Thumbs up oh, for the love of chocolate!

raw chocolate crunch bar

3 T coconut oil liquid-y
3 T cocoa powder
3 T agave

stir together till a smooth mixture
add enough dried buckwheat sprouts
to satisfy your crunch desire and
pour into a candy mold* and chill.

pop out and enjoy!
note
*if you do not have a candy maker's mold
just spoon out onto a sheet (telflex type) and chill,
peel off when solid. not as pretty- but workable.

variation 1-
chunky...
add raisins & chopped cashews (or other nut) instead of the buckwheat.

(i have made the chunky on more than one occasion...
yummm. but store any candy made w/coconut oil in
fridge ...or you'll be soooorrry.)

variation 2
self hardening chocolate sauce for ice cream.
1st 3 ingredients mixed and spooned over you favorite raw ice cream.
in a few moments it hardens into a shell, kinda like on a dove ice cream bar!

also do not dribble the chocolate mixture on your good jeans,
the resulting 'oil stain' doesn't come out even after many washings.

well that's today's chocolate fix from me

my personal favorite is the choc sauce over ice cream. i made choc cherry cashew ice cream (out of bananas -frozen) and drizzled that sauce over top for bfast one day... and praised the rawfood god for life love and happiness.
(not my usual bfast of gs.)

but i had been making hand dipped chocolates (totally sad ) before finding the raw food connection, and dh is frightned i will cease making those tasty tidbits. so i created this batch of chocolate recipes to soothe his fear.

thanks for you kind comments.
i very much appreciate your personal handling of this website.
thank you.

sweetie, you don't need a dbl bowl or a wisk with this recipe....

easy peasy-
just have your coconut oil liquid starting out and stir
all your ingredients with a spoon... clean that spoon by licking it off.
clean bowl with finger and again lick it clean. mmmm
seee how easy?

I made this last night: oh my goodness, it was delicious...I loved the subtle taste of coconut from the oil, amazing. Mine also solidified just fine (though I didn't add anything to it...I just wanted plain chocolate.

Obviously, I will be making this VERY infrequently (maybe just enough to pour on my ice cream) given that chocolate is DEFINITELY a trigger food for me. But so good! Thank you!

that all depends on the room temp
coconut oil becomes liquid at 76 degrees F

Hmmmm..... this sounds absolutely delish! I may not be able to serve it for my upcoming dessert reception, though. Houston. 95-100 degrees. Humid. Three hours of guests and eating. I just might need to save these for my own personal, private celebration!

Thanks, Snow! Hugs!
