These sugar free coconut cream filled candies are so tasty you would never know they were really healthy. They are made with a touch of Young Living Vitality Essential Oils. My favorite are the ones flavored with Vitality Orange essential oil. So yummy and guilt free snacking.


4 ounces cream cheese
4 Tbs butter
1 cup natural sugar substitute (I used a half Monk Fruit and half Swerve)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
Several drops Young Living Vitality Essential Oils: Orange, Tangerine, Lemon, Lime, Peppermint or other.


Chocolate Coating:
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup food grade cocoa butter
6 Tablespoons natural sugar substitute (I used powered Swerve)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a large bowl, stir together cream cheese, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Mix in the shredded coconut.
Using about one tablespoon of coconut mixture each, form into a log and set onto a parchment paper or silicon mat lined baking sheet.


Put bars into freezer while making chocolate coating.




In a double boiler, melt cocoa butter and stir in cocoa powder. Once the cocoa butter is melted and the chocolate mixed in, remove from heat and add sweeteners. Add vanilla extract. Mix well until smooth.


Remove the coconut bars from the freezer.
Place each coconut bar on a fork and dip bottom into melted chocolate. Then use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over top and sides until bar is completely covered in chocolate. Let excess chocolate drip off bottom of fork, then set on non-stick sheet to harden.
Repeat steps until each bar is covered in chocolate.
Place finished sheets of candy in refrigerator.
Let sit at least an hour then remove and place in covered container. Store in refrigerator.

Getting ready to go to Young Living Convention and then onward for our summer vacation. Traveling and sleeping in hotels is usually a challenge for me. I sleep better in my own bed. I guess it is partly the excitement of travel, new things learned at the Young Living Convention and a bed I am not used to. I have a hard time getting settled down for a good night’s sleep.
