Simple 3 ingredent healthy chocolate

One day I thought, 'There must be a way to make my own chocolate'. I could never find all that I wanted in one bar. So whether you don't want the chemicals, don't want to pay over $5 a bar for organic fair trade or simple want a perfect bar made just for you, this recipe is amazing!

Ok so here is what you need:
1/2 cup organic coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup organic fair trade cocoa
maple syrup to taste, about 1/8 cup
chocolate molds. I use a granola bar mold
cayenne pepper 
nuts, crushed

This recipe makes about 10 4x1 inch bars.
Simply mix the coconut oil with the cocoa until smooth. 

Then add other ingredients.
Get creative, marshmallows, peanut butter. I've tried them all. 
Next add them to the freezer. I generally freeze them overnight but because my bars aren't too thick, they only take about an hour. 

To get the chocolate out of a mold like this, I just let them warm up a few minutes at room temp then put the mold face down on a paper towel and gently tap them out.

Last and most enjoyable step, EAT!

**Because of the oil you will need to keep them in the fridge but personally I always preferred cold chocolate**
