Filling

  • 5 Tablespoons salted butter, room temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons corn syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut cream
  • 4 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Chocolate Coating

  • 1 ½ cups dark chocolate pieces
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons coconut oil

Filling

  • Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • With an electric mixer, beat together butter, corn syrup, and coconut cream.
  • Beat in confectioners sugar.
  • Stir in vanilla.
  • Mix in shredded coconut.
  • Press into prepared pan.

  • Cut into 1-inch squares.
  • Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes, until firm.

Coating

  • In a medium, microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate and coconut oil.
  • Microwave in 15 second increments, stirring after each, until chocolate is melted.
  • Continue stirring until smooth.

Putting It Together

  • Dip each square into chocolate mixture.
  • Drain.
  • Set on prepared pan.

Notes

  • Make sure you use coconut cream, NOT cream of coconut or coconut milk.
  • Use dried and unsweetened coconut for this recipe!
  • The fridge is very important for this recipe! If the filling ever feels a little too soft to be working with, you can place it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
  • If the chocolate starts to set before you're done dipping the filling, don't worry! You can re-melt the filling in the microwave. Just be careful to not over-heat it!
  • Decorate with a chocolate drizzle and unsweetened shredded coconut to really make these chocolates POP!
