Lemon & walnut dark chocolate recipe

Lemon and walnut dark chocolate recipe - Kittenhood

Put yourself in the following situation: you have a sweet tooth but you don’t like the chocolate you have at hand. It’s plain and kind of boring. I don’t blame you, you want to indulge in it and have it melt in your mouth, so you can taste every single bit of cocoa in it! The only sane step to take is to improve your chocolate because you’re a big girl and you can do that. The only ingredient you really need for that it coconut oil (known to be a miracle-worker in the kitchen as well as in beauty products these days). The others – you can improvise depending on what you have in your pantry. For me, that was walnuts and lemon, which turned out to be a winner combination. I wonder if any chocolate brands out there are already marketing this. If not, you saw it here first!

  • I’ve gotta find coconut oil, and it’s not been easy. I’m a chocolate person, with no doubt, but I’m in a certain level that just not any chocolate can please my mouth and my mind 🙂

    • You should try one of those natural products shops, where they sell herbal medicine and health foods 🙂 it’s really useful for cooking, too.

      • Yeah, I’ve tried only one and it didn’t had. I shall try another one that’s better 🙂

  • Wow – this looks simple and tasty!
