Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bar (page 163)

1/3 cup cocoa powder (heaping)
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/3-1/2 cup trail mix

Melt coconut oil using a double boiler or solar oven. If you’re careful not to overheat the oil, you can also melt it directly on the stove or in the microwave.


Combine the cocoa powder and the powdered sugar in a mixing bowl. If your coconut oil isn’t already a liquid, take care of that now. Stir in the coconut oil. Add trail mix. Pour the mixture into a mold. This will make a standard chunky chocolate bar.

To make fruit & nut chocolate clusters, increase the amount to a cup of trail mix and dip out spoonfuls onto wax paper. It will hold together better if you allow it to cool slightly before spooning it out.

Here are some alternative ingredients to go in or on your chunky chocolate bars. Mix and match as appropriate:

  • Banana chips (sweet or salty)
  • Coarse salt
  • Fruits (dried/freeze-dried)
  • Nuts & Seeds (chopped
  • Puffed rice
  • Toasted coconut
  • Toasted oats
  • Wasabi peanuts
  • Candied flowers
  • Candied ginger
  • Candied nuts (page 167)
  • Candy cane (blended)
