DOUBLE CHOCOLATE SQUARES – FLUFFY CHOC MALLOW AND COCONUT
June 12, 2012 in Recipe
So life throws you ingredients and I bake…
I was sent some products from Wellness Warehouse ( I always try to disclose when I get stuff for free) they were kind enough to chat to me about what I liked and didnt just guess what they thought I should have… So it was nice to say things like I use coffee beans instead of already ground coffee as I have a coffee grinder and like to grind mine fresh. See its the little things that count.
Anyway one of the things I thought would be cool to try was cacao nibs – I have been dying to try these for a while but haven’t forked out the money because I wasn’t sure if I’d like them. Well now was my chance to get my hands on some.
I am happy to say I love them and will purchase them again when mine run out. Cacao nibs are filled with antioxidants and are healthy for you.
On a side note: cacao nibs should be paired with a NATURAL sweetener to taste good – they are bitter! But with some sweet natural almonds (or sugar) it becomes super yummy as they balance each other out.
Anyway I decided to bake a double chocolate cookie bar from scratch and placed a whole bunch of ingredients on my kitchen counter that I thought I would need and worked from there.. tasting and mixing as I went along.
This biscuit/ cookie bar is what I came up with and is made in 2 parts – but is quite quick to whip up – just a little patience is needed at the very end when they sit in the oven to cool! but they are worth it. You could try eat them straight away but they are better if you do wait
