A Healthy Chocolate Fix

Bill and I have been trying to eat a a tablespoon of organic, unrefined coconut oil every day. I must admit he has been more successful than I. This stuff has the texture of shortening and is too oily tasting for me. Last night at dinner we were discussing this with my friend and neighbor, Marlene, the natural health guru from Pente 5. She gave me this awesome recipe for making it a real chocolate treat!

Marlene takes 85% extra dark Cocoa, melts it along with her coconut oil in the microwave. Stir it up and let it cool. Oh so yummy! Eat a chunk as a dessert with no guilt!





I used one 15 oz. jar of coconut oil and one bar of Hershey's Dark Chocolate 'cause I had it in the cabinet and didn't want to go out. After all, waste not want not I always say. When I run out of this batch (which might be soon when Bill discovers it) I'll use the 80%. This is so good that my problem now is eating only one chunk a day!
