Toasted Coconut Chocolate Bar

These Toasted Coconut Chocolate Bars take some time to make, but are fully worth the effort. If you don’t have much experience working with chocolate, you might prefer to set the Toasted Coconut Bar filling into a silicone mould and hand dipping them in chocolate. If you have chocolate work experience, you’ll find this relatively straight forward.

I made my Toasted Coconut Bar filling from scratch by lightly toasting the coconut and grinding it into a butter using a Stone Grinder. But you can easily make it in a blender or food processor too. Just be sure there is no water present in the grinding machine or it will stop the coconut from turning into a runny butter.

In place of coconut butter you could sub out any other nut or seed butter you like. You’ll just need to add 20g of melted cacao butter as well so it sets inside the chocolate cavity. This is because coconut butter contains the oil which is what sets the butter at room / cool temps. Nut butters don’t set, so you’ll need to add the cacao butter for that reason.
