Indulge the ones you love with this rich and wonderful chocolate, and let your family and friends call you the next Willy Wonka! The chocolate is delicious, and natural. We bet you will want to sneak into your refrigerator at least once a day, for just one teeny bite.
This recipe comes directly from our friend Lindsey Bernat Gremont, who writes a blog filled with delicious and nutritious recipes. homemademommy.net Lindsey has discovered how to make the best “snacking” chocolate. And it is so easy! Be sure to ask Mom and Dad if it is okay to give to your grandchildren. We don’t want to get into too much trouble…
- ½ cup virgin raw coconut oil
- ¼ cup raw honey
- ½ cup raw cacao powder (can substitute with carob powder if chocolate bothers you, or do ½ and ½ )
- dash sea salt
- ½ tsp of vanilla
In a heat resistant pyrex or other glass bowl or measuring cup, add the coconut oil. Fill a small saucepan with a few inches of water and place the glass measuring cup in the saucepan. Heat on stovetop until coconut oil is mostly melted (room temp – not hot).
While the coconut oil is melting, add all the other ingredients to a food processor. Then add the coconut oil and blend until combined in the food processor.
Place some plastic wrap or parchment paper in a loaf pan to cover the bottom and sides of the pan. Pour the chocolate mixture into the loaf pan and cover with the plastic wrap (gently). Press down or tilt to even out the thickness — about 1/2 inch thick.
Place the loaf pan with the fudge into the freezer and let it set for about 20 minutes. Remove and slice into bite sized pieces. Put the pieces into a jar and store in the refrigerator. You can also double the recipe and store half of the already cut up pieces in the freezer for future enjoyment.
