Chocolate Blueberries and Hazelnuts

Here is a recipe that a client of mine passed on to me. You can do it with any fruit or nuts you desire. It is really a great way of making your own chocolate treat and it's more healthy than buying it from the store.

Enjoy this amazing treat as a dessert or a healthy snack.

Chocolate Blueberries and Hazelnuts

Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:05 minutes

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
coconut nectar or crystals or stevia to taste
4 tablespoons raw powdered cacao
1/4 cup unrefined raw coconut oil
1/2 cup blueberries -- washed
1/4 cup hazelnuts -- ground into small pieces in food processor

Place the coconut oil in a small saucepan and melt. Do not boil, keep the heat low.

Add the cacao and stir in and then add the sweetener of your choice until it tastes sweet enough.

Depending on your taste either add the blueberries and hazelnuts together in a small dish or do them separately, its easiest if you use some unbleached parchment paper to set the chocolate mixture on. Then pour the coconut cacao mixture over the berries and nuts making sure that they are covered.

Place in the fridge for between thirty minutes to one hour and let them set hard.

Remove from fridge and eat as a dessert or sweet treat or snack.

NOTES : Coconut oil is really amazing, it can be heated to higher heats than olive oil and it sets hard in temperatures below 72 degrees. Coconut is anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral. Also it contains lauric acid. The only other thing that contains lauric acid it mothers milk.
