    Chocolate Coconut Oil

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    So I know this is a recipe forum, but I figure since we talk about food here I could mention this. I was out getting some raw milk when I came across Something Pure Velvet Chocolate Coconut Oil. That's right. Chocolate coconut oil... and it's very nearly paleo. It's made with EVCO, dates, cacao powder, coconut sugar, and spices. I can't wait to try it. I'm thinking I might melt it down with some cacao butter and firm it back up again.
    Anyone else tried this product?

    No, but you could try melting a bunch of coconut oil, mixing with cacao and preferred amount of sweetener, and have the same thing? I think this homemade version tastes REALLY good

    I go super simple with it. I put some coconut oil in a bowl and put it under the broiler on low for a couple minutes until it's liquid.
    Then add in a few TJ's 85% squares, mix, and pour it into a foil lined plate. 10 minutes in the freezer and you have some melt in your mouth goodness. I've tried lots of ratios (more or less chocolate vs. oil) and they are all delicious.

    You can also add nuts, shredded coconut, wild blueberries, etc..but it's really good just plain.

    I mix coconut oil, toasted coconut, butter, and dark chocolate squares then melt them together. Spread them on to a pan and harden them, then eat them like fudge. I don't do it often because it is too yummy to keep around.

    I frequently make date balls with all of those ingredients except for sugar. The dates are sweet enough.

    I nuke the dates for about 20 seconds, because warming them up slightly makes them really easy to squish into paste with your fingers or a processor.

    Hm, never really thought of that. I was wondering how to heat it up without doing the microwave or a pan. Going to try that next time
