Ingredients

For the topping:

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x4 inch loaf pan with waxed paper, and grease with a little bit of coconut oil.

  2. In a sauce pan, combine the coconut oil and the sugar. Heat over medium low heat until melted and combined.
  3. Remove pan from heat and stir in the unsweetened coconut flakes.
  4. Press the mixture into the loaf pan and press down firmly with a piece of waxed paper so the coconut is very flat and tightly packed. Place the pan in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  5. Microwave the chocolate chips for 45 seconds, stir, and microwave for 10 second intervals if needed until fully melted. Stir in the 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil.
  6. Spread the chocolate over the chilled coconut bar mixture. Refrigerate again until fully cooled.
  7. Remove from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before serving. Slice into bars of desired size.

Recipe Notes

Store bars in the refrigerator.

Nutrition facts are for 1/16 of this recipe. So I sliced the slab of candy into 8 long slices, and then you can cut each slice in half. They are very rich.
