Gotta Chop Hummus

Dark Chocolate Bark with Coconut and Pecans


It was a beautiful stormy day here in Florida today.   I love listening to the distant thunder and watching the storm clouds roll in.  Since I would be inside today I thought why don’t I try out a new recipe.  I found an organic 85% cacao bar in the pantry, so I thought I would make some dark chocolate bark.  I melted my cacao bar in a bowl and added some finely shredded unsweetened coconut and some ground up pecans from the fridge.  I then spread the mixture thinly on some parchment paper and dusted the top with a little more coconut and pecans.  I placed the parchment paper on a plate for stability and put it in the fridge to cool until hardened.  When the bark  chilled and was hard enough I broke it into pieces and put in a small glass bowl…so cute and yummy.  I think next time I will add a little coconut sugar to sweeten it up a bit, 85% cacao can be kinda bitter.  When picking out your cacao bar be sure to read the label, almost every bar I looked at in the store contained soy, or soy lecithin!
