Essential Chocolate

Leave a comment

Most people would agree that chocolate is an essential for Valentines Day. Creating your own chocolates for yourself or your sweetheart is fun and easy.

  1. Just melt a bag organic chocolate chips. Add a teaspoon of coconut oil and stir in.
  2. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to give it a delicious and healthy kick.
  3. Spoon over your favorite nuts on wax paper or pour into fun shaped candy molds.
  4. Let cool. Then enjoy!

Some of the best essential oils to couple with chocolate are:

  • Peppermint: there is nothing like that combination of rich, dark chocolate with the fresh crispness of peppermint.(Peppermint works best with dark chocolate.)
  • Orange: orange and chocolate are of course a match made in heaven. (Tangerine is equally delicious.)
  • Lemon: brings a bright and tangy flavor to chocolate.
  • Lime: this works well with both dark and white chocolate. I recently made some lime-flavoured white chocolate truffles dipped in dark chocolate – they were pretty damn good!
  • Bergamot: this oil is from the same plant as earl grey tea.
  • Lemongrass: adds an unexpected and pleasant zing. It’s strong, so don’t add too much.
  • Cardomom: is a classic partner for chocolate.
  • Ginger: is delicious in chocolate is ginger with a dash of cinnamon powder.

Chocolates make a great gift any time of year. Chocolates made with essential oil have a gourmet, special flavor with added health benefits!
