Funny story…  I once dreamt that melted chocolate worked as both a skin bronzer and moisturizer!  🍫

Wanna know what happened next?

Yep.  I rubbed that shizz all over my body  😏

Ugh, but then I woke up and I wasn’t completely covered in chocolate.  What a let down.

But don’t worry.  Even though chocolate doesn’t tan your skin and it (most likely?) doesn’t replace moisturizer, you can still eat it.

GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME  😎

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Fill the bottom portion of a double boiler with 2-3” of water.  Make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the double boiler insert!  Place over a stove set to medium heat.
  2. While the water heats up, add the cacao butter in the double boiler insert.  Whisk occasionally until completely melted.  Turn the stove off.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the erythritol, cocoa powder and xanthan gum.  Whisk the dry ingredients into the melted cacao butter 1 spoonful at a time.
  4. Whisk in the stevia extract.
  5. Let cool slightly.  Coat your goodies then place in the fridge to firm up.

  1. Haha! That dream! Now that’s funny right there, I don’t care who you are. Perfect recipe with Valentine’s Day coming up this weekend. 🙂

  2. We all need a little chocolate coating in our lives, especially when the chocolate coating is guilt-free!

  3. LOL! I would’ve been thrilled if it actually was good for the skin! But eating it is even better!
