Chocolate Layer

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/8 tsp salt

In a small sauce pan, melt coconut oil and honey over low heat.  Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Pour over the cookie crust and place in freezer for about 15 minutes or until chocolate is hard.  You may want to keep in fridge as you prepare the custard layer.

*** My amazing wife who made this dish says this is the hardest part.  It was her first time making custard and the texture wasn’t what she was hoping, though it tasted amazing.
