What if I told you there was an extremely healthy way to eat chocolate? That's exactly what this recipe is! I am always ranting about how coconut oil is extremely good for you, and it's the main ingredient in this chocolate recipe. It's so simple too!
  • 20 organic strawberries – wash and set aside
Coconut Oil Chocolate:
Patiently melt the coconut oil for your healthy chocolate by putting it in a bowl and placing that bowl over a bowl of warm water. Don't allow any water in the coconut oil and don't overheat it. Never microwave any of the ingredients. You can also warm it in a toaster oven on the lowest warm setting.
Warm the honey separately, the same way as the coconut oil. It is important for the honey to be runny in order to combine with coconut oil.
Once the coconut oil and honey are warm combine all of the ingredients in a blender or a bowl and mix well.
Assembly:
Dip dry strawberries in the chocolate and place on a clean plate. Make sure not to get too much chocolate on the strawberry or it will all drip off. Once the plate is full place it in the freezer for 20 minutes for the chocolate to harden. Remove from the freezer and enjoy! This chocolate can also be used as a fondue for dipping fruit (just skip the freezer step) or poured into molds and made into chocolate bars.

  6. I used to do the hgc diet and one of the only things that would keep me sane (since I am such a sweet fanatic) is making that chocolate recipe! I would just pore in on freezer paper and after a bit of time, I would have a candy bar! Came by from the speak up link up...thanks for linking up!!
