This is a great recipe! As I started making this, I realized it was a bit lacking in directions. After trying to mix the ingredients and having it very lumpy, I put my stove on the lowest possible setting and barely warmed the mixture for two minutes or so. I did not want the coconut oil to completely liquefy. It was just enough to turn the mixture into this silky smooth texture. I put the chocolate into silicone muffin pans like others suggested and then added different toppings to several of them. Slivered almonds, crushed hazelnuts, macadamia nuts (salted for that yummy sweet-salty combo!), coconut /chocolate chips and white chocolate/ raspberry chips. What an easy way to serve an assortment for guests. Next time I'll try cranraisins and raisins. Thanks for a great recipe!

So yummy! The first time I made this, I heated the oil on the stove then added the other ingredients. After stirring for a little bit, the oil actually separated from the maple chocolate. I made this again tonight, and instead put the jars of hardened oil and syrup in a warm-hot water bath in my sink for about an hour to melt. It turned out perfectly!

Five-star chocolate from a non-maple syrup lover. The flavor of this chocolate does not even hint of maple (a plus for me) but instead is rich and delicious. It is not sweet, more like a 75% cacao chocolate bar. I used a silicone mini-muffin mould to shape them. I made a half batch resulting in 10 pieces weighing 27 grams each. After a while in the fridge they harden enough to remove and eat like a chocolate treat or roll into a ball and dust with more cocoa powder like a truffle. Melt in some warm almond milk or freeze. Really, just a great recipe with endless options for use. Thank you for this recipe.

Directions incomplete and it doesn't tell how many servings. I like the tiny muffin size in the picture, but from past experience I know pictures can be deceiving(ex: cooking shows ingredients in custard cups). Looks easy to try but I wonder if it sticks to the pan? Need help to try.

This is an awesome recipe. I changed a little though: 2/3 cup of maple syrup 1/3 cup of coconut oil 1 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened) Hope you enjoy!

This is undoubtedly the most decadent chocolate dessert I have ever had. A little more instruction would have been good. I consider myself "kitchen savvy". I was a little lost after mixing the ingredients together. I put it in a muffin tin and popped it in the fridge. I feel there could be a ton of possibilities for this dessert. Great recipe and SO easy. Thank you so much.

Yummy! Heated the coconut oil slightly, in the microwave, so it would mix easier. Taste test "Excellent". Added some sliced almonds, just because. Put in a muffin tin to cool. Will absolutely make again.

I wish I m elted the coconut oil first because it was hard to mix when it was raw and trying to get the chunks mixed was a pain. Tasted amazing though!

I melted the coconut oil in the microwave until it was half liquid and stirred until the rest melted then mixed it into the other 2 ingredients and it came together smoothly. Poured into mini-muffin tins lined with paper cups and popped into the freezer to firm up. I've added in chopped dried cherries or apricots, walnuts, slivered almonds or cashews, and unsweetened coconut flakes. Have also topped with the barest sprinkling of sea salt. Really versatile, really easy and gives me my chocolate fix.
