White Chocolate Coconut Nests... Vegan, Keto, Low-Carb, Sugar-Free
Say hello to my little white chocolate nests made with toasted coconut. These little babies are vegan and keto-friendly and delicious.
I am a white chocolate lover, I was always that weird kid at easter who WANTED the white chocolate bunny. I remember watching everyone’s face drop as they peeled back that foil to reveal a paler bunny instead of the expected chocolate brown.
Not me though! Anyway white chocolate is now a regular in my kitchen since I figured out how to make a sugar-free version (which took many goes).
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Setting Time: 1 hour
2 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup coconut butter
1/2 cup cacao butter
1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
Liquid stevia to taste
Preheat the oven to 180ºC and spread coconut onto a tray. Toast on the oven for 5–10 minutes. Watch carefully as it burns easily! Give it a shuffle about halfway through.
Melt the cacao butter in a double boiler. Remove from the heat and stir in the coconut butter until combined. Stir in the stevia and vanilla.
Combine the chocolate mixture with the toasted coconut and toss to coat. Spoon into moulds – I use silicone but you can use a regular mini muffin tin lined with muffin cases too.
Evenly pour over any extra chocolate mixture, and using your hands or a small spoon, make a well in the centre by pushing the coconut out to the sides.
Set in the fridge or freezer and store in the fridge.
