Is there any food better than chocolate in this world? And I’m not talking about Hershey’s milk silliness (though if you really like that, it’s fine by me). I’m talking real chocolate: rich, dark, smooth. . . . the kind you can’t eat very much of, the kind that makes you wonder if chocolate will have any part in heaven.
Ok, maybe that last bit is going a little far… 😉
These chocolates have you covered on the rich, dark, and smooth fronts, with the added bonus of being stinkin’ easy to make. And to top it all off, with the healthy fats from the butter, and the healing properties of the honey, they’re actually healthy!
So, what are you waiting for? Get yourself into the kitchen and make some!
- Line an 8x8 inch dish with foil.
- In small saucepan melt butter. Keep it at a low simmer until it starts to get little brown flecks at the bottom of the pan and smells kind-of nutty (about 15-20 minutes).
- Stir in cocoa powder until melted, then add honey.
- Remove from heat and stir in salt and vanilla.
- Pour into prepared dish and refrigerate or freeze until set (only takes a few minutes).
- Cut into chunks.
- Try not to eat all at once. 😉
- Store left-overs in the fridge.
- Makes a couple dozen, depending on how big you cut your pieces.
