Homemade Cherry Chocolates

Homemade Cherry Chocolates



  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1 heaping tsp tapioca starch
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 30 cherries


  1. In a pot over medium heat, melt cocoa, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and starch.
  2. Once melted, take off stove and with a spoon dunk cherries into chocolate to cover cherry.
  3. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and put in fridge to solidify. Once hard, keep in a sealed glass container in the fridge (if they last that long!).
  4. I also like to make larger chocolates with nuts and coconut. I take my silicon muffin cups and put a few pecans and shredded coconut in the bottom and pour melted chocolate over top and put in fridge.
