Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars-Easy To Make!
Growing up, Bounty was my favorite chocolate bar, but even the dark chocolate variety is just too sugary for me now. Initially, the dark chocolate coconut bar recipe is to be made separately and then mixed and served in miniature shapes that would then be frozen and covered in chocolate.
The coconut filling is pressed into a tin, frozen, and then cut into bars to simplify the process. Simply reduce the size of your minis to continue making them. If you enjoy dark chocolate, it can be difficult to switch to another type of chocolate.
These dark chocolate coconut bars are adored for their delectably rich flavor and blend of bitter and sweet flavors. In addition to tasting good, some people even frequently drink dark chocolate due to its many health benefits. You will be amazed to know the benefits of dark chocolate coconut bars.
Cacao beans, sugar, an emulsifier such as soy lecithin to maintain texture, and flavorings like vanilla make up the basic ingredients to increase the sweetness in dark chocolate. Dark chocolate will taste harsh and have a higher cocoa content and lower sugar content; a small amount is regarded as a healthy snack.
Dark chocolate should always be melted gently to make these chocolate coconut bars. On the stovetop, it can be done in a double boiler, or in the microwave in small batches. Although it is possible to melt chocolate chips, they are not the ideal option because they are made to resist melting. Using a kitchen scale will assure accuracy because weight is frequently used in recipes to measure chocolate. Weigh it before breaking up the chocolate. Typically, six squares of chocolate make up one cup and one ounce of chocolate.
Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars: It’s Damn Tasty!
- 1 Spatula
- 1 Bowl
- 1 Saucepan
- 1 Parchment Paper
- 1 Freezer safe dish
- 225 gram sweetened shredded coconut about 2 ¼ cups, divided
- ⅔ Cup sweetened condensed milk 160ml
- 2 Teaspoon light corn syrup 10ml
- ½ Teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- hefty pinch of salt
- 225 gram dark chocolate chunks that are very finely chopped
- Gather ingredients and mix them well: About three-quarters of the sweetened shredded coconut should be added to a food processor, and only enough pulses should be used to slightly break it down which should resemble coarse crumbs. Avoid over-processing the mixture since it will become too fine and the coconut fat may cause it to clump. In a small dish, combine this coconut with the remaining shredded coconut to give it a contrasting texture and set it aside.
- Prepare for freezing: Dark chocolate chunks, sweetened condensed milk, corn syrup, vanilla extract, and salt are combined in a small saucepan and heated over low heat. The mixture is stirred until the chocolate is entirely melted and the liquid is smooth about 5 minutes. Add the coconut and mix everything thoroughly and keep it in the freezer for about 2 hours.
- Shaping the coconut mixture: Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and shape them into cylindrical logs and keep them back in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
- Melt the dark chocolate: Take a heatproof bowl and melt the dark chocolate and make sure to stir it well.
- Combine chocolate and coconut: This is the last step where you can dip the cylindrical-shaped coconut into melted dark chocolate and your dark chocolate coconut bars are ready to eat.
Storing and serving suggestions:
Store these dark chocolate coconut bars in the freezer and enjoy them whenever you want to eat them. Cut them into miniature shapes and serve them to your guests. For more sweeteners, you can make use of honey and cacao powder.
