  • 100 g coconut oil
  • 75 g cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Optional extras:

  • roughly chopped nuts
  • dried fruit of your choice roughly chopped if necessary


  • Weigh the coconut oil and spoon into a microwave safe bowl.
  • Heat in the microwave at short 10-15 second intervals, stirring in between, until the oil has completely melted and is clear.
  • Add the cocoa powder, honey and vanilla extract to the melted coconut oil.  Quickly stir until fully combined and smooth.

To make individual chocolate cubes:

  • Spoon chocolate into an ice cube tray or silicone mould.
  • Add nuts and/or dried fruit if wanted.
  • Place in the freezer until set, around 15-20 minutes
  • Pop out of the mould and enjoy!

To make chocolate bark:

  • Pour the chocolate mixture onto a lined baking tray and spread out over the tray with the back of the spoon.
  • Working quickly, scatter nuts and/or dried fruit of your choice over the chocolate
  • Place the baking tray into the fridge or freezer until set, around 10-15 minutes.
  • Once set, break or cut the slab of chocolate into smaller pieces to serve.



Once set, this type of chocolate should be stored in an airtight box the fridge until ready to eat, as it will melt and get quite soft in a warm room.
