16 Bars

Total time

30 minutes




  • coconut Layer:
  • 1¼ cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 2 tbs full fat canned coconut milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • chocolate Fudge Layer:
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • ¾ cup coconut oil (melted)
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • chocolate Drizzle:
  • ¼ cup dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1 tbs coconut oil


  1. Coconut Layer:
  2. Add all coconut layer ingredients (coconut, coconut oil, coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt) to a medium bowl and stir until everything is combined
  3. Set aside
  4. Chocolate Fudge Layer:
  5. Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper leaving some overhang for easy removal
  6. In a medium bowl, sift cocoa powder to break up and chunks
  7. Add in coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt and stir until well combined
  8. Pour the mixture into the prepped pan, and pop it in the freezer
  9. **Check on it every minute! You need to add the coconut layer on top BEFORE the chocolate layer is completely solid. How fast this happens depends on how cold your freezer is and if you're using a metal or glass pan. You want the chocolate fudge to still be a little soft. For me, this only took 4 minutes**
  10. While the fudge layer is still a bit soft from the freezer, add the coconut layer on top and gently press into the chocolate and into the corners of the pan
  11. Pop it back in the freezer while prepping the chocolate drizzle
  12. Chocolate Drizzle:
  13. To a microwave save bowl, add chocolate chips and 1 tbs solid coconut oil
  14. Microwave for 45-60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds to avoid burning
  15. Drizzle on top of the bars and place in the freezer for around 15-20 minutes to fully set
  16. Once the chocolate drizzle has hardened, it's ready!
  17. Remove from the pan and cut into 16 squares
  18. Store in the fridge/freezer until ready to eat
  19. Enjoy!
