Homemade Detox Chocolates & DIY Valentine’s Treats
Love is in the air, and it tastes like chocolate!
When Valentine’s Day rolls around, we try to think of the perfect gift for that special someone in our lives. We want to give them a give that shows them how we feel and how much we appreciate them being in our lives. It isn’t something to be taken lightly, and it can require some thought to come up with the perfect plan.
This Valentine’s Day, make something special for that someone special in your life. This is one sweet, crunchy treat they will not soon forget. Better than any chocolates you can buy at the store, these health-conscious chocolates will show your loved one just how much you care.
They say that the best gifts are the ones that come from the heart. They are the ones that you put time into and are thoughtful. Picking up a box of chocolates from the store may be a nice gesture, but you can hardly say they’re made with love and forethought.
If you want to give chocolate this Valentine’s Day, give your partner a treat that is made with ingredients that will support their health, so they are around for a long time. This is because these homemade chocolates are made Detox Organics Daily Superfood, our all-natural supplement made from over 25 raw organic superfoods. Each of these superfoods was handpicked for their anti-inflammatory health benefits.
This Valentine’s Day, say “I love you” with a gift that is unique; one your partner will never forget! Valentine’s Day isn’t just about giving your partner’s gifts. Traditional gifts become tiring and predictable. A box of store-bought chocolates tastes just as plain as they did the year before, and the flowers wilt and die. A homemade treat shows thought and care, and these treats are so good they will put all other Valentine’s Day chocolates to shame.
With this chocolate Valentine’s Day dessert, you get a cup of chocolate nuts that provides a sweet, crunchy experience. Then, finish it off with chocolate bark that is extra sweet and fruitful thanks to the strawberry topping.
Homemade Detox Chocolate
(Makes about 1 cup of chocolate)
- ½ cup coconut oil
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 2 scoops Detox Organics Daily Superfood
- 2 tbsp almond butter or peanut butter
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
Chocolate Nut Clusters
(Makes 3 clusters)
- ¼ cup nuts
- 3 tbsp Homemade Detox Chocolate
Strawberry Chocolate Bark
- ¼ cup Homemade Detox Chocolate
- 1.4 cup freeze-dried strawberries
- 1 tbsp cacao nibs
- Flaky sea salt
In a microwaveable bowl, add the coconut oil. Microwave in increments of 15 seconds, until the coconut oil is very soft but not totally melted (you don’t want the
oil super hot otherwise the coating will be too thin).
Stir in the cocoa powder, Detox Organics Daily Superfood, nut butter, and maple syrup until smooth.
If the mixture is too thin, let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to thicken (coconut oil is very temperature sensitive).
To make the nut clusters, line a mini-muffin pan with 3 mini-muffin cups. Divide the nuts between each cup and top with the chocolate. Place in the freezer for at least 10 minutes to solidify.
To make the strawberry chocolate bark, line a small baking sheet or loaf pan with parchment. Pour the chocolate onto the parchment paper. Sprinkle with freeze-dried strawberries, cacao nibs, and sea salt. Place in the freezer for at least 10 minutes to solidify.
Store the nut clusters and bark in the freezer (they will get soft and melty at room
