Nourishing Homemade Chocolate

What is it about nourishing homemade chocolate that sends me over the edge? Or maybe I
chocolate-203276_640should just say chocolate for that matter. This is one indulgence that
I have that has been with me for the longest. Chocolate has been a part of my sweet tooth repertoire since I was small. There was even a time when I finally ate enough of this recipe that I was able to not eat some for a while. Shhh…don’t tell anybody that though.

So what is in this most delightful recipe? Three simple ingredients then modify to your hearts content. Literally…HA!

Nourishing Homemade Chocolate Recipe

½ cup Coconut Oil

½ cup Cocoa

¼ cup Honey (Local, unrefined is best. Raw is another option.)

Stir and enjoy!

Variations

I absolutely love to substitute palm shortening from Healthy Traditions. When I use this, I may sub all of the coconut oil or ½ coconut oil and ½ palm shortening. It’s a wonderful texture and a change to the types of fats I’m taking in.

I’ve also been known to add in a dash of cinnamon, cayenne pepper, cacao nibs, chopped nuts, etc.  I also have a really nice black lava salt that is simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

What is your favorite addition to chocolate?
