Ghee Chocolate

Ghee Chocolate Final

 

Do you want life to become too easy when it comes to chocolate?

 

Mine is.

 

Let me convert you to my ways.

 

My blisffully deep, chocolate coated and soaked ways.

 

Your brain and mouth shall be ours and so much chocolate will take you into it that you’ll be licking through the cocoa’s melted bliss for hours. Then you’ll realize you never want to escape, and sink in, and be ours forever.

Chocolate drives me insane.

Okay so ghee chocolate. I was going to make a too easy coconut oil chocolate recipe. I just mix a 1:1 ratio of coconut oil and cocoa powder together and it is all my body wants for hours. I feel so synchoronized with it. My body understands it, and has even mapped it in my brain with a permanent spot. Oh yes. Your body maps the nutrients you give it like connections to life. It’s like when you search for someone in a room and find them. Your brain just has these maps of resources. Where’s Waldo but for food.

My most potent brain map connections are to meat, oils, fats and cocoa powder. To combine oil, or any fat, with cocoa, is just a mind symphony reaching through my brain. It connects. My taste explodes with the flavor it knows, and I’m in bliss.

Ghee chocolate was a spontaneous desire and it was so delicious and looked so beautiful I just had to share it with you. It has a more buttery taste than the coconut oil, but I really enjoy it. The taste is a bit more like browned crispy butter fondling chocolate. I love it. In fact, I’m about to go make some more. I might not even chill it.

Update:

I didn’t. It’s incredible both ways. Try it both soft and hard.

Ingredients:

1:1 Ratio of Ghee and Cocoa

You can even turn life to epic mode and make ghee yourself.

I use this cocoa. To make your own go to cherry forest.

This will taste bitter at first, but your mouth and taste buds will adjust through time. Have a bit of it and let it be bitter, then add in a bit of sweetener and decrease each day so you can get closer and closer to cocoa.

Directions:

Mix together and refrigerate to desired consistency. I like mine about thirty minutes in between soft and hard.

You can also use this as a glaze or pour it over ice cream. I just love it straight. It’s as good as a shot of Lagavulin, and I don’t type that lightly.

Roasted Macadamia Nut Butter

Just like the Brazilian the macadamia nut just loves to be buttered. There’s something glorious about the way it pulverizes into a smooth bliss cream that makes you want to have it again and again and again until it soaks everything you own and gets trapped under mouthgasming sheets.

Food is just sexy.

Macadamia nuts are soaked in nutrients that other nuts just don’t have.

Most nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, and cashews) are higher in Omega-6 fats that cause inflammation. Inflammation is linked, by some scientific humans, to anxiety and depression. They are definitely not the most mind lingering loves and should be consumed in minimal doses. Outside of studies I’m sure you know how gross it feels to be bloated and that beer guts are naturally unattractive. Hello inflammation.

Macadamia is boosted with healthy fats and only has .36 grams of Omega-6 fats per handful (about 1/4 cup). This is compared to the almond at 3.4g. Macadamias are high in monounsaturated fat. This is the fat you find in avocados and olive oil, which by now I hope all humans consider healthy. For more information on macadamia nuts click or touch this word.

Now this butter. It uses preroasted macadamia nuts that I purchased from Sincerely Nuts. I plan to make a raw batch soon as I much prefer the flavor. This flavor is almost savory and has a sweet depth to it your mouth just gets soaked in. I might try and use for a nutmeg or garam marsala fudge. Maybe even as a nut sauce in some Asian dishes. Such noms to come.

The Taste

Savory sweet and my top mouth favorite when it comes to nut butters. Definitely the smoothest butter and tasty enough you’ll just have to try it. If you regret it just send the butter my way and I’ll send some dollars.

Ingredients:

   3 Cups of Macadamia Nuts

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla (optional) or Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla

1/2 to 1 Teaspoon of Ceylon Cinnamon (Optional)

To Create:

   1.   Put all of the Ingredients into a food processor.

 2.   Pulse for three minutes, or even less depending on the consistency you want.
