If I can deal with your overwhelming charm, Abi, you can deal with my recipes. :p You're just mad you can't have any. :giggle:

But seriously, once your taste buds get off the fake stuff and used to the real thing, the fake food-like products taste as gross as you're imagining my recipes taste. :cool:

We've changed our diet because my granddaughter is diabetic,

and we actually have all those ingredients on hand ... except the raw honey.

I'm wondering what we could substitute for that?

I just tested mine and holy crap it's good!!! The hubster is impressed, too, and he isn't always that thrilled with some of my "nature-mama" kitchen experiments. :) I sprinkled some mini choc. chips and toasted coconut on it, too. Look out Russell Stover!! ha!

This actually sounds very familiar, I think my daughter made it before.

It was good, but it melts so quickly it was difficult to eat before it melted all over my fingers.

Yeah, the coconut oil melts at room temperature. Finger lickin' good. :)

Another good chocolate bar that sounds unusual is chocolate with hot red chili peppers in it. Actually that is the way the Indians ate it - in savory dishes -- since they didn't have refined sugar. You can get one premade from Lindt of Switzerland.

One of my favorite vendors at the farmers market serves a homemade hot chocolate with cayenne and it's delicious. Helps warm up the innards. :)

Cool! I'm vegan and lactose intolerant, I've tried some salted vegan chocolate and it's pretty good!

The Lindt cayenne chocolate is very dark too, I don't know if it has zero milk products, but it's definitely at least low in them.

Mmm! Yeah, even a tiny bit of milk I have a...let's just say bad reaction to. Lol
