Ok, my biggest vice is chocolate. If I’m having a rough day, I go grab chocolate. If I’m having a good day, I go grab chocolate. Take a look at your basic chocolate bar. It contains soy lethicin. Not a good thing if you are trying to eliminate soy from your diet. So, the internet is a wonderful thing. I went online and found a recipe on how to make my own chocolate, from cocoa powder. I have Dutch cocoa powder, so, I figured I would give it a try. Right now, it’s still chilling in the decorative molds that I had. Granted, most of them are Christmas themed, but I’m ok with that. But the warmed liquid chocolate tasted pretty good. It definitely a dark chocolate. So, depending on what I can figure out with this, I’ll need to adjust the amount of milk and sugar ratio to cocoa. Thankfully, I really do prefer dark chocolate, so it shouldn’t be an issue to eat this. The last half of the batch, I put some mint extract in it to make a minty chocolate. probably won’t do that for the dark chocolate again, as I didn’t like that taste as much. but once I figure out the lighter chocolate, well, it will definitely go in that batch.
I know, another quick post, but my toast with almond butter is getting cold, so I need to go eat. 😉
