We would like to thank our dear friend Mary Patoula for creating this different version of my recipes!
- Heat a pan over high heat until it gets very hot. Add all of the ingredients to the pan apart from the chocolate.
- Cook for 4-5 minutes while stirring continuously until all of the ingredients come together to form a paste and the coconut can release its aroma. Set aside.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Put in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 1 minute at 700 watts. You can also use a water bath.
- Use a 12 cup muffin pan. Line each cup with a cupcake liner.
- Use a spoon to pour some of the melted chocolate in each cup. Press chocolate so it can spread nicely along the bottom and sides of the cup.
- Refrigerate for 10 minutes to chill.
- Divide the carrot-coconut paste among the 12 cups. Pour some melted chocolate over the filling to cover it.
- Sprinkle with some extra grated coconut.
- Refrigerate again until completely chilled.
- When chilled the chocolate will harden and you can easily remove them from the cups and they are ready to be served and enjoyed!
