Chocolate & coconut pyramids

Something different, no real ‘cooking’ required.

Image

With the quantities below I made around 30 of these little beauties, so adjust according to your needs.

1/2 cup of canned coconut milk

1/2 cup coconut butter (try making your own by blitzing unsweetened dessicated coconut like, forever, it’s fun!)

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1 small jar almond butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup dessicated coconut

1 cup flaked almonds

pinch of salt

Image

Put your coconut milk, coconut butter, maple syrup, almond butter and cocoa powder in a small saucepan and just warm slightly to help it all combine.

Remove from the heat and add the vanilla and salt.

Pour this over the dessicated coconut and almonds in a separate bowl and stir thoroughly to combine.

Shape the firm mixture into pyramids (or whatever takes your fancy) and lay out on baking parchment, then refrigerate until firm.
