Put chocolate and coconut oil in a pyrex measuring cup or other microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir mixture with a spoon until smooth. If the chocolate hasn't melted, microwave again for 15 seconds and stir again.
Coat The Chocolate Molds:
Spoon in about 1 tsp of chocolate mixture into the bottom of each mold well.
Use the back of the spoon to draw the mixture up the sides to coat it.
Refrigerate the mold while you make the filling.
Make the Filling
Blend up the shredded coconut until it turns to butter, about 1-2 minutes depending on the speed of your blender.
Add in the cacao powder and maple syrup. Blend again. You might have to stop blender and push the mixture down in the middle to get it to mix up. Once it is combined into a crumbly chocolate mixture, taste-test and add a tablespoon more of maple syrup if it is not too sweet. You want this filling to be soft but also not too sweet, so you decide. Also if you used cocoa powder instead of cacao powder, you might not want to add more maple syrup because cocoa powder is sweeter than cacao powder.
Fill the Mold Wells
Remove the silicon tray from refrigerator, and roll tiny balls of the mixture and press into the molds, flatting the top level with the top of the mold well.
Spoon 1/2 tsp or less of melted chocolate on top of each well and set in refrigerator to solidify. At least one hour. We kept them there for 1 week in the mold.
Remove from Mold
If you used a polycarbonate mold, remove the chocolates by turning the mold over onto a dish or parchment paper and rap the mold sharply. Sometimes you need to slightly twist the mold. It takes effort but it's worth it because the chocolates that come out of a polycarbonate mold have a stunning shean.
Store the Chocolates
Once out of the mold, store the chocolates at room temperature for two days, then in the refrigerator for 1 week, or freeze indefinitely. However either method will slightly dull the sheen.
Give Chocolates as Presents
To present them, put each chocolate in a mini paper cup liners, add to a box, and present your gift at room temperature within 48 hours.
