How to Make Paleo Chocolate with Coconut Butter

When I think back to elementary school and the movies I saw during that time, I think of a lot:  there was the time they showed us Jaws II in 4th grade. Yeah, kind of bloody and scarring, if you ask me. There was the time they tried to sneak in a sex ed movie in 5th grade that sounded kind of revealing (which is probably why mom thought it was a little early). And of course there was the time (or many times) when we watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

And you know, as much as you might not like the Oompaloompas or the psychadelic theme and colors of the whole thing (or that poor little girl being turned into a blueberry and being rolled away for juicy (mercy! 😵), you, like me, probably have a weakness for those Willy Wonka Bars, that chocolate river, and those unforgettable chocolate golden goose eggs.

But you and I both know that drinking from that infamous chocolate river probably isn’t the best if its filled with GMO soy derivatives, sugar derived from glyphosphate-lathered corn, or any other chemicals even Willy Wonka wouldn’t let his Oompaloompas inhale during their smoke break.

But for we gluten-free/paleo fans who really want our chocolate like the good ole days before the Monsanto corporation had much say about how chocolate was made, there is an answer.

Our team here in Coconut Country thought long and hard about the conundrums of the typical chocolate lover who has a healthy respect for health and healing. And came up with an answer that is HIGHLY addictive 😍  {WARNING, WARNING}.

Of course, I’m talking about making healthy paleo chocolate coconut butter candy.

It’s all part of our latest expedition into the wonderful world of coconut butter.

You see, coconut butter is nothing other than “creamed coconut”. So while we have plenty of raving fans who even claim that our coconut butter is “sweet” (though it has no sugar whatsoever), to tell you the truth, it’s still oil.  Sure, it’s highly functional for losing weight, cooking, baking, for beauty and the rest. But it’s still oil.

Coconut butter on the other hand is really a food in itself.  SOOO many people just eat it off the spoon, but it’s great on bread, great for cookies, as a candy shell, as a dairy/sugar alternative in all sorts of hot drinks, but also to make candies, fudge, and chocolate!

So our dear friend here in Coconut Country, Patti, ventured into the kitchen where she was able to perfect the secrets of making the most tasty paleo chocolate with coconut butter.

You can check out the video below, but we’ve made some further improvements so you can keep your guests coming back for more.
