Coconut Cherry and Chocolate Squares

coconut cherry

This coconut cherry treat has a brownie like moist feel to it and is lovely slices of coconut goodness with no baking either!  The beauty of coconut for me is that it is a sweet treat…add some cherries and cocoa powder for a chocolate taste and I am purring like a warm, well fed kitten!


I made a truly decadent version of this with a chocolate ganach spread on top….this did not last long enough to take a picture of.   An excuse to do it again I think!   You could use other berries or nuts in this dish, have a play around with your favourite flavours!

INGREDIENTS

2 cups desiccated coconut

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 cup cherries (destoned)

1 tspn cinnamon

1/4 cup honey

1 tspn vanilla extract

1/4 tspn salt

coconut cherry

METHOD

  • Place the coconut in a food processor and blitz until it becomes a soft liquid form.
  • Remove and put into a mixing bowl, adding all of the other ingredients.  Mix well.
  • Pour into a baking dish or tupperware dish and smooth out until even.
  • Chill in the refrigerator to firm for 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Cut into squares, eat and enjoy!
