I love making my own chocolates to snack on of a night time (sitting watching Netflix and sipping on tea – let’s keep it real). So when I had a punnet of blueberries that needed using inspiration struck! First off I just added in the blueberries and roast macadamia nuts – a delicious simple combination, but then my sisters suggested desiccated coconut. Let’s just thank her now, it took this recipe to a whole new level! So what are you waiting for, make a batch, make a tea and take time for yourself –  it’s the perfect excuse!

Prep TIME: 15mins + overnight

To begin, roast the macadamia nuts. Spread the nuts out on a baking tray and place in the oven on high for 5-10mins. Be careful, as macadamia nuts are high in fat, they will burn quickly.

Meanwhile mix the coconut oil, rice malt syrup and cacao in a bowl until smooth. Then mix in macadamia nuts, blueberries and coconut. Use two spoons to create little clusters of the mixture on a lined baking tray. Chill in the fridge for 4hours.
