    I've done this a few times and it is pretty darned good. I've never done it with coconut in it (other than the oil); but, I've made it with chopped nuts mixed in. It ended up kind of like chocolate bark.

      My personal fav is:
      -4 TBS Coconut Oil
      -4 TBS Cream from can of coconut milk
      -1 TBS Raw honey
      -Hand full of roasted walnuts.

      Melt together over double boiler, pour into mold (I use a tupperwear dish), and refrigerate. I comes out kind of like a light fluffy fudge, very tasty.

        Uhm, Sambo, how much chocolate powder do you add to the liquids?

          Start with unsweetened chocolate and cocoa butter, nature's perfect food.

              I wonder if it would be good with some chopped bacon added...

                  Oh yea, guess I forgot the most important part! Whoops.

                  I use 1-2 TBS depending on how chocolatey I'm feeling. I've also tried using one square of bakers unsweetened chocolate and it worked just fine as well.

                      Not sure bout the choc-bacon, but everything else sounds great.

                        I wonder if coconut flour would work instead of the shredded coconut. Anybody tried that?

                          In Ukraine they make chocolate covered salo. Salo is basically bacon, just lightly cured. Chocolate does go with savory applications....

                          And thank you, Sambo. Gotta try it as treats once we run out of the chcolate bar in a few weeks.

                            Well, don't think you can go far wrong, if you start with organic cocoa and coconut oil, then have a play around getting the textures right, even a fail will probably have little resistance down the gullet, already drooling like Homer Simpson with donuts.

                            Fair enough may be worth a try, but if succesful, could become an iron clad addiction.
