Better than Gourmet Organic Chocolate Bars: A Great Alternative for Chocolate Month!

Organic chocolate bar recipe

I’m sensing another recipe video on the way…   I had a chance to play around with the chocolate again, (and to clarify that was in the kitchen) and I have to say this recipe turned out pretty extremely delicious, so I thought I’d post it here in case anyone wanted to give it a try before the video is ready.  If you love chocolate, it really is worth it!

Roasted almond chocolate bars are one of my favorite chocolate bars, and after having had such good results with our chocolate almond brownie fudge recipe, better known on Youtube as the World’s Best Chocolate Almond Brownie Fudge, I started wondering if it would be possible to recreate roasted almond chocolate bars, but an improved version using the high quality chocolate or cacao powder that contains all of the nutrients real chocolate is supposed to contain ie. magnesium, chromium, iron, bliss chemical …  As it turns out, it’s more than possible, tastes amazing and is really very easy to do.

Organic Goji Berry Vodka Martini – a Cocktail with Benefits???

If you’re looking for a cocktail to serve during the festivities this holiday season, the Organic Goji Berry Vodka Martini is a perfect option.  It’s festive, delicious and potentially nutritious, thus the benefits!  Though we’re not making any health claims, alcohol is known to extract nutrients and Goji Berries are packed full of nutrients.  There is a reason why they are considered the number one food in the Traditional Chinese Medicine system.  Soaking the Organic Goji Berries in the Organic Vodka allows the vodka to take in the various nutrients found in the goji berries, so the longer you can let them soak, the better – a few hours is good but overnight is better!

What you end up with is a tart, yet slightly sweet refreshing cocktail.  The color makes it perfect for the holiday season but it’s also a refreshing option on those hot summer days!

Let us know what you think if you get a chance to try it!
