These chocolates -- free of refined sugar and made from whole foods ingredients -- come to us from Portland, Oregon, nutritionist and blogger Andrea Nakayama.
- 1/2 cup gently melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup gently melted cacao butter
- 1/2 cup raw honey
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract (optional)
- 1/2 cup carob powder
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
Mix all ingredients in bowl until they are well integrated.
Scoop rounded spoonfuls into mini muffin or candy cups. Be sure to get some honey in each scoop so that it doesn't all sink to the bottom.
Freeze for an hour or until candies are hardened and serve directly from the freezer.
