or less honey, to taste, a handful of shredded coconut, sliced almonds, dried fruit, cocoa nibs… the combinations are endless.

I add dry dark cherries and nuts to mine, and I also use liquid stevia instead of honey.

You can change up flavors by using flavored liquid stevia instead of honey, like peppermint liquid stevia for that fresh breeze chocolate taste..

jamie

delicious! and when you put it on ice cream it becomes “magic shell” YES!!

I have been trying the normal chocolate making recipe. But i don’t know why, the liquid is not solidifying.
I used butter, milk, cocoa powder and powdered sugar and some flour. Anything wrong with the ingredient? Or should i have used powdered milk!

Cara

I use this to make chocolate covered strawberries! Yummmmmm!

pri

can you use normal sunflower oil instead of coconut oil?

    Megan Gilmore

    No, you need an oil that is solid when chilled. Coconut oil does that and so does real butter.

Sharon

I’ll have to wait until winter to make this as coconut oil is liquid from spring until the end of fall here in Phoenix!

Michelle

UM! This is sooooooo DELISH! I didn’t even want to wait for it to harden! Next time I’m just making the JAR of coconut oil ratio! I added raw sprouted pumpkin seeds with a pinch of salt.

Sheila

I just made this and I’m amazed at how easy this was. I had almost everything except for the honey but I used Stevia instead and it turned out wonderful. I’m for sure keeping this on my go to recipes.

Maya

This is sooo yummy!!! I added some coconut flakes and crushed almonds (or nut butter)for texture
I put a little less honey and throw in a few goji berries? it’s my go to choc fix❤️

Hi. I’m looking for a chocolate chip recipe made using raw cocoa powder. I am wanting it for cooking, for cookies and such. I noticed someone commented that this would not work for cooking. Do you feel that is accurate or could this be broken into small pieces to use instead of chocolate chips?
Thanks. Your website looks great. I’ll be looking around for more recipes! : )

    Because this recipe is made with coconut oil, it will completely melt at 76 degrees. I’m not sure what that melting would do to your baked goods… you’d probably have better luck working with raw cacao butter to make the chocolate instead of coconut oil, but I haven’t tried that myself since it’s more of a specialty ingredient.

Hi Megan, I have a question. I use cacoa powder daily (I put 1 TBSP in my smoothies, and I eat about 1/2 of this recipe of chocolate bark each day for dessert). I just saw on the back of my organic cacoa powder bag a warning that Cadmium was in it and can cause cancer. Eeek! I was digging around on the internet, and can’t really tell what a “safe” amount is that I can consume. Was just wondering what you thought about it all? We love our cacoa powder, and I hate to give it up! Love your recipes and appreciate any insight you can give. 🙂

How do we go about softening the coconut oil?
