1 cup ground or shredded coconut (unsweetened)
3 tablespoons good quality cocoa powder
1 tablespoon sour cherry concentrate, such as Eden Organic
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until thoroughly combined. Press the mixture into silicone ice cube trays or into a small loaf pan. Press down firmly to make sure the candy sticks together. Chill until firm, at least one hour. If using a loaf pan cut into small squares. Store candy in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up at a week.
