Whenever I cover something in chocolate, I immediately associate it with love. Chocolate will do that. The chemicals in chocolate make us feel just as we do when we are falling in love. Chocolate is so delicious, in fact, that more women would rather eat chocolate than have sex.
I believe I have proven quite fairly that raw chocolate (cacao) is the most delicious health food ever. So why not enjoy it and love it? Chocolate stimulates the secretion of endorphins and serotonin — there’s a perfect phytochemical cocktail for smiling and feeling awesome. Now, what if we took that chocolate and wrapped it around some juicy fruits, sprinkled with essential fat, fibre and protein rich hemp seeds, and then sprinkled with mineral abundant celtic sea salt. Hello most delicious health food in the whole wide world!
Chocolate Dipping Sauce
1/3 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup coconut oil

• Blend together or melt together over low heat using a double boiler method (large pot with water, smaller pot inside the larger pot for melting chocolate — keeping direct heat away from pot with chocolate).
• Dip in fruit of choice and place on parchment lined plate
• Sprinkle with superfood topping of choice (hemp seeds, ground goji, bee pollen, chia etc.) and a sprinkle of sea salt.
• Place in fridge to harden chocolate or freeze for a special frozen treat.
