Stimulate collagen and satisfy your daily chocolate fix. Blood-sugar-stabilizing and endlessly fudgy—this chocolate does it all. If you don't enjoy the taste of coconut, opt for "refined" coconut oil instead. Customize with your favorite nut or seed butter, and feel free to add chocolate chips, goji berries, or nuts and seeds for a little crunch.
Fudgy Beauty Chocolate
gluten free + dairy free + low/no sugar options
Yield: 12-24 pieces, depending on size
3/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup natural almond, sunflower, cashew, or peanut butter
2 scoops of beauty protein
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup sweetener of choice (granulated monkfruit, stevia, or coconut sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add all ingredients to large bowl and mix until creamy.
Pour mixture into your preferred dish and let set in the freezer until firm, 15-20 minutes.
For mini hearts: use a silicone heart candy mold
For bars or squares: use a parchment-lined 8x8 dish
For "peanut butter cups": use either a full size or mini muffin tin, lined with papers. Peel after firm for ridged edges, like the original peanut butter cup.
Best kept in the fridge (for more fudge-like chocolate) or freezer (for more traditional chocolate texture.)
