Add the toasted coconut flakes into the blender cup and pulse for about 45 seconds, starting from low speed, increasing to the highest. I did not need to stop my Vitamix once, but depending on which machine you are using, you may need to stop a few times to bring the flakes to the center.
Add vanilla extract, cacao butter and a pinch of sea salt. Pulse for about 30 seconds.
Lastly add the maple syrup (this can be substituted for Agave or honey, but it will no longer be a Vegan recipe). Pulse for just a few seconds, about 15. Again starting from low speed and increasing to the highest.
Spray a loaf pan with coconut oil and pour the thick mixture onto a loaf pan. Refrigerate for a 3-4 hours or overnight to set.
Cut the coconut fudge into small pieces (or big if you wish). Keep it refrigerated.
