|A fun and healthy treat for 2012!|
1c Ghirardelli 60% cocoa (or darker) chocolate chips
1/4tsp coconut extract
1/4c coconut oil, melted
2tbs pure maple syrup
1. In a large glass container (or special ceramic candy cups my sister gave me) melt chocolate in the microwave at 1 minute intervals until melted (stir between each minute).

3. Meanwhile, stir together coconut oil, extract, and maple syrup in a separate bowl. Let cool to warm (but don't let it harden). When the candies have hardened take them out of the freezer and fill each with melted oil until almost full. Place back in the freezer for 10 minutes.
4. When the filling has hardened, take the molds back out of the freezer and paint the remaining chocolate on top, closing off the candies. Yup, once again stick them in the freezer for 10 minutes. When completely hard, take out and pop out of the molds gently. Let come to room temperature before serving. Enjoy!
