Ok, I have to admit it, some times I’m a little dense. When recipes say coconut oil, does it need to be melted and then measured or amount without melting. Sorry, new at this lol I definately can not wait to try these!!
Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says
Good question. I will always state if it is melted. So in this case it is not melted, so just scoop it out of your container and measure.
Hi Halle, do you think adding a 1/2 cup of dessicated coconut to the centres of these yummy treats might work???
@delkelly Hey @delkelly ,
The coconut oil kind of binds the ingredients together and I am afraid that the coconut would not. I think it would be fine to add a little coconut to the coconut oil however.
Thanks Halle, I was thinking rather along the lines of adding dessicated coconut to the recipe, not substituting the oil. @hallecottis @delkelly
Thanks for linking this the other day. I made them today, and they’re great! I had some trouble with the chocolate though. As soon as I took it off the stove, it clumped up and turned into a huge mess. I tried it again and then just quickly spooned it on top of the coconut oil part, which of course was slippery and just slid off. They look awful, lol. Frustrating, but the end result is really good!

It clumped up because water got into it or it was burnt. Chocolate must always be heated in a double burner and necer heat above 37C for dark chocolate.
These were excellent thank you! I looked at many recipes and yours had the just the ingredients I was looking for. My mint extract was homemade so I needed to up it a tad and love the results! With all this Halloween candy floating around I had to make something I felt okay about eating!!
Checked out the recipe, and am wondering if adding flaked unsweetened coconut to the patties would work?
