Show Real Love with Real Food this Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day is often heralded by cloyingly sweet chocolates and mountains of red décor at supermarkets. This year, show your sweetheart or sweet kiddos your affection with superfood treats with health benefits as well as superior flavor!
ECO dark, raw chocolate is loaded with antioxidants, and is low-glycemic to reduce that ‘sugar crash’ often associated with traditional chocolates. Not to mention, it is sustainably grown and processed by a Bali, Indonesia growers cooperative, with fair trade practices supporting over 14,000 small organic farms. You can grab an 8 oz. chocolate round right from the shelf and surprise your special someone with the decorative box, or check out this easy recipe for creating your own superfood dark chocolate right at home! This super easy recipe can put a home-made, thoughtful touch to any Valentine’s gift or create a fun day at home creating sweet treats together.
Easy, At-Home Gourmet Chocolate
- Chop or grate the chocolate round into small pieces.
- Place chocolate in a double boiler or glass bowl over a small pot of simmering water and melt at low temperature.
- Pour into chocolate molds and cool in refrigerator until hardened.
Add your favorite ECO super fruits for flavor and nutrient boost, like goji berries, golden berries, mulberries. Or add a few teaspoons of superfood powders for different flavors and affects: maca powder provides a kick of extra energy; lucuma powder can add a touch of milk chocolate texture; adding a touch of honey or coconut palm syrup can provide a bit of extra sweetness; sprinkling sea salt over the chocolate as it cools adds a gourmet touch to your dessert. The possibilities are endless; you can truly make it your own!
