Last week I started my very own national celebration. Actually, I think I’ll call it my very own international celebration since I have some readers outside the United States. I named that celebration: Chocolate Without Guilt Week. First, let me be very clear that I never feel guilty when I eat chocolate. Chocolate, for me, is: dancing with delicious. Sure, I can tell you all about the health benefits of chocolate but that’s not why I eat it. And I can also tell you that some of the chocolates I’ve eaten in the past two weeks were not exactly “healthy.” That’s okay. There are times when pleasure supersedes nutrition.
With that said, I did come across a goldmine of healthy chocolate recipes last week. Check out the raw chocolate recipe round-up, yum! I also found a wonderful recipe for homemade nutella (chocolate hazlenut spread).
And what’s my favorite healthy chocolate recipe? I like to play with George Mateljan’s 10-minute truffle recipe. There’s always a stash of those in my refrigerator or freezer. Last week I added a drop of orange oil and a pinch of chili powder. To live for! What’s your favorite healthy chocolate recipe?
