  • Author:


  • 1 cup (111 g) cocoa powder, Dutched
  • ¾ cup (160g) virgin coconut oil, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup So Delicious® Original Culinary Coconut Milk, shaken (not lite)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (125 g) sifted confectioner’s sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt


For this recipe, you will need a double boiler or a chocolate melting pot which will slowly heat the chocolate without burning it. I also find that a food processor works best to integrate the ingredients.

Start by combining the cocoa powder with the coconut oil in a large food processor or mixer. Mix until a paste is formed and there are no chunks of coconut oil remaining.

Transfer to the double boiler or chocolate melting pot and heat over medium heat while stirring until thinner and smooth. Do not let the mixture boil.

Return the mixture to the food processor or mixing bowl and mix while adding the So Delicious® Culinary Coconut Milk, vanilla extract, sugar and salt. Process until totally smooth like warm fudge.

To make chocolate bars, transfer to an 8×8 baking pan (or smaller pan for thicker chocolate bars; bigger pan for thinner ones) lined with parchment or foil and smooth the top. Place in the freezer until set. The chocolate does not need to remain frozen once set, but if it is very warm outside, it will start to get softer (as chocolate does!).

To make chocolate bark, follow this chocolate bark recipe, using your homemade coconut milk chocolate.

  1. Is this the reg Coconut milk .. by SO delicious ? Wouldnt the candy spoil w the milk in it ?? Would it have to be kept refrigerated?

    • I like refrigerating it to keep it harder, but there’s no dairy in it to spoil. I used canned coconut milk. Hope that helps!

  2. Just made this and it’s AMAZING. So good. I used coconut sugar instead of regular powdered sugar (I put it in the blender to make it powdered. Obviously not a professional but we’re in a polar vortex haha).
    So good, thanks so much for sharing! Soft even right out of the freezer, I’m going to make a chocolate chip quick read with chunks of it if I don’t eat it all before then 🙂

    • MMM that sounds like an amazing way to use this delicious chocolate! So glad you loved the recipe. Stay warm in that polar vortex … and eat more chocolate!!!
