Afternoon Snack…Chocolate ‘Bark’ made with Coconut Oil

You may have noticed I have a small obsession with “snacks”. 🙂  Yep, I am definitely a snacky sorta girl. I would much rather snack my way through the day, than have 3 big meals. If you’re familiar with my addictive Christmas treats, my hot chocolate bombs, or my chocolate chip mug cookies, you’ll understand why!

So here’s another snack idea that I just tried for the first time and was super excited about sharing!

A few days ago I posted 38 Different Uses for Coconut Oil. One of the things I listed called “Chocolate Bark” came from a comment that was left on one of the zillion website articles I read about Coconut Oil.

While I’m not a full-blown “chocoholic”…I do like a nice bite of chocolate! This actually seemed to fall in the “too good to be true” category….so, of course, I had to try it. 🙂

Ummm…I just finished the last piece! (I made it a few days ago…I promise I didn’t eat it all at one sitting!)  It was delicious!
(You can read about the healthy benefits of coconut oil in your diet here.)

Good and good for you! You can’t beat a combo like that!

Chocolate ‘bark’ with Virgin coconut oil

  • 4 T. (1/4 cup) Virgin Coconut Oil (I used Nutiva Coconut Oil)
  • 1-T. Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 t. lowcarb sweetener, such as stevia (I used about 3 teaspoons of Truvia, but it’s not concentrated)
  • 2 oz sliced almonds optional (I threw in some of my chopped Roasted Almonds)
  • 2 oz coconut flakes optional

Melt the coconut oil to a liquid LOW heat.

Add in cocoa powder and sweetener.

Stir to combine and blend well. 

Add nuts and flakes into chocolate mixture (optional).

Pour onto a plate with wax paper (I only had foil) on it, put in refrigerator or freezer on LEVEL shelf and let set 10 minutes or so.

It will harden quickly and breaks up easy, put in a plastic bag and keep in refrigerator or freezer. (I tried both and liked the refrigerator better.)

I would love to know what you think!
