Serves 3 or 4 medium ice pops

Sweetness 2/3
Difficulty 1/3

1 cup canned coconut milk
1/2 cup organic maple syrup
generous 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Melt chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat. Make sure water doesn't come in contact with it, and use a rubber spatula to stir constantly so it doesn't burn. When melted, add the coconut milk, and maple syrup and stir to mix.

Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl. Using a small measuring cup, pour the mixture into the ice pop molds, being careful not to burn yourself. Put in the freezer for at least four hours, or overnight.

When frozen, you can run the tip of each mold under lukewarm water to loosen without breaking.

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MACAROONS

lookbook cookbook double chocolate macaroons

Five ingredient macaroons! With extra chocolate of course...

Makes 12


Sweetness 2/3

Difficulty 1/3

1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup organic cacao powder
1/4 coconut or agave nectar
1/3 cup organic dark chocolate
1/2 tablespoon extra vigin coconut oil

Add the coconut, 1/4 cup oil, cacao and agave to a large bowl and mix well with a rubber spatula.

Line a large plate with parchment paper. Take 2" pieces of dough and place it on the paper. Gently pat each one with your fingertips to make sure the dough is shaped nicely. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes.

Just before you take the dough out of the freezer, begin making the chocolate coating. Melt the dark chocolate and 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil in a saucepan over medium low heat. Make sure water does not come in contact with the chocolate or your utensils or it will spoil. Stir constantly with a rubber spatula to make sure it doesn't stick to the pan. Remove from heat when melted and pour in a small bowl.

Remove the macaroons from the freezer. Gently take each one and generously dip the base in the chocolate sauce. Allow to cool for a few seconds before putting back on the plate. Repeat for each macaroon. If there is leftover chocolate sauce, you can pour a little on the top of each macaroon. Put back in the freezer for another 30 minutes. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
