{chocolate} love

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

remember how not so long ago i bragged up my energy bar recipe?

well i do hope you tried it and that i have therefore earned your trust, because today i am giving you my very own chocolate recipe. and, trust, it is the best thing i have ever created...right after p and b that is!

let's get to it.

you will need:

1 heaping cup cacao butter wafers {if you have chunks of cacao butter, and a scale, use 120g}

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla powder

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cup cacao powder

1/4 cup spirulina {say what?!? algae in chocolate...who knew!}

15 drops peppermint essential oil

tiny amount of coarse sea salt

a silicon loaf pan


- find a bowl and a pot that fit nicely together {or use your double boiler, if you own one}, put the cacao butter and coconut oil in the bowl and fill the pot halfway with water, then simply put the bowl on top of the pot and bring the pot to a boil.

- once all of the cacao butter and coconut oil have melted you can, carefully, take your bowl off the pot and then whisk in the vanilla, maple syrup, cacao powder, spirulina and peppermint oil.

- once your mixture is, well, mixed you can pour the whole lot into your container {i have found a silicon loaf pan works great because it makes a nice big bar {about half an inch thick} and it is super easy to remove the chocolate from the pan} and then sprinkle the surface with some coarse sea salt...because salt and chocolate are one of the most perfect combinations in the history of mankind.

- you can allow the chocolate to solidify at room temperature or put it in the fridge if you are impatient.

- once it has all firmed up i pop it out of the silicon loaf pan, cut it into big chunks and store it in a sealable container in the fridge.


and delicious.

and guilt free as every single one of those ingredients is so good for you.

i also love that i am able to get the wee men eating spirulina without them even knowing it...muahahahaha!

there you go loves. i hope you enjoy this one as much as we do.
