I love this Pecan Coconut Chocolate Bark, but sometimes it is fun to mix things up. Here are some fun variations I have tried.
- Espresso powder (add two teaspoons to the chocolate once it melts.)
- Pumpkin seeds + cayenne pepper
- Freeze-dried strawberries (unsweetened) + sliced almonds
- Keto dried cranberries
- Smoked almonds or pecans + ancho chili powder
- Extracts - mint, orange, or vanilla
Tips & Tricks for Melting Chocolate
- Don't skip finely chopping the chocolate as this helps it to melt quickly. A serrated knife works great for this task.
- To melt chocolate on the stove, you can use a double boiler, or you can set a heatproof bowl on top of simmering water. Make sure that you don't let the water touch the bowl. Stir often.
- To melt chocolate in the microwave, cook for 30 seconds and stir. Continue cooking in 30-second intervals until the chocolate is fully melted.
- Make sure you keep your spoon and any other tools dry. If water touches the chocolate, it will cause it to seize up.
- You can use chocolate chips in a pinch, but they do not melt as quickly because they are made with less cocoa butter.
How to Make Keto Chocolate Coconut Bark
See below for the full recipe with measurements.
Step 1: Start by chopping your chocolate finely. I like to use a serrated knife to do this.
Step 2: Next, melt the chocolate and coconut oil either on the stove or in the microwave. Make sure you read my tips and tricks section if you are new to melting chocolate. It isn't difficult, but there are a few things you need to know.
Step 3: After the chocolate is fully melted, give it a good whisk and then pour it onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roughly form it into a rectangle. (No need to be exact - after all you are going to be breaking into pieces when you are done.)
Step 4: Sprinkle the coconut and pecans over the chocolate bark. Allow it to set. You can do this at room temperature, provided your house isn't too warm or humid. I have no patience and usually throw it into the refrigerator or freezer. (Depending on which has room.)
Step 5: Once the chocolate is set, break or cut it into pieces. If you are tracking macros, you can cut it into even squares if you like.
This will keep at room temperature for at least a week or more. It can be frozen in an air-tight back for several months. (If you have that kind of willpower.)
