• Coconut Chocolate Cubes

    • 1/2 cup coconut oil
    • 4 tablespoons dark chocolate powder
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 4-5 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
    • 2 pinches of salt
    • 1 chilled ice tray

    Melt the coconut oil slowly in a glass bowl sitting inside a pot of almost boiling water so that the water level is about half way up the bowl.  Add vanilla and whisk or beat with a fork until thoroughly combined.  In a separate bowl, mix the cinnamon and salt into the chocolate powder.  Then add the dry ingredients into the warm bowl of coconut oil with vanilla, and whisk until the mixture is completely smooth.  Mix in the shredded coconut last.

    Spoon the mixture into a chilled ice tray, filling each section about 3/4 full.  Place in the freezer for 15 minutes, then put into the fridge for fifteen more.  Pop out the cubes and enjoy a few, and then store the rest in a glass container in the fridge for a healthy, dessert-like treat anytime!  As an option, stick an almond or walnut into the cubes before putting into the freezer.
