Chococco Fat Bombs
A delicious LCHF treat to try. Keeps well in the fridge and works great as a treat in a lunch box or for a get-together!
A word from Chef Craig: These Chococco Fat Bombs are silky smooth and are the perfect option for an LCHF treat.
A word from The Whole Food Dietitian, Caryn: For those of you that need that extra carb hit, particularly if you’re doing the type of exercise that requires added oomph for those high intensity moments, these “bombs” are for you. For the less active of us, these should still be considered sweet treats.
A word from The Fat Professor, Grant: These are a great treat to take out when you are training all day. Put in a zip lock bag and eat when you feel like it.

Cook time: 5 minutes
Carb count: 2.6g per bomb
- 1 cup (250ml) Cream
- ⅕ cup (50g) Butter
- ⅖ cup (100g) Coconut oil
- ⅘ cup (200g) 85% dark Chocolate, broken in pieces
- 1/3 cup (20g) desiccated coconut

In a pot add the cream, butter and coconut oil and slowly heat until it begins to bubble. Pour the hot mixture over the chocolate pieces and whisk vigorously to incorporate the ingredients are nicely mixed together.
Add to the mixture the desiccated coconut, mix well and set in a container or in individual moulds like an ice cube tray.
Chill the mix completely in the fridge before cutting into bite size pieces or roll into bite-sized balls.
