Less Guilt Chocolate Candy

Chocolate is one of those words that instantly grabs our attention, often eliciting a little swoon from our mouths.  I’ve even heard that magazines sell more copies when a photo of some sinful chocolate dessert graces the cover.  And, yes, I admit it – I’m a chocoholic like my mama before me.  However, I’m noticing that I have to down size the desserts as I’ve gotten older or else the pounds start creeping on.  Now let’s not get crazy – I’m not banishing them, just having smaller portions.

My guest on this week’s show was actress Katie Rubin (www.katierubin.com) who came on with a chocolate candy recipe that’s lower in calories, and maybe even better for you.  She also claimed the recipe is fast and easy – my two favorite cooking adverbs – and she was right.  ‘Chocolate’, ‘candy’, ‘fast’, ‘easy’….I went out the next day, bought the ingredients and made the candy, experimenting a bit.

The basic candy is all of three ingredients with add-in options:

–  6 T Wondercocoa  (you can get it at Whole Foods or online)

–  6 T coconut oil, melted

–  6 drops liquid Stevia

–  options:  sea salt, cayenne pepper, nuts, anything else that suits your fancy

Mix everything together and pour into an ice cube tray about 1/4 inch thick.  You’ll probably get about 18 candies.  Freeze.  That’s it!

About vegetariancookingforcarnivores

I grew up in a typical meat & potatoes house. When I became a vegetarian, I put aside the delicious meat recipes I was using in favor of omelettes, rice & beans, and salads. Then I found the world of imitation products and began incorporating them into my old recipes. You're more likely to remain a vegetarian if you don't feel like you're sacrificing. With the right product in the right recipe, you can once again enjoy 'meat' recipes.
