Nuts 4 chocolate

After making this nutty dark chocolate at home last week, I don’t think I will buy chocolate from the store again (well maybe just not all that often). These little treats tasted so good, and best of all, I can determine how sweet I want it by adding more or less stevia/ honey/ maple syrup or whatever sweetener you like!

1/2 cup organic coconut oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp stevia powder (can use 2 Tbls honey or maple syrup if you wish)
1/2 cup mixed nuts (note – you can use anything you wish in your chocolate moulds. Orange rind, blueberries, dried fruit and coffee beans are all good ideas.)

1. In a saucepan heat coco oil on low heat until melted.
2. Add cocoa, vanilla and stevia/ honey and mix well. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
3. In a mould or shallow dish with baking paper, spread nuts then pour chocolate over.
4. Set in fridge for at least 1 hour.

Enjoy! I have mine as a snack with a cup of tea.

    These nutty choc treats must taste delish! I really think you have skills in the kitchen and travel cooking documentaries maybe a thing you could look play around with in the future, i love them!

    The best, I can only eat homemade chocolate now! The taste and texture of store bought dark chocolate is weird for me now! So much better, healthier and you only need a small amount to satisfy your craving! Good on you Rachel!
