From the Vitality Food Feature ‘Super Foods for Extreme Longevity‘.

Having a chocolate craving but can’t find a treat without cane sugar or dairy? Here’s the answer for you!

Ingredients:

½ cup coconut oil
½ cup raw cocoa powder
3 Tbsp honey or coconut syrup
½ tsp vanilla extract or mint extract

Optional Toppings: almonds, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, coconut, cinnamon, coarse sea salt, dried fruit.

Pour over fruit in ice cube trays for a fancy look!

Gently melt coconut oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir cocoa powder, honey, and vanilla extract into melted oil until well blended. Pour mixture into a candy moulds or pliable silicone tray. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. Best served chilled to avoid melting.

To make it more creamy, you can sub out ¼ cup of coconut oil for coconut butter. Be sure to melt the butter into the oil gently before adding the rest of the ingredients. Do not use coconut butter alone as it will burn.
