What is Your Favorite way to make Coconut Bark

Tried making this yesterday, just was so, so

I do not like anything spicey hot so would appreciate any suggestions. I understand one does not have to count the calories in coconut oil, is that correct

I need more food that has zero calories

Here's a link with a few recipes.

Chocolate CO Bark Recipes

I responded to you in another thread re: counting the calories in CO. Some have to, and some don't. The only way to know for sure if you need to count, is to try it both ways and see how you do.

I experimented for a week and stalled, but there are others who lose much better with the CO and don't have to count the calories. Good luck!

4 T CO to 1T high quality dark cocoa, liquid Splenda to taste.
Crush some almonds, macadamia nuts, pistachios into small pieces and sprinkle on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Sometimes I add unsweetened coconut as well.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the nuts and finish with a healthy sprinkle of sea salt. It takes about a cup of CO to do a whole cookie sheet. Freeze to set and break into pieces and keep in a plastic container in the freezer. Thinner pieces make a delicious treat. If you get it too thick it loses something IMHO.

I've made quite a few different ones and they're all yummy. This is my concoction.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark

4T coconut oil (regular or virgin for a coconut taste)
1T unsweetened cocoa
1T natural peanut butter
1/2 - 1 scoop protein powder (helps firm it up a little and makes it fudgier)
Mixture of sweeteners to taste (Splenda, Truvia, Stevia, Erythritol)
Splash of heavy whipping cream

*Disclaimer : I measure the oil, cocoa, and peanut butter. After that, I just add things to taste and to texture.

The one I use most often is 35 calories (NOT counting the CO):
1 T CO
1 tsp raw cacao
1 T PB2
1/2 tsp coconut sugar

I have a silicone muffin pan that I just dump the ingredients into each cup, stir well, freeze, then pop out and wrap with saran then put all into a baggie in the fridge.

I also make it with real PB instead of the PB2 and up the sugar to a full tsp. I save those for UDs.

This isn't bark, but I've been looking for a place to post something I made the other day... It's not low-carb and it's not DD friendly, but I want to write it down somewhere before I forget!

Basically, I was going for a fudge-like texture.
And I wanted to experiment with making a caramel sauce out of coconut sugar.

(sorry, amounts not exact)

Melt about 1/2 cup of coconut sugar in a non-stick skillet, over med heat, with 1-2 tbsp water.
Stir and cook for a couple minutes.
Don't overcook or overheat; scorched sugar becomes very bland.

Add a hunk of ghee...maybe about 1/4 cup. Stir.
(Sugar & butter remained separate at this point.)
Pour in some cream (most recipes call for heavy, but I used light) & continue stirring.
The cream will cause the sugar & butter to "come together".

I put aside about 1/2 of this for use as a sauce.

To the rest I added cocoa powder and a hunk of coconut butter.
Spread in the bottom of a flat container & chill. Cut into squares like fudge.

I also added a pinch of salt, and a little vanilla and cinnamon (Ceylon) for flavor.
