Valentine’s Day Protein Chocolates -Five Ways

Valentine’s Day Protein Chocolates -Five Ways

When someone gives you an assorted box of chocolates, it’s hard to know what you’re going to get until you select a chocolate and bite into it. And then it’s too late. You’ve made your selection and now you’re stuck eating it. Of course, you can always bite into each chocolate to see which one you want to eat and leave the rest behind… but this is usually frowned upon. Truth is, getting an assorted box of 100% delicious chocolates is rare. Assorted boxes usually contain one or two really good chocolates, a few OK ones, and a bunch of last in the box chocolates.

But it doesn’t have to be this way, not for you and certainly not for your loved ones. That’s because you can make your own assorted box of chocolates to give to your special someone (or to enjoy yourself because why not?) You can create a box that’ll be guaranteed to impress and satisfy the pickiest of taste buds. You’ll hit the jackpot with every chocolate!

Welcome to this post, featuring not one but FIVE recipes.

2 tablespoons freshly-brewed espresso
1 tablespoon coconut flour

The directions for ALL the chocolates are the same, as are the way they’re coated so we’re giving you one set of directions for all of them. You can change the chocolate (i.e. you can use a darker one if you wish or a more milky chocolate for the coating). You can also top the chocolates with chocolate flakes, coconut flakes, nuts, a bit of white chocolate like we did for some of them, etc. This is up to you. The only thing you NEED to do to make the chocolates is mix your batter, melt some chocolate, stick the chocolate in a chocolate mould, add your filling, cover the filling with more melted chocolate, and chill. It’s honestly REALLY easy. Here’s what you do in more detail:

1. Blend all the batter ingredients with a food processor or handheld blender until you form a smooth and creamy sort of ‘dough.’ If you’re making the tiramisu chocolates, mix the batter roughly with a spoon as opposed to using a blender. That’s because you want the ingredients to mix up a bit more ‘roughly’ so you get more of a texture.

2. Melt a bar of chocolate or two depending on how many chocolates you want. I used 85% dark chocolate but anything about 75% would be great. Melt your chocolate in a bain marie – i.e. a glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water.

3. Get out a silicone chocolate mould or two. If you don’t have one, you can use muffin cases and make ‘chocolate cups’ instead. What you do is pour the melted chocolate on the mould, add a little bit of your filling on top of the melted chocolate, and then cover with the rest of the chocolate.

4. Stick the chocolates in the freezer for an hour until they set.

5. Remove them from their moulds and they’re ready!

Macros per chocolate will depend on the size of mould you use, how many you choose to make, and what type of chocolate you use. The above ingredients give you six chocolates or four ‘cups’ if you make them inside silicone cases.
