I’ve mentioned about a million times before that I’m not chocolate’s biggest fan. I’ll reach for sugar cookies or blondies over chocolate just about 99% of the time.
BUT. I’ll admit that every once in a while, I do find myself craving a dense, fudgy, decedent chocolate treat.
Today was one of those days.
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 -1/3 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you want them to be)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
directions: Combine coconut flour, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl, and sift with a fork to remove any lumps. Set aside. In a separate large bowl, whisk together melted butter, sugar, and vanilla. Then add the dry chocolate mixture and combine well. Use a tablespoon to make 10-12 brownie bites and then roll them into little balls. Place on a parchment or foil-lined plate, and freeze for 10 minutes before eating. Store in a tupperware the
freezer refrigerator…if they last that long.
If you want to get really fancy, you could roll these in some crushed nuts, shredded coconut, or powdered sugar.
I guess you could also refer to these as “truffles,” but…brownie batter just sounds like more fun to eat, if you ask me.
What’s your favorite way to eat chocolate?
