Instructions

Base

  • Line a 8” x 8“ square baking pan with parchment paper, set aside.

  • Make topping whilst base is setting.

Chocolate Topping

  • Half fill a small pot with water and put over a medium heat.

  • Add coconut oil and melt down. Once completely melted, stir through maple syrup and cocoa powder until well combined and smooth.

  • Remove base from refrigerator and carefully pour chocolate over the top. Move the pan around to get an even layer of the chocolate or use a spatula.
