Everyone loves a good healthy chocolate recipe. By good, I mean; it tastes good, it’s good for you and you don’t have you spend a ton of time in the kitchen creating it. These delicious Nut Pucks will curb sugar cravings, replace nutrients lost from sugar consumption and won't harm your body.
HEALTHY CHOCOLATE COATING
In a double boiler (or a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water) melt coconut oil, add maple syrup and whisk to combine.
When completely homogenous (well blended), remove from heat and sift in cacao powder, lacuma powder, and add sea salt.
Fill silicon moulds or paper muffin cups with enough liquid chocolate to cover the bottom, about 2-3 mm in depth. You want just enough to cover and have a base that holds the chocolate but not too much as you have the majority of the chocolate covering the top of the nut pucker dough.
Place in the fridge or freezer and cool until solid, about five minutes.
NUT PUCKER DOUGH
Make the nut pucker dough by combining the remaining ingredients until a “dough ball” is formed. Add salt to taste and don’t worry if you can taste the salt as it provides a great contrast to the chocolate coating.
Roll the dough into chickpea (or bigger if you prefer more filling) size balls.
Place a ball on the chocolate base and gently flatten them not touching the edges of the cup, leaving enough room around the edges for the chocolate to fill in.
Pour just enough liquid chocolate to cover the nut pucker dough, making sure to cover the filling completely. Place in the freezer to harden for 30 minutes.
The nut pucks are ready to remove when they easily release from the moulds. If not, just pop them back in the freezer until they do.
This recipe will be a HUGE hit and a huge revelation for those who don’t believe you could make a healthy chocolate recipe so delicious!
