I tried Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Sugar in a homemade chocolate recipe and it was delicious! It was so easy that my 6 year old daughter helped me make it and all of my kids loved the finished result.
Here is the Homemade Chocolate Recipe:
- 5 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil
- 5 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of Neilsen-Massey Vanilla Sugar
- 1 pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients together and place either in a mold or a tray and then refrigerate for at least 1 hour and tada- Yummy Chocolates – That aren’t too bad for your eating plan either. As long as your not eating the whole tray in one sitting that is!
