Easy Raw Chocolate Bark
serves 1-2

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons coconut oil, softened
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon maple syrup or honey

Directions:

In a small bowl, combine all three ingredients and mix until well combined. Taste the mixture, and adjust sweetness, to taste.

*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.

Transfer the chocolate mixture to a dish lined with parchment paper, and smooth with a spatula. No need for fancy candy molds!

Place in the freezer to set for 20 minutes, then use a sharp knife to cut into bite-sized chunks.

Serve directly from the freezer and enjoy!

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.

How can I soften the coconut oil without melting it?

    megan

    I second this question. This stuff was delicious but kind of challenging/messy to make.

Chris

Has anyone tried making this with Stevia? I wonder if it would work and how much Stevia you would substitute for the honey?

Tiffany

Megan, thank you for another DELICIOUS, easy recipe! I ended up added a little vanilla, dash of salt, unsweetened coconut and dark chocolate chips….unbelievably good!!

Hi, Megan. I love this chocolate bark. I have made batch after batch and poured into heart shaped silicone candy/soap mold. I then froze it and removed and packaged into little packages for gifts. I just kept them cold and told the recipients it needs to stay cold! They loved them!

I have also made several with pouring a first layer of chocolate bark, freezing 10 minutes, pressing thin layer of almond butter sweetened with honey and then topping with layer of chocolate bark and freezing. Very rich.

I plan to make one that has a layer of chocolate bark, dates that have been processed into a paste, nuts and top with another layer of chocolate bark next.

However, here is my question: I tried to sub carob powder for the cocoa powder. The carob seized with my honey and i couldn’t get the melted coconut oil to ever mix in. So i just had this blob of carob/honey and the oil running around it. Is there a trick to using carob powder? My carob was Chatfields. Do i need a different brand. Everything was room temperature.

Thanks so much for all you do! I love your recipes! Sharon

2 tablespoons of coconut oil is 240 calories. I’m on a low calorie diet. :'(

About how many squares of chocolate does this recipe make? I’m so excited to try this I’ve tried a recipe pretty much just like this for chocolate chunks but it doesn’t work for cooking with. However, as chocolate bark I bet it’ll be delicious!! Can’t wait!!

Emma

Have you tried using this chocolate mix to coat your peanut butter balls?

    Megan

    Yes, it works well– you just have to make sure the peanut butter filling is really frozen so that the chocolate mixture hardens instantly.

Joan

I was looking for a recipe for just chocolate bark and was very happy to find yours. Thanks for all the great recipes and info. Smiles.

Debi

Mine did not come out looking like this! The mixture was very think. I replaced coconut nectar for the honey and even added a little extra to try and thin out but it wasn’t as “wet” after I mixed like in your photos. Also very hard to smooth out on to parchment paper! Any suggestions?!

    Willow

    You have to work pretty quickly because the chocolate starts to thicken and harden fast. The same thing happened to me.

Martha

I want to try making this with stevia. Anyone know how much would you use and would you use liquid or powder?

    Megan

    I would use liquid stevia, since it would mix in more seamlessly. The amount to use is totally up to your taste buds– just taste as you go!
