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

    Primal Fuel
    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.
