Melt the coconut if needed on low heat, add the cacao powder, agave, chia seeds, salt

Mix well. Pour into cupcake patties. I like to use silicone patties, so the chocolates just pop out easily and look just like a bought chocolate. Freeze. Store in freezer or refrigerator.
We'll be back next week with another fun and healthy recipe.

Happy cooking,
