DARK CHOCOLATE COCONUT CUPS

I´ve been thinking to make these delicious dark chocolate coconut cups for so long! I was thinking that they would be really difficult to make until last week I just bought some baking cups and decided which ones would be my favorite flavors. I went for dark chocolate and coconut. But I think dark chocolate with mint or with ginger would be as well really delicious – those will be the next ones for me to make 🙂

As I said these dark chocolate coconut cups are super easy to make, you just need to have the right proportion of liquids and solids, from there you can play with different flavors as you like.

The flavor of these dark chocolate coconut cups is super delicious and rich, I do love to have them with my black tea. The dark chocolate is melting really quick in your mouth, the flavor is really concentrated and the himalayan salt works amazingly well with the dark chocolate. The mix of dark chocolate with coconut is just the perfect mix of salty and sweet, but don´t think that the dark chocolate is really salty just a bit.

You can make them and leave them in the fridge for a good 4 days. They are delicious and beautiful, I think these dark chocolate coconut cups are perfect to share with some friends, family… with a nice cuppa or coffee.
