Chocolate, we all love it and some of us hate to love it, but you know what, the love it still there. Want to know my secret to curbing that chocolate craving? Read ahead, and you only truly need 3 ingredients. Such simple ingredients that you probably already have them all at home!
The great thing is that there are so many variations and you can figure out which you like best. Disclaimer: It is not a Reese's or Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar! Come on, it's HEALTHY chocolate, however I really like this version and it curbs that chocolate craving. Plus, I have more energy after eating it because of our friend coconut oil.
-5 Tbs melted coconut oil
-5 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
-2 Tbs Coconut Palm Sugar, honey, or xylitol (For those on Candida Clear- use Xylitol)
Once the coconut oil has melted, mix all the ingredients together really well because the sweeteners like to stay at the bottom. We need it to mix evenly or you'll get some pieces that are amazing and some with little to no sweetness. So mix it good! Once it is all mixed, put cupcake liners in a cupcake tin and pour the chocolatey mixture in. You can find your own way of doing this, but the cupcake liners make it super easy to eat when they are ready.
Note: If you don’t have any, no problem! Just pour the mixture into a bowl, then place your mixture into the freezer.
When making this the coconut oil is in a liquid form because it is warm. Once it is all mixed together and has had time to freeze (5-10 minutes) it will turn more into a fudge/whipped texture. If you leave it in the freezer for 10 or more minutes, it will turn hard like a chocolate bar because the coconut oil is solidifying.
Optional toppings: Raspberries, sea salt, crushed up almonds, nut butter, or that YUM jam we made last week
Note: This is something you don’t want to leave out on a hot day. Coconut oil turns into liquid at around 76 degrees and this doesn’t have anything in it that will prevent it from melting (especially in this hot summer days).
