Chocolate Delights are more than delightful!

They are so easy to make! They are creamy and crunchy bites of deliciousness!
All you need is to set aside 8 minutes and to gather your 4 (+ sea salt) ingredients to get started.

-1 cup (heaping) Enjoy Life chocolate chip morsels (sweetened with cane sugar)
-1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter (use organic, without any added sugar)
-1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

-1 tsp. coconut oil

Easy-peasy Directions:
Melt your chocolate chips (I microwave them for 1 min.), stir in the coconut oil, till well blended, carefully pour a small amount of chocolate in the bottom of each opening of an ice cube tray, just enough to coat the bottom, use a small spatula to control the pour then set aside,
toast your coconut flakes for 4-5 mins., while the flakes are toasting in a glass bowl warm your nut butter for 20 seconds, this way it’s easier to work with, drop less than 1/2 tsp of the nut butter in each cube over the chocolate (use a small spatula and a teaspoon for ease in doing this step), then pour the remaining chocolate over each cube, add a dash of sea salt over the chocolate cubes, then sprinkle your toasted coconut flakes over each cube, freeze for 30 mins., pop out of the tray and into your mouthūüĎÖ! YuM!
Store in your refrigerator until you’re ready for another one. For a firmer cube keep them in the freezer.
** alternatives: use a dash of cayenne & leave the coconut flakes off or use an orange twist & also leave the coconut flakes off.
***2 min. Recipe alternative: Mix it all together place in a shallow 8×8 dish & place in the freezer, cut into squares & enjoy.

Valentine’s Day Enjoy Life Delights

photo (86)
After making these treats with the Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate, I knew I had to share the recipe! It’s ridiculously easy and delicious! ¬†These can be made with ZERO cooking skills & minimal effort.
Gathering the ingredients will take the most effort so get going. ¬†Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Fresh Market, Sprouts and even Wal-mart sell the Enjoy Life brand now. ¬†The other ingredients can be found at any one of these stores.¬†Look for Banana (or Plantain) Chips with minimal ingredients and no added sugar. I prefer the Trader Joe’s brand.
Feeling creative? Make a plethora of them and serve on a platter in a heart shape. This is definitely one of those ‘small things’ that make a BIG impact! ¬†Also, think about substitutions: a piece of bacon for the savory chip or a dash of cayenne for the spicy chips. Yes, chocolate and bacon go very well together. They are two peas in a pod, like Thelma & Louise, When Harry met Sally, popcorn and M&M’s, the list goes on…! I think most of my readers (all 3 of you) know this, though.
Remember, Valentine’s Day is just over 2 weeks away (on a Sunday). Even though I’ve never been enthusiastic about this day, I will celebrate it because I have lots of love to share! Plus, I am so loving these treats!!
Be sure to take a picture of your Delights, I would love to see your creations as well!
