- 1 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- Optional toppings: crushed nuts, shredded coconut, dried fruit
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the vegan dark chocolate chips and coconut oil. Heat in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until the chocolate chips and coconut oil have melted and combined smoothly.
- Add the pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt to the melted chocolate mixture. Stir well until all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.
- Line a baking pan or dish with parchment paper. Pour the chocolate mixture into the pan and spread it evenly using a spatula.
- If desired, sprinkle your favorite toppings over the chocolate mixture. Crushed nuts, shredded coconut, or dried fruit work wonderfully with this recipe.
- Place the pan in the refrigerator and let it chill for at least 2 hours, or until the chocolate has completely solidified.
- Once the chocolate has hardened, remove it from the refrigerator. Use a sharp knife to cut it into bite-sized squares or break it into irregular pieces.
- Serve and enjoy! Store any remaining vegan chocolate in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
