Toasted coconut & almond chocolate

Wednesday, October 17, 2012


200gms 85% Lindt
100gms 70% Old Gold
(you can use any brand, I just try and keep the percentages high so that it's richer and I eat less ;))
150gms Butter or Coconut Oil
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
100gms Sliced Almonds
100gms Coconut chips

Prep work: Preheat your oven to grill 200C, Line a dish with parchment paper.


Melt your butter or coconut oil, once melted then take off the heat and add in the chocolate, this will ensure you don't cook the chocolate and then you will have a melt in your mouth consistency. Add 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Put your almonds onto a baking sheet and place under the grill to toast, watch it very carefully as they will burn, check constantly and turn to ensure most of the almonds get toasted.  Do not burn or it will ruin the chocolate.  Next do the coconut, you need to watch the coconut even more or you will burn it, coconut has a very high fat content and will toast much faster than the almonds.  This will get your house smelling amazing too I might add! This can also be done in a non stick frying pan but I find it is easier to mess it up plus you don't always get an even toasting.

Add your toasted almond & coconut to the chocolate mixture and then pour into your lined dish, pop in the fridge for several hours and then cut when it's nearly set, place back in the fridge and then break it up and put into a container and store in the fridge. 


  1. Is Old Gold another kind of chocolate? I need to change this from metric, but I want to make it for a shower/party I am having on Sunday! Looks fabulous! Thanks!

    1. Hi Suzanne, old gold is just a brand, it's a New Zealand chocolate called Cadbury old gold 70%, you could use any 70% though :) I hope you enjoy it!
