Homemade Healthy Chocolate Treats
These chocolate sweet treats are the best thing you can do for yourself and your kids! Summer is here so we need to give our bodies good antioxidants to fight those UV rays. If you want to learn more about how this all works, you can tune into my podcast, titled "Natural Cures for Spring's Pesky Problems." Or visit www.AMommyandaMic.com
Not only are these super easy to make, but they are also delicious and a big hit with the kiddos! Take them to the pool or on a picnic. You can make them all types of ways. And be creative with the ingredients. Just be sure to always include a healthy nut or nut butter. Some of my favorites are peanut butter, cashews, or almonds. The combo of crunch and chocolate is delicious!
What you will need:

Place parchment paper on a baking sheet and set aside.
6 oz 100% Cacao unsweetened baking chocolate
6 oz cacao butter
2 Tbsp powdered erythritol
1/4 + 1/8 tsp monk fruit powder
1/4 tsp vanilla
Set up a double boiler to melt the first 2 ingredients together over medium heat. Keep whisking until they melt together completely.
Remove from heat and whisk in erythritol, monk fruit and vanilla.
Pour onto the prepared baking sheet on top of the parchment paper
After you pour the melted chocolate, sprinkle in some almonds and then spread it around. I like to add a sprinkle of sea salt. OOOOH! The salty sweet is so terrific! Once hardened, break off a piece and enjoy!
Peanut Butter Cups
Use a silicone muffin pan to prepare dollops of peanut butter ahead of time. Then pour the melted chocolate right on top of each one. Freeze overnight. YUM! These are my favorite!
Place 3 or 4 cashews in each muffin cup. Pour melted chocolate on top until the cashews are completely covered. Same thing as above, using the silicone muffin pan. Actually, you can do six of PB cups and six of these to get the best of both worlds! Yes, I have done this for variety. Sometimes it is too hard to choose, ya know?
I hope you make these for yourself and your family! Remember to eat a little bit each day to help your body process the sun's harmful rays and protect you from sunburn from the inside out! This recipe is also keto friendly and delicious! Happy Cooking!
