Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites

Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites

Wow.  I’m so glad I found this recipe.

You could say I’m pretty much in love with the dark chocolate~coconut flavor combination and with tasty treats that aren’t loaded with refined sugar and flour.  So for me, this is a perfect dessert.  They’re stored in the freezer to keep them firm so I just pull one out when I want a little something sweet.  And then I smile because I just ate a tasty treat that was fairly nutritious.

These dark chocolate coconut bites are very similar to a Mounds or Almond Joy candy bar but with less chocolate and more coconut.  They’re small ~ about three or four bites, but it seems to be just enough to satisfy my sweet tooth.

If you love dark chocolate combined with coconut and nuts, you absolutely must make these.
