I am a chocoholic. There's no denying it. Since I've been trying to cut back drastically on refined sugars, it's been a little tricky cutting out my favorite chocolate treats. This recipe has been a life saver. Using organic cocoa powder, local honey, and organic coconut oil, not only does this satisfy my chocolate cravings, but it's loaded with nutrients. And an added bonus: you can use this recipe 3 different ways!! Coconut oil solidifies at 76 degrees, so this will harden when you put it on ice cream or anything cold. You can also line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and pour the heated chocolate into the pan. Let it set up in the fridge for a little bit and you have chocolate bars or chunks, depending on how you break it up. It also makes a great sauce for dipping at the liquified state, as I have it shown in the picture. Here's the recipe:
Vanilla extract to taste
A pinch or two of salt
Heat the coconut oil in a sauce pan until liquid. Stir in remaining ingredients. Let cool to thicken for use as a sauce, or pour into parchment paper covered baking sheet and refrigerate.
Enjoy the endless possibilities that this yummy chocolate sauce will bring!! What will you make with yours?
