Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almonds chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips or milk chocolate, if that's what you prefer
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Set aside.
  • Add the almonds to a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  • Pour the almonds onto the prepared pan, add the coconut, sprinkle on the cinnamon and mix to combine.
  • Bake for 5 minutes, stir, then bake another 3 minutes, repeating until golden (took about 10 minutes total for me)
  • In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips (I like to use Ghirardelli baking chips) and coconut oil. Microwave for 1 minute, stir, then continue microwaving in 30 second intervals until smooth.
  • Pour in the toasted coconut and almonds.
  • Pour into the silicone heart molds.
  • Let set in the fridge then pop out of the mold and enjoy!

Notes

Amount of hearts will vary based on the size of your heart mold. Mine made about 20.
