Woah dude, why buy another chocolate bar ever again. This is soooo yummy!!! Wowww, I LOVE the combo of almonds and chocolate, coconut and chocolate, and orange and chocolate. SO I chose the perfectly logical conclusion and put ALL 3 in my chocolate. YES. It was the right decision, for sure!
Do you crave dark chocolate bars? I’ve been know to stock up on Ghirardelli, Theo, or Endangered Species chocolate bars, but I’m trying to go vegan! Plus who wants to leave home for chocolate when you can make your own!! This recipe makes dark, really satisfying chocolate! It tastes to me like about 60-70% dark (in terms of store bought). You could add more dates to make it sweeter if you prefer, I would imagine. To me, this was PERFECT.
Basic easy recipe is:
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2-3 medjool dates pureed
Puree all ingredients, pour into rectangular container lined with foil or parchment paper. Sprinkle shredded coconut, fresh orange zest, and slivered almonds into the chocolate and pop into the fridge for a few hours to fully solidify, then cut or break into pieces and store in the fridge to keep firm. ENJOY FREQUENTLY 😀 This is so so so easy that I will be making often 🙂 Better stock up on ingredients.
Also pictured are some pure chocolate one, sans add-ins. Also delicious, but of course better with the added ingredients in my book 🙂
