Homemade Chocolate

Love chocolate?? So do I!

Luckily I can justify the occasional chocolate treat given the health benefits of cacao. The only issue is that I need to keep it low sugar to keep my inflammation at bay.While there are many brands with a high % cacao to choose from, sometimes, I want something homemade!

Here is a fantastic recipe that can be customized with different toppings to suit your preferences. Enjoy!
