The tough part of going paleo/real food/natural/ancestral is the idea of giving up treats. While I was a carboholic, I was also known as quite the sweet tooth. Not many nights of college went by without me eating a bowl of Healthy Choice mint chocolate chip ice cream with white frosting on top and either graham crackers or animal crackers acting as a spoon. Almost.Every.Night. Ridiculous.
Did I also mention that I toyed with the idea of opening my own cupcake business? So, I was a bit terrified about the prospect of giving up sweets.
When I came across a framework for dark chocolate coconut bark, I knew I was on to something special.
Take 2 cups of shredded unsweetened coconut and stir in 1 cup of melted coconut oil and 1/4 cup raw local honey. Place in a foil lined 9 x 13 pan and put in the freezer to harden.
Melt 2 bars of 85% organic dark chocolate in a double boiler and pour immediately over the hardened crust. Sprinkle a pinch of Celtic sea salt before the chocolate hardens. Let set in the freezer and enjoy!!
