Description

Here’s an easy and healthy-ish way to enjoy chocolate from my chocolate e-recipe book, “If It’s Not Chocolate, It’s Not Worth It”. Make these to impress your loved one or yourself. Who needs a reason?

Ingredients

  • ⅓ cups Almond Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Orange Zest
  • 1-¼ cup Dark Chocolate Chips Or Chunks (70% Or More Cocoa)
  • ⅓ cups Cocoa Powder (or Raw Cacao Powder) Or More If Needed To Thicken The Dough

Preparation

Place almond milk in the top of a double boiler (over about two inches of simmering water in the bottom pan) over medium heat. If you don’t have a double boiler, just put a heat-proof mixing bowl (in other words, not plastic) over a pan of gently simmering water.

If using a flavoring (optional), add it now and let it steep for five minutes. For this batch I used fresh orange zest but you could try all sorts of things like chopped candied ginger or you could even steep a tea bag (peppermint or earl grey is great) in the milk.

After 5 minutes, turn off heat and immediately add chocolate, stirring until it melts and the mixture is smooth and glossy.

Pour melted chocolate into a heat-proof bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for one hour (or in the fridge for a few hours).

Place the cocoa powder (or raw cacao) in a shallow bowl, sifting with a fine mesh strainer to remove clumps.

When chocolate is set (you can add a tablespoon of cocoa powder directly to the mixture and stir if it’s still too watery), scoop out 1 tablespoon of the dough at a time, roll into a ball between your palms, and roll in the cocoa powder to coat. Set on a parchment lined tray. Repeat with remaining chocolate and enjoy!

Note: You can also roll them in finely chopped nuts or dried coconut.
