Chocolate (every Sunday)

  • Dark cocoa powder or Freeze Dried Cacao Paste (dense with antioxidants)
  • Carob powder is good also and it has it's own sweetener.
  • organically grown Sunflower lecithin Powder (granules are difficult to melt) helps harden. lecithin comes from sludge left after crude oil goes through a ‘degumming’ process. It is a waste product containing solvents and pesticides and has a consistency ranging from a gummy fluid to a plastic solid. So do your research.
  • Coconut oil
  • Coconut shredded ?
  • Sweetener like Stevia or Maple syrup (not too much)
  • Umiboshi vinegar (salt and tartness)
  • Orange zest or lemon will do (zest cutter and organic fruit)
  • Vanilla? Rum flavor? Cinnamon? Ginger? Nutmeg?
  • Fine ground coffee beans??
  • Hazelnut, Pecan, Almond or Walnut butter (or ground) ??
  • Dried Cherries? Minced
  • Milk dry powder?

In a double boiler melt the oil and the lecithin together.
Then add the cocoa a little at a time and taste it, if you make a thick paste it may be too bitter.

A thin hot mix can be poured over popcorn!
