Coconut mascarpone dark chocolate bites

Creamy coconut bites in dark chocolate shells

You will need (makes 20 balls):
100 g mascarpone cheese
4 tbsp xylitol (birch)
200 g desiccated coconut
1 tsp coconut oil

100 g dark chocolate
          Montezuma's 73% Cocoa Very Dark Chocolate
2 heaped tbsp desiccated coconut

1. Whisk the mascarpone and the xylitol together. Add desiccated coconut and coconut oil. Work into a smooth paste.
2. From into 20 balls, size of a small walnut (use a tbsp to help you measure the amount of paste to get equal sized balls).
3. Place coconut balls onto a tray and put the tray into the refrigerator for 30 mins.
4. Melt half of the chocolate in a bowl placed over gently boiling water. When melted, take the bowl off the heat and add the remaining chocolate to the bowl. Stir gently to melt all together.
5. Take the coconut bites out and immerse each in the meted chocolate. Place chocolate balls onto a wire rack, let the chocolate cool for a few minutes, then sprinkle the tops with desiccated coconut.
6. Let the chocolate harden completely, then place the ball back to the refrigerator until ready to serve.
