There are few people in this world who dislike chocolate. My brother is one of them and let me tell you, I’ve never really understood him. I wish I was one of those people who never craved chocolate. It would make my life a lot easier; less money spent and less fat intake. Unfortunately I am not like that, I’m quite the opposite in fact. I ADORE chocolate. I order anything chocolate, whenever possible of course. Chocolate shakes, chocolate cookies, chocolate ice cream, chocolate protein powder, chocolate coffee (mochas), and the list goes on.
One of my simple pleasures is having plain dark chocolate after a meal. It’s the perfect way to end a meal; it gives it closure, you know? It provides me with full satisfaction and it calms my cravings.
This lovely Paleo Chocolate Bark recipe is a little treasure for those of you who love dark chocolate. If you’re anything like me, you’ll make this bark last a long time; eating it little by little, making sure you savor and enjoy every little bite.
Its super easy to make! You could slightly modify it and add any of your favorite flavors; substitute the macadamia nuts with other types of nuts, coconut flakes or dried fruits. Have fun with it and let your chocolate-creativity shine!
