Coco-holic Love Bites

I am not sure if you have noticed but I am mildly obsessed with coconut….. Ok well ‘mildly’ might be and understatment….. I am enormously obsessed with coconut. My name is Shannon and I am a cocoholic. It has been 15mins since my last fix. I know I have a problem, I have no interest in fixing it.

So Coconut Butter V’s Coconut Oil?!? Coconut oil is JUST the oil that is extracted from the meat. Coconut butter is the whole meat of the coconut pureed into a creamy butter.

About 1 cup Coconut Butter divided into 2 bowls
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla powder or vanilla essence
Peppermint oil- 1-2 drops
1 tbs raw cacao
Stevia or agave to taste (optional) – I didn’t use sweetener but have a taste & add it if you want to

In one bowl of coconut butter add cinnamon & vanilla and about a tsp of agave or stevia (if using) and mix well. Spoon into chocolate moulds or a small container to make a small block. Pop in the fridge to set or freezer if you are completely impatient like me.
In the other half, add cacao, peppermint oil and sweetener (if using), mix well and spoon into moulds or into a small container like a bar. Pop in the fridge or freezer until set. I made some vanilla, some peppermint Choc and some that are a mix of both. Ah YUM!

Look at this heavenly coconut treat…..
