- Prep: 30 mins
- Yields: 12 approx
- Baking Paper,
- Baking Tray,
- Cooking Pan,
- Metal Whisk,
1Prepare a freezer-safe dish big enough for 12 bars (if you need to layer them, separate with sheets of baking paper).
2In a large bowl, mix the coconut, condensed milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla until thoroughly combined.
3With wet hands, shape the mixture into bar shapes and place in the freezer-safe container.
4Tip: shape the bars to be more rectangular than sausage-like to avoid them resembling something less appealing when covered with chocolate! Freeze for 1-2 hours or overnight.
5Meanwhile, prepare a tray or plate by lining it with baking paper.
6When the bars are frozen make the chocolate by melting the cacao butter in a bain marie and then whisking in the cacao powder, sweet freedom and remaining vanilla. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 5-10 minutes or until starting to thicken.
7Using forks to hold your bars, dip them one at a time into the chocolate, coat completely and place onto the prepared tray. Leave to set (and thaw) and enjoy.
8*The freezing part is just to keep the bar shapes while they are covered in chocolate – they don't need to stay frozen.
9Bars can be kept for up to 5 days in the fridge.
