Admit it. It’s OK. Don’t hold back.
“I LOVE CHOCOLATE!” Phew. I feel better now that I got that off my chest. How do you feel?
It is always good to just let it out. No sense holding it in and pretending that now that we are eating whole, unprocessed, nutritious foods that we just forgot about chocolate. I know some people like to pretend that “I just don’t like it anymore now that I am eating better” but is that really the truth or just what they want people to think?
It is NOT a character flaw to love chocolate. It is not a weak will. It does not show lack of self control. It is perfectly OK to enjoy chocolate. In moderation. In the most healthy way possible.
I made this fudge with 3 ingredients. That in itself is pretty great. Dark chocolate bar. Maple syrup. Coconut oil.
The one flaw that this healthy chocolate fudge may have is that the chocolate bar has evaporated cane juice which is closer to refined sugar than I generally like but the remaining ingredients were good – cocoa mass (73%) and cocoa butter. Since this is for a special treat, I wasn’t overly concerned about the minimal sugar.
- 3.5 ounces of dark chocolate (sweetened, 73% cocoa or close…)
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of maple syrup
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
