I’ve never been one for Valentine’s Day.
When I was in 10th grade my boyfriend made me a hand welded amethyst ring and I told him it “looked hard to make” then walked away. In 12th grade my boyfriend and I ate our first chocolate fondue over a delicious Valentine’s Day dinner then proceeded to amicably break up. College days are a blur in general, though I do remember one where me and my partner at the time got A&W burgers and went to a black and white movie…I guess they weren’t all bad.
No matter what your feelings are about the love-centric aspects of Valentine’s Day, I think we can all agree that a day celebrating chocolate in the middle of February is a universal good.
So with that, here’s a recipe for some. And it’s kinda healthy, but not too healthy.
Healthy Homemade Chocolate
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- 1 heaping tbsp honey
- 3 tbsp good quality cocoa powder
- In a medium sized bowl mix together melted coconut oil, honey and almond butter and stir until smooth.
- Add in cocoa powder and mix until well combined.
- Line a shallow bowl with saran wrap.
- Pour mixture directly onto saran wrap and freeze for 30 minutes.
- Remove bowl from freezer, peel away saran wrap. Use a sharp knife to chop chocolate into 3 inch squares (mine made about 16).
- Store in freezer until ready to eat.
