Cherry and chocolate — I’m in love. You won’t be able to keep your hands off these babies, made with a combination of dried cherries, coconut, cacao powder and creamy nut butter, then coated in homemade chocolate. A densely satisfying sweet and sour sensation, perfect for when you get that chocolate craving.


Ingredients (makes 12 )

  • 125 g dried cherries
  • 60 ml melted coconut oil
  • 360 g desiccated coconut
  • ⅛ teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons macadamia or almond butter
  • 45 ml rice malt syrup
  • Chocolate coating
  • 375 ml melted coconut oil
  • 175 g raw cacao powder
  • 185 ml maple syrup

Method

  1. Place the dried cherries in a food processor and reduce to a paste. Add the coconut oil and coconut and pulse until combined. Add the salt, vanilla, cacao powder, nut butter and rice malt syrup and process until the mixture sticks together.
  2. Line a rectangular baking tin, measuring about 34 x 23 cm and 5 cm deep, with baking paper. Press the mixture into the tin and freeze for up to 1 hour.
  3. Whisk the chocolate coating ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. Place a sheet of baking paper on the kitchen bench, then set a wire baking rack on top. Remove the baking tin from the freezer and cut the cherry mixture into bite-sized pieces.
  5. Dip each piece in the chocolate and place on the wire rack to allow the excess chocolate to drain off. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. The cherry bites will keep for 2–3 weeks.

Notes... TIP: You can replace the nut butter with seed butter to make this recipe nut-allergy friendly.

  • Nice recipe with some beautiful ingredients. Personally I would precer to use yacon syrup instead of rice malt and maple syrup.
