choc nut bites
by Collette White | 7 December, 2017
Good Afternoon friends! I hope this finds you all well. I am here to share with you today this totally scrumptious treat that my Miss 16 (miss _cutoutthecrap – Instagram) created. It took her a couple of goes to get it right but we were all happy to be her taste testers! I love the dark chocolate taste with a hint of sweetness and then the crunch of that macadamia inside. The perfect sized treat, although I must admit I don’t always stop at one! I hope you love them as much as we do.
½ cup coconut oil
1/3 cup cacao powder
2 tblspns coconut cream
2 tblspns honey
good pinch salt
1/3 cup nut butter
Line a 12 hole mini muffin tray with patty cases and set aside.
Place the coconut oil into a small saucepan and melt on a medium – low heat. Remove from heat.
Add cacao powder, coconut cream and honey and stir until smooth.
Pour a small amount of chocolate mixture into each patty case – no more than half full. Freeze for 5-10 minutes.
Add ½ tspn nut butter and 2 macadamias to the top of each chocolate base.
Top with the remaining chocolate, sprinkle with salt and freeze for 20 minutes.
Store in the freezer.
Note: The Coconut Cream is optional, we found that the chocolate is less bitter if you use it though.
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
