Course: Dessert
Servings: 10


  • 300 g slivered almonds -toasted
  • 200 g shredded coconut (2 cups) toasted
  • 100 g almond meal (1 cup) or hazelnut meal

Raw chocolate

  • 200 g cacao butter (1 cup) or raw, extra virgin coconut oil (or a combination of 100 gram of each), melted
  • 30 g cacao (⅓ cup) unsweetened Dutch process or raw
  • 2-6 tbsp rice malt syrup, honey or maple syrup (you can adjust the sweetness to your taste)


  • Toast your slivered almonds and coconut.
  • Melt the cacao butter or coconut oil over a very low heat, either in a small pot or Thermomix (temp 50, speed 1) until just melted.
  • Add the cacao powder and rice syrup, mix until well combined and the syrup is dissolved.
  • Combine the slivered almonds, coconut, and nut meal in a bowl. Add the raw chocolate and stir until well combined.
  • If you would like a darker nest, add a tablespoon or two more cacao.
  • Line a muffin tin and press one tablespoon of the mix into the base.  Add another tablespoon (approx.) and press into the sides to make a small basket.
  • Place in the freezer immediately to set.  Once set, remove the muffin casing and keep in an airtight container in the freezer until ready to serve.


  • filled with small chocolate easter eggs
  • filled with double cream or cashew nut cream and berries for an Easter dessert (my plan for Easter Sunday dessert)
  • make an easy berry coulis by pureeing any red berry with a tablespoon of water or cream (or your favorite liquor for an adults version). Push it through a sieve to remove the seeds



Replace the almonds with more shredded coconut or toasted sunflower seeds and the meal with desiccated coconut.


Choose rice malt syrup as your sweetener

Feeling lazy

You can sub the raw chocolate with a good quality dark chocolate (I love Green and Blacks) melted. You can omit the almond meal if using regular chocolate.
