Homemade Chocolate

 

Happy Valentine's day, my friend!

Today is a wonderful day that helps us remember God wants us to love one another. It’s not just about romance and having a partner. Love is so much more than that.

Love is the most important thing in Christianity. 1 John 4:8 says,

"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love."

I’ll be sharing my love for you today, I'm going to share a homemade chocolate recipe!

It's super simple, delicious, and fully customizable. Perfect for any special occasion and sure to impress that special someone. And that special someone can be a neighbor, family member or friend!

I've even included a graphic for you, which I loved making.

I first came across this recipe by word of mouth from one of my regular customers. He shared it with me, but add a superfood powder to give it some flavor instead of vanilla extract. He also adds popped quinoa! I did not know you could even pop quinoa. Originally, he found the recipe off of wellness mama, and I went to her website for the instructions.

For my recipe, I use a popped rice cereal instead of quinoa, since hubby and I are more likely to eat that instead of quinoa. I also use the cereal in Rachel Mansfields Butterfinger recipe, which is to die for!

I hope you enjoy!
