Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week. This past week was Chocolate and Mint Ice Cream Week. Today's entry, a "Coconut Secret" Mint Coconut Bar with Cacao Nibs from Leslie's Organics (Mill Valley, CA) helped me bid adieu to the refreshing flavor of mint, and to embrace the rich flavors of coconut. The cacao nibs provided a crunchy filling. This bar was gluten and dairy free.

Today, June 20th, was the first official day of summer. Hot weather summoned up images of coconut palm trees gently swaying in an ocean breeze, and the sound of surf. Unfortunately, that was just the sound of my dishwasher. But, it was nice to imagine eating this bar in a hammock on some enchanted isle.
