Cherry Ripe Bites
- 2 ½ cups desiccated coconut
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons coconut cream
- 2 tbsp Love Your Gut Powder
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 cup cherries, pitted, frozen
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp cacao butter
- 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 2 TBS maple syrup
- In a food processor, pulse coconut, coconut oil, coconut cream, Love Your Gut Powder, and maple syrup until combined. Be careful not to over mix. Add in the frozen cherries and pulse until combined.
- Using your hands, scoop up about 2 tablespoons worth of mixture, shape into a round shape, and place on a tray. Repeat until you use up all of the mixture. Place in the freezer to set for 2 hours.
- After about 1 ½ hours, prepare the chocolate coating by melting ingredients together in a small pot over low heat. Transfer to a bowl, place in the fridge for 15 minutes to let it thicken slightly.
- To cover in chocolate coating, first prepare a rack over a tray to catch any dripping chocolate. Carefully dip the bites in the chocolate coating mixture and place on the rack. Note: You want to work quickly here to prevent them from melting. This is why it’s important your chocolate mixture isn’t too hot but is still melted and has a liquid consistency. You may wish to work in batches. Place back into the freezer as soon as possible to set the chocolate.
- Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
