Moist Dark Chocolate Coconut Candy Bites

Moist Dark Chocolate Coconut Candy Bites
Serves: 18

2 cups organic coconut
4 tablespoons raw honey
5 tablespoons  organic coconut oil
1 teaspoon  organic vanilla
4 ounces organic dark chocolate (melted)

  1. Pulse the coconut in a blender or food processor until the texture becomes like thick flour. Transfer to a bowl and add the honey, coconut oil, and vanilla. Stir until a thick paste forms.
  2. Using your hands, squeeze the mixture into small balls. Place the coconut balls in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until firm. 
  3. Melt the chocolate slowly and gently until smooth and spreadable. 
  4. Lay out a sheet of  parchment paper. Roll each coconut ball in the chocolate until completely covered. Scoop the ball out with a spoon and let the extra chocolate drizzle off. Place the chocolate covered ball on parchment paper and chill until the chocolate has hardened. Store in the refrigerator.

**It's very important to use coconut oil because other oils won't harden like coconut oil, and that hardening is what holds the shape together.
