Simple Coconut Oil Chocolate Candies Recipe

Indulge in a guilt-free treat with these Simple Coconut Oil Chocolate Candies. Not only are they incredibly easy to make, but they're also a healthier alternative to traditional sweets. Packed with the goodness of coconut oil and raw cocoa, these candies are perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings.

Ingredients:

  • Coconut Oil (Tropical Traditions preferred): 1/2 cup
  • Cocoa Powder (raw preferred): 1/4 cup
  • Organic Raw Honey (or alternative sweeteners like maple syrup, yacon powder, stevia): 2 Tbsp, adjusted to taste
  • Vanilla Extract (optional): 1 tsp

Optional Add-ins:

  • Maca Powder: 2 Tbsp (mix with honey)
  • Orange Rind: 1 tsp (mix into chocolate)
  • Seeds, Nuts, or Dried Fruit: As desired (sprinkle into trays)
  • Dried Coconut: 1/4 cup (mix into chocolate)

Instructions:

  1. Melt the Coconut Oil: Gently heat the coconut oil until it just reaches its melting point. Avoid overheating to maintain a quick setting time.

  2. Combine Ingredients: In a bowl, whisk the melted coconut oil and honey together vigorously for 1-2 minutes to emulsify. This prevents the honey from sinking to the bottom.

  3. Add Cocoa Powder: Gradually add in the cocoa powder, continuing to whisk to ensure a smooth mixture.

  4. Flavor It Up: If desired, add vanilla extract or any of the optional ingredients to enhance the flavor and texture.

  5. Pour into Molds: Whisk the mixture as you pour it into a silicone ice cube tray or mini muffin tray to avoid honey separation.

  6. Set the Candies: Place the tray in the fridge or freezer. They should set within 15-30 minutes, depending on the initial temperature of the coconut oil.

  7. Enjoy: Once set, pop out your coconut oil chocolate candies and enjoy a healthy, sweet treat!

Tips:

  • Emulsification is Key: Ensure the coconut oil and honey are well emulsified to prevent separation.
  • Temperature Control: Don’t overheat the coconut oil; it needs to be just warm enough to blend smoothly with the other ingredients.
  • Whisk While Pouring: Continuous whisking while pouring the mixture into molds ensures even distribution of honey.
  • Experiment with Flavors: Feel free to get creative with add-ins like nuts, seeds, dried fruits, or maca powder for added nutrition and flavor.

These homemade coconut oil chocolates are not only a delight for the taste buds but also bring in the health benefits of coconut oil and raw cocoa. Enjoy these treats without any guilt!
