I am sorry. I will go ahead and say it now. I am sorry because once you make these incredibly easy and unbelievably good little morsels, you will curse my name for bringing them into your house. Unless of course your one of those people that can control yourself when tempting foods are around (teach me please!).
The only reason I made these was because I knew I could make them super small and portion control myself with just two. But that takes real will power…these are SO yummy!
Dark chocolate, coconut, dense fudgy texture, and no refined sugars…..a perfect treat!! And don’t forget that heart healthy coconut oil, dare I call these health food?!
So don’t say I didn’t warn you! Hail Merry is one of those companies I am happy to support, doing good things for our bodies…I love responsible companies! I created this recipe going off the back of the Hail Merry Choco Macaroons ingredient list (and they are JUST as yummy!). And if you like Hail Merry Lemon Tarts, see my knock off recipe!
- 2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened preferable
- ½ cup coconut oil (scant)
- 4-5 tablespoon cocoa powder (good stuff, not cheap stuff, I really enjoy Dagoba...and they are local for me!)
- ¼ cup honey, coconut nectar, or maple syrup (or more to taste, not too much though, or you'll mess with the texture. You could also use liquid stevia as a sweetness booster!)
- ½ teaspoon vanilla powder or extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until well mixed, scraping down the sides as necessary. You want to make sure all ingredients are incorporated, it will be thick!
- Roll into little balls with your hands, or scoop some dough out, and plop down on a wax paper or a Silpat lined cookie sheet.
- Chill in the freezer or fridge. Store in an airtight container, in the fridge or freezer.
