  • Let's make something - dark, dark, chocolate, coconut oil, macadamia nuts

    I was thinking of making some kind of bark, but really don't know how to do it. Anyone ever melted chocolate and mixed in cnut oil? What do you end up with? Should I forgo the oil and use shredded coconut itself?

    O' great cooks, lend me your wisdom.

    i make "coco crack" which is basically coconut oil, unsweetened cocoa, and sweetener of your choosing (and then add whatever "extras" you want)

          I just did this not 15 minutes ago. I took an 88% dark chocolate bar, melted it on the lowest microwave setting (about a minute and a half for me, but I watched it the whole time), and mixed it with about a cup of coconut oil (trying to get about equal ratios). I then poured it in a baking pan with sides that had wax paper in it and am letting it chill in the freezer. I just checked it and it's nearly solid now. Then I usually cut it into pieces and wrap them up in the wax paper and put that into a large freezer bag.

                I've made coconut bark by mixing in some dutched cocoa powder and sweetener. I liked it a lot better than my cardamom vanilla batch.

                You could get cacao butter, mix in cocoa powder, a little sweetener, and crack-a-damias, spread it in pan. Or you could do coconut cream concentrate with cocoa powder and sweetener (it's like fudge). If you want to get really crazy, take the coconut cream & cocoa powder and add La Nouba marshmallows (sugar/gluten/carb free marshmallows- VERY satisfying when you have a wicked marshmallow craving)

                  It does not have the dark chocolate but I've been planning on making this coconut bark next time I cook something "sweet".

                  It looks pretty delicious to me.

                        Awesome. I made the Ground Beef and Cabbage from your site about a week ago. It was A+.

                              there is also a "chocolate pudding" (or fudge depending on the amount of water you include) recipe on Tropical Traditions that is tasty!
                              coconut creme concentrate, coconut oil, cocoa powder, sweetener, and water

                              just another idea for you...i call it "meatsghetti"

                              pan fry shredded cabbage in coconut oil
                              ground meat of your choice

                              heap cabbage on plate, top with meat

                              most of the time i add rooster sauce while the cabbage is sauteing (sp?) and sometimes i use chicken breast with sweeter seasonings so it has a bit of a sweet/hot vibe
