ohh emm geeee!

for those of you who know me well you know that chocolate is a real problem for me. i will eat it until i am sick. i will sneak it. i will even eat the shittiest of qualities when in dire straights. at times i truly do feel like i have a serious habit i must kick. i have special, secret and weird ways that i like to eat my chocolate and in most cases i choose a good quality dark, dark, dark chocolate. YUM! here is a little gem i found in one of my mums raw food cookbooks. it is a great alternative, super easy, and.....wait for it....HEALTHY!

all you need is

1 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup of good quality dark cocoa
1-2 teaspoons of agave nectar
handful of any or all of the following currants, raisins, almonds, hemp seeds, coconut.....or whatever other treat you may want. try fresh mint too!

i use a double boiler and melt the coconut oil then mix in the cocoa, agave nectar and any treats i may want to add. pour your concoction onto a wax paper covered dish (the dish should have sides as the chocolate is runny at first). place it in the fridge for a 5-10 minutes. i cut it into small squares and store it in the fridge.

it's so good you may want to overindulge at first;) i would advise to take it easy as it is a bit rich, but great for that after dinner craving! and don't forget a high quality dark chocolate is good for you!


  1. i will say as a person who has tried and actually gone so far as to make myself feel ill on this stuf that its tooooo die for....mmm
