Raw Cacao, Dark Chocolate and Hazelnuts No-Bake Pots

It’s Valentine and I’m always on the look out for delicious recipes to help us make the most of our every indulgence.

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

There you have it, my raw cocoa no-bake pots are silky rich, deep in flavor and they are easy to make and GOOD FOR YOU. I think of them as the energy bullets of desserts – sure to please your loved ones, no matter what color, gender or age they happen to be.

  1. Place the raw cacao, the pieces of chocolate and the hazelnuts in a food processor.

  3. Add the cooled off cream and milk mixture to the chocolate and hazelnuts with the motor running and process until smooth. Keep the motor running and add the egg, vanilla and salt.
  4. Pour the mixture into 8 ramekins, small espresso cups or cute shot glasses.
