Made with honey and unsweetened chocolate and cocoa so that they are acceptable on gut-healing diets such as GAPS (learn more here), these little chewy hearts are perfect for gifts and sweet cravings! I gave these to a friend a few months ago and she’s been asking for the recipe ever sense.
They use ingredients commonly found in your grocery store – so you can make them with short notice!
Chewy GAPS Chocolate Hearts
1/4 cup honey (buy here)
1/4 cup coconut oil (buy here)
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate (buy here)
1/4 cup cocoa powder (buy here)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt (buy here)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (buy here)
In a small saucepan, heat honey over medium heat until it boils. Boil, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. This will help your hearts to keep their shape and be chewy.
Remove honey from heat and stir in coconut oil and add in unsweetened chocolate. Allow to melt for 5 minutes, turning the mixture back over med-low heat for 5 minutes if needed to melt the chocolate.
Once chocolate is melted, stir in cocoa powder, salt, and cinnamon. Continue stirring with a whisk or fork until no more lumps remain. Pour into candy mold (I used this one) or pour over parchment paper to break into chunks later. Allow to cool on the counter, then move to the fridge to continue firming up, 1-2 hours.
Store in the fridge in a lidded container. These do not travel well, but they are a great treat for home!

I made this today. I had to put some more honey in it. I guess I didn’t get it quite right. I sure like the idea and I can’t wait to taste it tonight! Thank you for posting it!
Why not just use coconut oil and Cacoa powder? These two ingredients with a pinch of salt, cinnamon or cayenne make a wonderful bark.
I made these but the honey never mixed with the oil. I think the 5 minutes of boiling the honey cooked it too long. What are we looking for when cooking the honey? When do we stop…5 minutes was too long for me….It turned a darker color and solidified too much. Tasty stuff but not but then I had a layer of liquid that was oil, some cocao powder and chocolate.
