Healthy Hot Cocoa Squares

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 3 Tbsp gelatin 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk powder
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup raw honey (here is how to melt it and retain its benefits)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • pinch sea salt
  • additional coconut oil for greasing baking dish

How you make ’em:

  1. Grease a glass baking dish with coconut oil and set aside
  2. In a small sauce pan, boil 1 1/4 cups water
  3. Then, in a high powered blender, add the gelatin and 1/2 cold water
  4. Allow it to sit and “bloom” for a few minutes — that’s fancy talk for allowing it to gel
    1. Note: I LOVE coconut milk powder and think these are the most delicious with half coconut milk powderand half cocoa powder. If you would like, you can use only cocoa powder for a really chocolatey hot chocolate square. I add the coconut first and top off with the cocoa…
  5. Next, add the rest of the ingredients to the blender
  6. Blend until liquefied
  7. Pour into your greased baking dish
  8. Place into your fridge until set
  9. Slice into cubes and enjoy!
  10. I store mine cut up in a plastic bag for easy access, they last up to one week in the fridge. Makes about 25 one inch cubes.
