    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.

    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.

    Thanks Doc

    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.

    Word. When you're eating anything coconut related, you don't need sugar. Coconut is sweet by itself!

    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.

    I have tried it with Thai Kitchen light, premium (full-fat non-organic) and organic milk and each time the result was fabulous.
