In a medium saucepan over a low heat, combine the dark chocolate, oil, butter and sugar. Stir the mixture until melted and smooth, and the sugar has dissolved.
Remove mixture from heat and leave to cool for 10 to 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 160C (fan-forced). Grease oven trays or line with baking paper.
Stir the eggs, plain flour and self-raising flour into the melted chocolate mixture. Once combined, add the finely chopped Cherry Ripe Chocolate Bars into the mixture aswell.
Roll 1 tablespoon of mixture into a ball, and flatten out in a dish of desiccated coconut. Repeat and place each flattened ball about 2cm apart on the oven trays.
