So, Valentine’s Day is approaching and I was wondering how to get around the problem of chocolate for people wanting to be healthy. I remembered some months ago that I had seen something about making your own and so (as is normal) I didn’t try and look for the recipe I just thought I’d go for it from memory.
I must remember not to do this.
So, I melted it again and was much more impressed with the finished result. Please appreciate, if you like dark, bitter chocolate. You’ll like this. If you like Galaxy or Dairy Milk, you probably won’t! 🙂
Homemade Fruit & Nut Chocolate
6 tablespoons coconut oil
6 tablespoons organic cocoa
2 teaspoon Xylitol
1/2 teaspoon ground Stevia leaf (you could probably leave this out it’s so minimal)
Chopped raisins and flaked almonds
Melt coconut oil, stir in cocoa powder, Xylitol and Stevia. Pour into a glass Pyrex dish sprinkle raisins and nuts over the melted chocolate and pop in fridge to set.
Desiccated coconut between 3-5 tablespoons
I’ve seen people add salt to theirs (not tried that).
So, a healthy treat, that you really can’t gorge on. Way too rich, but hits the chocolate spot. That’s in my opinion, but then it’s my blog!
P.S should have produced a nice picture of my efforts, but there isn’t any left!
