  1. In a small pot over low heat, melt the coconut oil. Stir in the cacao powder, maple syrup, and vanilla. It should be slightly thicker than traditional chocolate syrup - almost like fudge sauce.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the chocolate into a loose rectangle. Sprinkle with your desired toppings and pop in the freezer for 30 minutes until completely set.

  3. Break apart into small pieces and store in an airtight jar or container in the freezer.
