I may have a slight obsession with ch9ocolate and coconut. Thanks to Trim Healthy Mama I can indulge in both without guilt! I love being a Trim Healthy Mama. I’ve lost over 60+ lbs to date (in about five months).
On pinterest, I came across a pin for Coconut Crack Bars. It looked delicious, but I thought it would be even better with some skinny chocolate added.
I doubled the recipe for the coconut crack bars and I suggest making a simple syrup from Truvia (I used my homemade version of truvia) in place of the agave. I found that after I blended the mixture together, I needed to add a bit more water to make the mixture combine better. You need to taste the coconut mixture and to be sure it taste sweet enough for you. I always seem to add more than the recipe calls for because I do have a sweet tooth.
After I got the coconut mixture tasting just right, I scooped it into my deluxe mini muffin pan and then pressed it down to make little wells for the skinny chocolate. You could easily do this recipe in a brownie 9 by 9 ban or whatever small pan you have available. Just do one layer chocolate and one layer of coconut crack bar.
This is my version of the skinny dark chocolate which I love (based from the THM version)! Blend all below ingredients together in a blender (single serving works great). Again, taste it before you start pouring it to make sure it taste good to you.
- 1/2 c of Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil in liquid form (you can use refined if you don’t like the coconut taste)
- 1/4 c of Ghirardelli’s Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 6 heaping tsps of powdered truvia (again, I use a homemade version)
- 3 pinches of Celtic Salt
- 1 square of Ghirardelli’s 86% Midnight Reverie Chocolate Bar
After I was sure my skinny dark chocolate had my desired sweetness, I then poured the skinny chocolate into the wells. I had more chocolate then coconut, so I filled a couple more wells with just the chocolate. I popped my muffin pan into the freezer for about an hour. It was a little hard to get the ones with the coconut mixture to pop out, but I found putting a butter knife straight down helped to get them to pop out. A silicone mold would be easier to work with.
These are a great yummy treat for those who love a dark skinny chocolate and coconut!
If coconut isn’t your thing – here is my version of Skinny Dark Chocolate made into fancy chocolate with the help of a silicone mold.
