These mushroom chocolate bites can act as a little afternoon pick-me-up or when that dark chocolate craving hits. You can be sure that you are giving your body some clean-burning fuel to give you lasting energy without the sudden crash like most dark chocolate bars gives these days.

  • Dash or two of cayenne powder
  • 2 to 6 Tbsp of coconut oil (dependent upon how much mushroom chocolate you are making)

 

***Add dark chocolate and coconut oil to the pan at a low temperature to slowly melt the chocolate down. Once melted. Add the powders and continue to mix and stir throughout once it is fully mixed in nicely. Once done, add your sweetener of choice and mix again. Once finished. Transfer the chocolate to an ice tray or chocolate mold and place in the freezer. When you are ready to serve. Bring it to room temperature before serving.
