Large coconut flakes are mixed in melted chocolate to form gorgeous, delicious coconut clusters. Yes, it’s as good as it sounds!
The idea for these delicious coconut clusters comes from a recipe I used to make in the past, before lowering my carb intake became a priority.
These chocolate corn flakes clusters are amazing in their simplicity, and I wanted to make something similar without using corn flakes. The answer: use large, unsweetened coconut flakes and mix those in the melted chocolate to form pretty, sweet clusters.
Using unsweetened coconut and 70% chocolate make this dessert not just tasty and decadent, but also very healthy.
- 1 (3.5 oz) bar dark chocolate (70% cocoa; I use Lindt), broken into pieces
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- ¾ cup (90 grams) unsweetened coconut flakes
- Line 10 muffin cups with paper liners.
- In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt together the chocolate and coconut oil, gently mixing with a small rubber spatula until smooth.
- As soon as chocolate is melted, turn heat off. Add the coconut flakes and mix to coat the flakes with the melted chocolate.
- Spoon the mixture into the paper liners. Refrigerate 1 hour prior to serving.
