Here is a scrumptious combination of chocolate and coconut fudge topped with toasted coconut flakes.
These rich and moist coconut fudge bars are made of four different forms of deliciously healthy coconut: shredded coconut, coconut oil, coconut milk and coconut butter. To add additional smoothness and flavor I added ⅓ cup of good healthy cacao butter.
The chocolate fudge layer is by itself to die for!
You won't be disappointed when you make this!
