I love chocolate, and I love coconut and so it was only natural that I would combine the two to create these sensational chocolate coconut bites. They are just sweet enough to keep your cravings at bay, and because they are in little bite-sized portions, it is easy to monitor how many you are eating.

    Once the coconut bites have frozen, make the chocolate. Place the cacao butter in a plastic or heat resistant bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals until the cacao butter has melted, stirring between each zap, and it has reached 105F - 113F.

    Using a spatula, move the chocolate around constantly until it thickens to a toothpaste consistency. Return it to the bowl and microwave it in 5-second intervals until the temperature is between 82F – 93F, mixing between each zap to remove any lumps.
