Recipe 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.

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.
