No bake chocolate bark

I started off making a totally different dessert and ended up having a little bit of chocolate and walnuts left over, so I thought I would try something simple with them.

I had previously been reading an article on how to make the best chocolate dip (you know the kind that hardens right as it hits the ice cream), and figured I could use the concept to make a little chocolate snack instead.

So here is an ever so tasty recipe for no bake chocolate bark.

INGREDIENTS

  • 250g of good quality dark chocolate
  • 3/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. rough chop dark chocolate and melt in small heavy bottom sauce pan
  2. pour chocolate into a mixing bowl, add avocado oil and stir until combined
  3. line a small baking sheet (9″ x 12″ works great) with parchment paper
  4. pour out chocolate mixture and sprinkle coconut, walnuts and sea salt on top
  5. put in freezer for 30 – 45 min. or until solid
  6. break up pieces and put into a container and keep frozen

 

SPECIAL NOTES

You can set (for one hour) and keep in refrigerator, the texture will be a little more like fudge.  I prefer it straight from the freezer.  If you want to treat yourself, break it up over vanilla ice cream.

You can substitute coconut oil for the avocado oil too – I happened to have avocado oil on hand, and although it adds a littel flavour, it is one that is complimented well with the dark chocolate.
