5 Minute "Almond Joy" Chocolate Bites

Last night I was having one of those nights... You know, those nights when the house is a mess, its past your bed time and all you can think about is CHOCOLATE.

I found a wonderful recipe over at Butter Believer and decided to change it up a bit to suite my cravings.

This recipe I threw together definitely hit the spot. It is the perfect sweetness with a touch of salty. I instantly fell in love. The best part about it? It takes 5 minutes of work then you throw it in the freezer. Easy Peasy.

Enjoy and please let me know what you think!

3/ 4 cup organic coconut oil
3/4 cup raw honey
1 tsp of vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 cup sliced almonds (broken-up)
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut 
1/2 tsp sea salt plus extra to salt top of chocolate. 
     * **  I used Himalayan pink sea salt and it was Divine. *** 


I. In a small saucepan melt the coconut oil, honey & Vanilla. Once melted whisk in cocoa and salt and then finish off by adding the almonds and coconut. Stir well. 

2. Line a small 11 x 7 baking dish with parchment paper and pour mixture evenly in the pan.. Salt the top to taste.. I love salt so tend to put a bit more on :)   place in the freezer till chilled ( took me about 1/2 hour) 

3. Remove from the freezer and cut into small squares. Keep in the fridge to keep solid. 

These were seriously AMAZING! I hope you love them as much as I did.
