I reblog this every time it comes up on my dashboard, not because it is a “rule” but because every time I see it the love and sincerity on her face hit me all over again and I think everyone deserves to see that.
And THIS is why I adore Catherine Tate. She’s loud and brash but in quieter moments… her soul comes shining through and it makes everything about her so much more beautiful.
Recipe: 3/4 Cup Raw Cacao powder 1/4 Cup Cacao Butter, melted 1/3 Cup Coconut Oil 1 Tbsp. Coconut Butter 4 Tbsp. Liquid sweetener (I used honey, but feel free to use whatever you prefer) 1/8 tsp. Sea salt 1/2 tsp Vanilla, or flavouring of choice Extra cacao for dusting
Procedure: Melt the cacao butter, coconut butter, coconut oil, sweetener, and salt over a double boiler (or a metal bowl on top of a pot of boiling water). Once everything is melted, stir in cacao powder and flavouring. Stir vigorously, as the liquid sweetener is heavier than the other ingredients and will tend to not mix in as easily. Pour chocolate into a standard bread pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Place the pan in the refrigerator to set. Once set, the chocolate can be sliced into cubes and dusted with cacao. Store in the refrigerator for several week, or the freezer for several months.
Sorry for the temptation, but I’m just incredibly psyched to find no-bake recipes. Anyways, no harm in a little indulgence here and there as long as it is in moderation. Also, perfect for gifts to friends on special occasions like x’mas or v’day. You will thank me. You’re welcome.
No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
