Raw Cacao, Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut No-Bake Pots

It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m always on the lookout for delicious recipes to help me make the most of my every indulgence.

 

My little no-bake pots are crammed with delicious and clever ingredients that are good for your love life and your heart. It’s no secret that chocolate is an aphrodisiac as well as a mood and libido enhancer, and that mega-superfood raw cacao is rich in flavanols and powerful antioxidants that may protect against cardiovascular disease, reduce the risk of stroke and help boost blood circulation.

These raw cocoa no-bake pots are also impossibly tempting with their silken smoothness, impressive richness and depth of flavor and ease of making. And they’re GOOD FOR YOU. I think of them as the energy bullet of desserts—sure to please your loved ones, no matter what color, gender or age they happen to be.

Happy Valentine to all of you lovely ladies!
