I can’t believe it’s not chocolate

IMG_9631I was inspired by a colleague of mine who recently made this I can’t believe it’s not chocolate recipe from the Thermomix Recipe Community.

This recipe is so simple to throw together – I had all the ingredients in my pantry. All you need is cashews, almonds, shredded coconut, coconut oil, dates and cocoa (I used cacao). You can use any nuts of choice in this recipe.

After mixing it all together the recipe says to spread it on a tray lined with baking paper. I wanted to do something different and made mine into chocolate ‘buttons’.

After freezing for 15 minutes (or until set) they’re ready to be eaten and taste just like coconut roughs! So yum!! 🙂

Raw Chocolate

IMG_4852I absolutely love this recipe for dairy free raw chocolate from Quirky Cooking! Use it for chocolate molds or make a tray of chocolate bark like I did.

It is so simple to make and only requires the few ingredients shown above. You can get creative and add what ever you have in your cupboard. Add some dried fruit or nuts or some shredded coconut or goji berries – listen to your taste buds 🙂

This chocolate recipe is also great for chocolate covered strawberries. Just dip each strawberry into the chocolate and then place in the freezer until it sets. Yum!
