This one here is my v simple bounty recipe from a few weeks back. A perfect little weekend activity and outcome.
1 cup coconut butter
2 1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tbsp coconut yoghurt or coconut cream (optional)
Double Batch Raw Chocolate
Soak shredded coconut in water for 20 mins (not essential but this will help soften the coconut and make for a softer filling)
Melt coconut butter, coconut oil, honey over a double boiler.
Drain coconut through sieve and gently squeeze, leaving a little water still in coconut.
Put drained coconut in food processor with melted ingredients.
Add in yoghurt or coco cream, if you have some handy, will create even moister/creamier texture, but not essential!
Blend to combine. I prefer a smoother texture, so blend for 60 seconds until shreds are slightly broken up, can blend for less if prefer more texture.
Press into a lined tray and smooth down the top.
Put in freezer to harden for 15 mins.
Prepare a double batch of our Raw Chocolate Recipe.
Once choc is made, let cool for a few mins, to thicken.
Cut hardened coconut insides into desired shapes (I went for 2 x 5cm-ish blocks).
With a fork gently dip each block into chocolate bowl, coating completely in chocolate and placing on lined tray.
Harden bars in fridge & marvel at the fact you're now a chocolatier!
