"Skinny" Chocolate Walnut Bark

I recently discovered a book titled "Trim Healthy Mama" This recipe is the author's form of chocolate that you can enjoy while learning a life long style of eating. Can you tell I'm desperately avoiding the word "diet"! With it's base being Coconut Oil, this chocolate has many benefits for your body and allows you to create several different versions to keep your taste buds and chocolate cravings satisfied.
2 TBSP Truvia (a stevia sweetener blend)
1/2 cup warmed coconut oil (I use the extra virgin/flavorless one)
1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa
pinch of sea salt
Whisk all ingredients together and pour into a parchment lined 8x8 glass dish and freeze. Enjoy straight out of the freezer.
~This version, I poured the chocolate over a heavy layer of chopped walnuts and sprinkled with a bit more sea salt.
~Peppermint extract is another delicious option
~Melt 2 TBSP of raw peanut butter in with the coconut oil
~Pour over a thin layer of almonds or peanuts
