Chocolate Coconut Bark

Before you rush out and grab the ingredients for this recipe, thinking you will be eating these delectable treats every night or every time you have that sweet tooth, beware:
This recipe - although a better alternative to purchased chocolate bars or cookies - contains nearly 1250 calories!  Moderation is key with these.

3-4 Tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup organic cocoa
1/2 cups ground nuts (macadamia, almonds, hazelnuts)
3/4 cups dried unsweetened shredded coconut (I like to toast in oven first)
1 Tbsp honey (optional - I use dates as well)

In a microwave, melt coconut oil.
Add cocoa, nuts and shredded coconuts and mix well.
Form into a square by dumping into a small baking sheet and spread to about a 1/4" thickness.
Refrigerate or freeze until hard.
Break off into desired pieces.

(You're welcome)
