These coconut butter fingers are a decadent treat that can be made ahead when entertaining, or as keto-friendly fat bombs.
Coconut butter is just like other nut butters — it is made from the finely ground up meat of the coconut. It’s a firm butter, so warm it gently until it can be stirred. I use Artisana Organics brand.
You’ll need a silicone candy or ice-cube mould with the ‘stick’ shape to make the fingers. I found mine at Ikea, but here’s another example. My mould makes 6 fingers, of 1.5 tbsp volume each.
Here’s how the fingers look when you pop them out of the moulds.
Finally, a word about chocolate. You can make your own chocolate coating by melting unsweetened baker’s chocolate and sweetening with stevia but I don’t recommend it unless you’re experienced with chocolate-melting and tempering. Overheating or adding liquid stevia will easily cause the chocolate to seize. Instead, I suggest having a professional chocolatier make the chocolate for you. In other words, use your favourite high-quality, ready-made, extra-dark chocolate! Just Us! and Hu (both 70%) are good choices for their fabulous craftsmanship and ingredient lists, or, if you’re keto and every carb counts, you might prefer Lindt 85% or 90% for example.
