Line a square baking tray with grease-proof paper.
Place the desiccated coconut, maple syrup, vanilla extract, melted coconut oil and salt into a large mixing bowl, and using a wooden spoon, mix until fully combined.
Create a banmarie, and melt the chocolate until silky smooth!
Carefully pour the chocolate over the coconut base.
Using a spatula, smooth the chocolate over the base and sprinkle some coconut over the top for decoration & texture!
Pop the tray back into the freezer for approximately 1 hour to set.
Once set, remove the tray from the freezer and slice into your desired squares/bars.
Serve & enjoy!
I served my bars with an extra sprinkle of desiccated coconut and some coconut chunks.
Store in a sealed container in the freezer and allow to rest at room temperature for 5 minutes minutes before enjoying!
