All about Chocolate
- Equal Exchange 80% Extra Dark Chocolate. I LOVE this stuff!! Each square only has 1 Net Carb, and it is the best tasting chocolate I have tried. I ALWAYS have some in the pantry. Even my hubby who HATES dark chocolate “kinda” likes this brand! I am happy he doesn’t like it so he will leave it alone! (FYI, I have seen this Chocolate Bar in Whole Foods.)
- Equal Exchange 70% Cacao Chocolate Chips. I normally just chop up my 80% chocolate bar above to use in cookies but I was SO happy to see that Tropical Traditions has begun selling 70% Cacao Chocolate Chips! I have never seen chocolate chips (at least the REAL kind) with this amount of cacao!
- Enjoy Life Brand Chocolate Chunks. These chips are great. They have a bit more sugar, but at least they don’t contain soy lecithin, dairy, and artificial flavoring. Stock up on them HERE. (They can also be purchased at Whole Foods.)
Sprinkle 1/2-1 tsp. coconut in the bottom of chocolate mold. (You could also use ice cube trays.) Pour 1 tsp. of melted chocolate over coconut. Add more coconut (approximately 1 tsp.), followed by more chocolate (approximately 1 tsp.), followed by 1 tsp. of sliced almonds. Repeat in the next mold until all of the ingredients have been used. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes. Best served at room temperature.
