If you’re a chocolate lover you are in the right place! This month, a group of food bloggers decided to doing something fun and yummy together. We were easy paired up with another food blogger and we had to choose one recipe to make from that website. I had a hard time deciding what to make at Plate Ate Six. Nancy’s website has some amazing recipes to make.In addition to her cooking, she shares her travels too. She a Brit that currently lives in Shanghai. She shares some amazing adventures. Please take a moment and check out her site.
Initially, I had my heart set on her Spicy Thai pomelo salad with a hot, sweet & sour dressing, but then I saw Nancy’s recipe for Fake Chocolate. Shout the front door! We have a winner!
Fake Chocolate is an amazing treat that is paleo, gluten free, and contains no refined sugars. This is made with 3 basic, real food ingredients; maple syrup, cocoa powder, and coconut oil. You simple mix them together, add any extra mix ins you like and refrigerate. That’s it! I’m sure you have these three things in your kitchen right now.
Fake Chocolate is luscious dark chocolate. The bad news is you can whip this up anytime and be enjoying it in about 40 minutes if you follow the directions or 15 minutes if you set the chocolate in the freezer to set. So you can make chocolate whenever the cravings hit. All I can say to that is, “You’re Welcome.” Just promise me you’ll enjoy every luscious bite.
Don’t you love this mold? I bought this dinosaur silicone mold months ago. My kids love this mold. It creates really fun shapes. For this recipe, I recommend a silicone mold like this or silicone muffins cups. If you don’t have those, you can use any baking sheet. Just line it with waxed paper before getting started.
You can customize your chocolate with mix ins. My favorite was the shredded coconut and almond extract. I list a few ideas in the recipe, but you can create your own version. What would you add?
Mix in Ideas (Choice one)
There you have it, Fake Chocolate. You’ll love/hate how easy this is to make. You’ll no longer have an excuse to deny your chocolate cravings. But since this has without refined sugars or added artificial ingredients, you could almost call it healthy. Enjoy!
