When February rolls around, I always think of chocolates, mmm...
However, I have a big problem buying chocolate at the store, as they are soo expensive and loaded with who know what.
When I found this recipe, I was ecstatic!! It was cheaper than buying store chocolate, healthy, and oh so yummy!
It is also a super easy recipe if you are just interested in making homemade chocolate without all the special tools and supplies that normal chocolate making needs.
So try some out, and then make another batch to share with your friends :0)
|1 cup||baking cocoa|
|1/4 cup||coconut oil, melted|
|1/2 cup||coconut milk|
|raspberry jam, orange flavoring|
|chopped nuts, coconut flakes, extra baking cocoa|
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the coconut oil.
Add the honey and coconut milk. Stir until combined.
Add the baking cocoa and stir until it looks like brownie mix.
If desired, add raspberry jam or orange flavoring (or jam or flavoring of choice). I like to add about two tablespoons of jam or 1 to 2 drops of flavoring.
Cover and place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes or until firm. Pour a little more cocoa, or shredded coconut or chopped nuts, into a shallow bowl (about 2 tablespoons) for the coating.
Scoop out a small spoonful of the hardened chocolate, gently roll it in your hands, and drop it in the bowl with coating. Once you have a couple you can gently swirl the bowl to cover the ball with the cocoa powder.
Then place the covered truffles on wax paper and repeat with the remaining chocolate.
*Note-if you add jam, make sure to add an extra tablespoon or so of cocoa to get the right consistency*
