coconut oil is necessary for making coconut bark. You lay it out in a pan flat, so 1c makes a lot. Coconut milk would not work, imo.
Ok.. this looks fabu! Question though.. 1 c coconut oil??? What would happen if I used coconut milk?? He recommends that the treat remain frozen until consumption so any thoughts??
What's wrong with a cup? Try leafing through a CW cake or cookie cookbook and look at how much butter those recipes call for.
I expect if you used coconut milk instead of coconut oil, you would probably get chocolate pudding instead of a bark that breaks into pieces.
Jhc- I think it was a knee jerk reaction.. 1 c just seemed like a whole lot.
Blackbird- pudding?? may need to try that too!
Well, most desert recipes are basically fat and sugar, so most primal desert recipes are basically fat.
got it! That makes sense. Thanks.
athomeontherange, if you really want pudding, check out my low carb haupia recipe here in the forum. If you want an even more basic haupia recipe, lmk. (2 packets gelatin + 1 can coconut milk = haupia joy!)
Please do not make it!!! It tastes way too good!
Seriously I made it last week and it is hard for me not to eat the whole thing in one sitting. I would keep 5x 70%+ chocolate bars in the freezer and hardly eat one in a few months, but this stuff is amazing. I would definitely make it with the CO. The extra fat really makes the recipe IMO.
For pudding, check out this:
I have tried it with Thai Kitchen light, premium (full-fat non-organic) and organic milk and each time the result was fabulous.
