So many people asked for this recipe when I posted it on Instagram last night, so here you go!
Last night I was having a craving for chocolate, but I wanted it to be made from just a few simple ingredients. I had just over-indulged on Super Bowl Sunday! There was no way I was eating another cookie.
So, I whipped this up and popped it in the freezer.
By the time I was finished with my dinner it was ready!
Here’s What You Need:
1 Cup Unrefined Coconut Oil
1 Cup Raw Cacao Powder OR Cocoa Powder (I used a combo of both)
1/4 Cup Raw Honey (Or Sweetened To Taste w/ Stevia)
Preferred Toppings: I used Creamy Peanut Butter and Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. But you can also use Chia Seeds, Bee Pollen, Dark Chocolate Chips, Puffed Rice Cereal, Dried Berries. . .the list can go on. . .
Here’s What You Do:
Melt the coconut oil to liquid form if it is solid (which it should be at this time of year). The best method for this would be over stove top – it takes no time at all (**do not let it boil**). When the coconut oil has melted, remove it from the heat and whisk in your Cacao or Cocoa powder (whichever you chose to use). Then whisk in your sweetener of choice (raw honey, stevia, coconut nectar, maple syrup). Once combined, pour into a small baking sheet and add your toppings. Place it in the freezer for at least 20 minutes. When it is solid it is ready to be eaten! The coconut oil makes it really easy to pop out of the sheet (and the clean up is minimal). So pop it out, break it into pieces and enjoy!
Store the chocolate in an air-tight Tupperware in the refrigerator (this chocolate won’t stay solid on the kitchen counter).
*if you are using peanut butter or almond butter I would recommend heating it just a bit otherwise it can be difficult to spread.
There you have it! Homemade chocolate ready by the time you are finished with dinner. Who doesn’t have time for that?
I hope you enjoy and have a great week! I’m off to the Bahamas on Friday, so next week you can expect to see how I remain healthy on vacation and some fashion updates!
