DIY Chocolates that taste better than most store-bought versions
If you want to know more about the health benefits of eating cacao, please take a look at my post: How to tell if you are eating chocolate that is good for you. You will discover that unfortunately, most chocolates in the market are not real chocolate.
Luckily, I was able to find organic cacao powder at Whole Foods but it is also available online. I thought of making my own chocolates and found out a way to make an amazing 3 ingredient chocolate recipe. Yes, only 3 super healthy ingredients. Make your chocolate using fun molds. This time I used the egg chocolate mold and a heart chocolate mold. But you can also simply use a classic chocolate bar mold.
Now this is what I call a healthy treat. Eating chocolate can bring health benefits, and I mean, lots of health benefits! Make sure you choose a good quality coconut oil and raw honey or if you prefer, you can use maple syrup instead. I actually love the texture using maple syrup and additionally, it is also the perfect choice to make chocolates for vegans.
