Why Organic

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Cups

Recipe by MimiDifficulty: Easy



This recipe for Dark Chocolate Coconut Cups is naturally vegan and it only has 4 ingredients. This delicious bite sized candy is a fun no bake treat.


  • 510 grams (3 cups) organic mini dark chocolate chips

  • 85 grams (1 cup) organic unsweetened fine shredded coconut

  • 71 grams (1/2 cup) organic powdered sugar

  • 2.7 ounces organic coconut cream

  • Organic unsweetened fine shredded coconut, for topping


  • Line a mini cupcake pan with liners.
  • Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Alternatively, you can use a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, so you don’t burn the chocolate. Transfer the chocolate to a pyrex measuring cup with a spout.
  • Fill the cupcake liners one third with chocolate. Place the tray in the freezer to harden the chocolate.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the fine shredded coconut, powdered sugar, and coconut cream. Mix on low until combined. Transfer to a piping bag.
  • Remove the tray from the freezer, ensure that the chocolate is hardened. Pipe a dollop of filling into each cup into the middle, careful not to get filing on the sides.
  • Fill the cups with the remaining chocolate to cover the filling and the sides.
  • Sprinkle with more coconut on top. Place back in the freezer to harden.
  • Store coconut cups in the fridge or in the freezer.


  • High Altitude – Follow the recipe as noted.
