Overview

These raw white chocolate bars require tons of dried coconut and a food processor. Then freeze and you've got raw white chocolate!

Ingredients

Nutrition Facts

Directions

  • 1. Place dried, shredded coconut in food processor. Process for a couple of minutes. (It will seem like the coconut is too dry and you will want to add liquid. DON'T DO IT! Just keep processing. Eventually it will start to cling together and get oily-ish!)
  • 2. Once it starts to get quite moist, add all remaining ingredients and process again until almost similar in texture to wet oily peanut butter! Or hummus! You know, all wet! (Or perhaps not QUITE as wet as hummus or PB, a bit crumblier than that, but it should definitely be moist and not grainy at all.)
  • 3. Spoon your crazy white mixture into whatever molds/dish you want and PRESS DOWN FIRMLY WITH YOUR HANDS. (I don't have a lot of fancy cooking molds, so I just threw the mixture into a shallow glass dish and PRESSED IT DOWN FIRMLY with my hands.)
  • 4. Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes. (It will harden and turn into what you see in the pic.)
  • 5. YOU NOW HAVE RAW WHITE CHOCOLATE.  Store it in the freezer at all times. Don't eat too much or you'll get a chocolate headache lol.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Now, this recipe will confuse and confound you. Why? Because it is so easy and bizarre and the coconut transforms into "white chocolate" right in front of your eyes. In fact, you just have to try it to believe me! OK, so as you can see, I call it "white chocolate" even though it is mostly coconut. It does have a coconutty flavor, so do not be surprised about that, but to me it tastes more like white chocolate than like coconut. This raw white chocolate recipe is ridiculously sweet and heavy, so you can really only handle a nibble at a time.

A food processor is definitely required for this recipe. People, when I say that, you must listen to me. Stop blending when I tell you to processs, k? :) And vice versa. Said with love! Because I want you to succeed at this whole raw food thing!

I keep it in the freezer all the time. If you let it get warm, it will get all messy.

TIP: If you are one of those fancy people, you can use candy molds to make all different kinds of white chocolate candy, but all I did was press it into a dish and then cut/break into pieces once frozen. Because I am SO not fancy!

TIP: Leave a few tablespoons of the mixture in its unfrozen state and you can use the crumbly stuff for fun things, like crumbly sweet topping over chopped berries <drool>

CLARIFICATION: I took this picture with coconut oil in the background, but I did not use any coconut oil in this recipe. Sorry to confuse you. I was just uncooking up a storm yesterday and took a whole bunch of pictures at once.

hi! Made this and it really tastes good
but it seemed to take forever to blend in my food processor and not sure it was quite the right consistency but i was worried i would burn out my motor if i did it for any longer could I ask you what make of food processor you use as mine is quite basic and am looking to buy a better one
could i use my vitamix instead or would that not work properly

thanks

Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe! I haven't had white chocolate in 20 years...and this tastes almost exactly as I remember it (well, except with a hint of coconut..but what's wrong with a hint of coconut? Nothing, I say!!) I think i might add chopped almonds next time, just for fun :D

Amazing texture, soft and creamy like white chocolate! I was afraid I'd OVER processed it as when I processed with maple syrup it came out very 'slippy'. But after being in the freezer it's just perfect!
I'm tempted to add more vanilla next time!
Thanks :-)

I'm also having a problem getting this to break down far enough. I gave up after 20 minutes and put the crumbly mixture into forms and the freezer. I think a picture of what it's supposed to look like when it's done might be good. I'd processed it for so long that the processor was steaming o_O Still didn't look right.

Thanks!

This is delicious, didn't get very smooth, so texture reminded me of some sweet halava (or halva). Yum! Can't wait to see the video how to make it smooth. Or maybe it also depends on the coconut? I have no idea what it is but maybe coconut flour would work? Or would it be too dry?

Hi! I tried making this recipe and could not get the shredded coconut to turn into coconut butter. I had it in the food processor for a very long time but only small pieces formed together, and the rest was still crumbly. Any tips? Thanks so much!!

Holy cow(less)! I stumbled across your site and just made a batch of this and boy oh boy is it yummy! I LOVE coconut anything, and I've made coconut butter from dried coconut before, but I've never taken it to this level. This is a keeper. I have a recipe for raw chocolate chip cookies and I think I'm going to use some of this for the chips. Thank you!

Firstly thanks for great recipes and inspiration :)
Why do you say not to make this recipe in a blender? I tried it in a food processor and it just wasn't coming together so I added a bit of coconut oil. Still didn't want to go smooth so I ended up putting it in my Hi-blend and then I got a much better texture. I also added some cacao butter for a more chocolatey flavor :) just put it in the freezer. It was a bit if a mission but I'm sure it's going to be yum!
I also make brownies using my blender and they

Hi Raine,

I'm glad that it worked out well for you in your blender.

My general rule of thumb is to make liquid/wet items in the blender and dryer items in the FP. And I stick by my rule because it tends to work best for me :)

Hi S, Yes, you probably could keep things longer in the freezer - but I just put 2 weeks as a general guide because I know that once food has been in my freezer for 2 weeks + I tend to forget about it and get turned off because they seem old lol. Also, freezer burn can happen too after a while

Is it necessary to keep this in the freezer?. I make one similar with about 5 cups coconut , 1/2 cup honey and some vanilla,- which is the base. Then can add various flavours, a couple of tbs of lemon or orange juice, ground cardamom , a bit of beet root juice , rose water - whatever, even.... Cacao powder :-) BUT I've never kept it in the freezer. Is there a reason as opposed to the fridge? thanks

I have tried to make these three times now and they just aren't working out. I'm finding when I'm processing the coconut it just goes onto the sides and doesn't process into that oilyish consistency. Do you have any hints as to how to overcome this? I still make them but they are grainy and not at all smooth. They still taste great and my family loves them.

Hi  Tanyia, Interesting. Are you halving the recipe? (Don't do that)  It sounds like it isn't moving around properly in your food processor. Can you try doubling the recipe? Also, you may need to stop the recipe numerous times to redistribute the mixture so that it processes properly

I am not a raw foodist although I do eat raw probably eighty percent of the time. I have some other dietary restrictions I have to dance around, and one of the things I cannot eat is chocolate. I can't even use cocoa. Snacking is such a challenge, so I visit your site often for ideas. I've also directed folks from mine to yours. Anyway, I couldn't get the coconut smooth using either a food processor or a vitamix, but that didn't stop me. It got oily enough, and then with the added ingredients and freezing, it came together very nicely. It's just the great combination of taste and texture I've been looking for to satiate my snack cravings. You truly have a wonderful site!

Result - smooth and devine. I didn't weigh the 3 cups but think they would be over the 200gm minimum. My next attempt at these will be perfect!!! Thanks Rawtarian :-)

Hi all, if it's not happening within the first 10 minutes it's not going to happen!!  

One thing that might be needed is for you to stop and start quite a bit - and scrape the coconut around inside to ensure that it gets properly distributed.

Hi Desirae, It sounds like your food processor is not up to the task. (Or probably, your coconut is not the right type - it doesn't have enough oil in it perhaps). I'd say that you should avoid this recipe unless you try a different type of coconut.

My wife is putting up with my rawterian meals because she knows it is important for her health but I get these strange looks and she says things like "No, that does not sound appetizing but I'll eat it. Strawberrys are in season and I planned to make a raw chocolate covered strawberry recipe I found to make her smile. Now I can double punch with the white chocolate.
It's weird, having done so much with processors, etc., I know I can make your recipe before even trying because the recipe makes sense. I know some folks have had problems but HANG IN THERE! The more time you spend with processors, blenders, stick blenders, (You gotta get one for making mayo.) the better you will become at understanding and dealing with raw foods.

herm jacqi - i had the same problem. I used store bought (in a packet) desicated coconut and i whizzed for a good 10 minutes or so with not much change. it broke it down a bit but certainly didnt turn to butter.. :/ - i used a ninja, not sure and was the best blender. Each time i pulsed i had to scrape down the sides of my jug as it was just whizzing nothing most of the time and each time i removed the lid there was like a smoke (coconut maybe??) - didnt smell electrical, but i too was worried i was going to burn out my motor so gave in and added the vanilla bean paste and honey - but it was still quite 'floury and fluffy' when i put it into the freezer.... herm... think i stuffed up somewhere - or not used the right style of blender. any thoughts rawtarian?

I agree with Vlpanfried. I used fresh mature shredded coconut... Processed, and processed, and processed in the food processor and the constitution of the coconut barely changed! Why do you think? Nevertheless, I finished the recipe but it still tasted very "bitsy" and coconut-ey. I was hanging for chocolate!! :P

Just made this and it is scrumptious. I grew up with Milkybars in England and this brought back some great memories. Thank you so much for the recipe! You rock!!!

I also processed mine for awhile and it never got too moist. I just added in the other ingredients and processed. Turned out great! The kids loved it, too :)

(continued) . . . even though I felt like I didn't know what I was doing much of the time. Sorry this is so long; I just wanted to thank you, because I don't know if I would have made it without your wonderful website. I've shared it with so many friends, who are intrigued by our new lifestyle.

(continued) . . . needs. And choosing to start this just as all the summer produce was disappearing didn't help matters! But over and over again, recipes from your website would save the day. Now, we're breathing a sigh of relief as fresh produce is becoming more abundant, we're developing a larger repertoire of raw recipes our kids actually enjoy, and four weeks ago I gave birth to a healthy baby, who was my heaviest to date (9 lb 3 oz / 4.2 kg), proving to me that I did manage to get adequate nutrition, e

These are amazing! I made them as-is this time; next time I'm going to experiment with add-ins, perhaps finely chopped pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. I'm salivating! Thanks for all the amazing recipes you share! My husband and I just started this raw food adventure last fall. I was pregnant, and we had three kids, ages 5, 3, and 1 at the time. It was a super-steep learning curve for me, what with trying to find recipes the kids liked and trying to make sure I kept abreast of my own increased calorie n

Hi Karen,

Couldn't agree more! It's one thing to love something that took 2 hours to make, it's another thing to love something that took 5 to 10 minutes to make :)

Oh my....oh my oh my oh my. SO tasty!!!!
Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe! I haven't had white chocolate in 20 years...and this tastes almost exactly as I remember it (well, except with a hint of coconut..but what's wrong with a hint of coconut? Nothing, I say!!) I think i might add chopped almonds next time, just for fun :D

Hi Monica, I feel the same way!!! It's probably been about 4 or 5 years since I've had "real" white chocolate. I think it tastes the same too. Definitely has a coconut flavor too, but I am cool with that.

Some small chopped almonds would be REALLY good. Nice texture.

This is yummy but, despite processing for AGES, my coconut remained 'bitty'. Is it supposed to be totally smooth? I wonder if I need a better processer? (ker-ching!)
PS - I was SO tempted to put it in my Vitamix but, being a 'good girl', I followed instructions not to!

Hi Sarah,

It was probably the case because they needed to be processed quite a bit longer.

My food processor (I have this crappy little Black and Decker: http://tinyurl.com/avdwva4) isn't a good one at all, but I got it super smooth and non-bitty just by processing for quite a while.

PS: Good girl! :)

Hi. Can anyone tell me, can I use dessicated coconut instead? I find shredded hard to get except frozen. Thanks.

I've just put my first batch in the freezer, think I should have blended the coconut a little more than 2mins in my food processor, its not the best! Oh well, hopefully it'll work ;-)

It's funny that you should say, "People, when I say that, you must listen to me. Stop blending when I tell you to processs, k?" I made the delicioso raw brownies with the awesomely rich icing. I was too lazy to use both a blender AND a processor, so I made the icing with the processor. OmG...what a chocolate EXPLOSION I had. Once I got things under control, it was smooth sailing. Then, I cleaned the countertops and walls...lol
I'm not a raw foodists. I'm primarily vegan, with a great appreciation for more and more raw recipes. Your site basically has become my Raw Food Bible...Thanks for great recipes that don't involve so many obscure ingredients! Finally got my Excalibur--albeit only a four-tray--so I'm definitely ready to try the Buttery Zucchini Crackers...woo hoooo

I am so happy to see this recipe - I made some coconut butter by processing shredded coconut, and I'm not keen. Now I can add the extra ingredients, shape it and freeze it and have something I think I will like a whole lot better! Thank you, I am in love with your recipes :-)

Btw,artisan coconut butter tastes exactly like Raffaella candy in the jar.Perfect Nature.I guess it's easy to make white chocolate from coco butter too,just putting it in the mold.Or add cacao powder,etc.
