recipe: freezer chocolate


So the other day I was talking with a fellow creative who was telling me how she cut all processed sugar out of her diet. She sweetens things with maple syrup, honey, and stevia. She told me about this three ingredient chocolate that absolutely blew my mind. So this chocolate has no processed sugar AND it's vegan AND gluten free. 3 simple ingredients. Crazy. Savannah and I just had to try this, but Savannah doesn't like chocolate (Have you stopped breathing? Crazy. I know.), so we also made this peanut butter version, which is actually my favorite.
Freezer Chocolate
Ingredients:
For Chocolate
- 1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
- 2 Tbs. Maple Syrup

For Peanut Butter
- 1/4 Cup PB2
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
- 2 Tbs. Maple Syrup

Directions:
1. Heat coconut oil in microwave for 30 seconds.
2. Whisk in powder and syrup.
3. Pour mixture into mold (or ice cube tray or just on a plate) and freeze.
4. Chocolate will be ready in about 20 minutes. Store in freezer and serve cold.
The peanut butter one is to die for. Really. You should definitely try to make some. We even layered a few of the chocolates with a little bit of both mixtures. We also tried some with protein powder... don't do it. It ain't right. The options for this chocolate are endless though. You could mix in nuts, dried berries, coconut or granola. You could drizzle the sauce onto ice cream or straight into your mouth. We don't judge. We've just given you the knowledge, now it's up to you what you do with it.
