These no bake vegan chocolate coconut treats are easy to make and really delicious. They last for a couple of weeks in the fridge, making them the tasty little treat that keeps on giving.
  • 4 tablespoons thick coconut milk (from the top of the can)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut essence
  • 200g dessicated coconut
  • 200g coconut cream
  • 70g dark chocolate
  • 2 heaped teaspoons chia seeds (optional)
  • Cocktail sticks for dipping the coconut squares into the melted chocolate
  1. If you're using chia seeds, place them in a small bowl and stir in with the coconut milk. Leave for 10 minutes until the chia seeds are soft.
  2. Melt the coconut cream in a pan over a low heat (or in the microwave). Watch it closely - it will only take 2-3 minutes to melt and it can burn easily so check and stir it frequently.
  3. Mix the melted coconut cream, coconut milk (with or without chia seeds), dessicated coconut and coconut essence together in a large bowl.
  4. Place a sheet of greaseproof paper in a 20cm square baking tin (or a larger one and just use half of the tin). Spoon the coconut mixture into the tin and press all the way to the edges.
  5. Place in the fridge for at least an hour.
  6. Use a sharp knife to cut the coconut into 2-3cm squares and pierce each square with a cocktail stick.
  7. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water (or in the microwave but take it slowly - check and stir every 15-20 seconds).
  8. Holding the cocktail stick, coat each square thoroughly with chocolate.
  9. Place on sheet of greaseproof paper and leave to set.
  10. Gently ease out the cocktail sticks and store in the fridge in Tupperware. Eat within two weeks.
