Easter is on the way, and chocolate is in the air! 😉 Just in case you need some chocolate-making inspo, I’ve gathered a list of our favourite Quirky chocolate recipes! Enjoy ❤️
PS. We now have chocolate-making ingredients in the Quirky Cooking online store – check them out below! Wooo!!
Our Favourite Chocolate Recipes:
- Nutty Chocolate: I would say this is the number 1 favourite chocolate recipe amongst Quirky fans – a deliciously creamy chocolate studded with crunchy roasted nuts. This chocolate is dairy free and honey sweetened. The creamy texture is a result of almond butter, but if you’re nut free don’t despair, you can swap out the almond butter for coconut butter and swap the roasted nuts for roasted seeds. Recipe in our Life-Changing Food cookbook. (See photo above.)
- Dairy-Free Chocolate: This Quirky classic has been around since 2010, and is perfect for those who just want to keep it simple! Dairy free, nut free and sweetened with honey or pure maple syrup. Lots of ideas for additions and ways to use this recipe – one of my favourite being poured over Freeze-Dried Berries!
- Rocky Road: Always a huge favourite (even with the ‘I’m not interested in healthy chocolate’ people)! You can base your rocky road on the Dairy-Free Chocolate recipe for a more crunchy result, or the Nutty Chocolate for a slightly softer result. I’ve even used the Nut Butter Fudge as the base and called it Rocky Road Fudge – so so good!! A detailed recipe is in Simple, Healing Food, or you will find a basic method at the end of my Honey-Sweetened Marshmallows recipe.
- Homemade ‘Ferrero’ Choccies: A decadent little treat for those who absolutely love Ferrero Rocher chocolates but don’t love all the refined sugar, soy, gluten, vegetable oil, fake flavours and other refined ingredients! These morsels of goodness are made from six ingredients and are dairy free (depending on which dark chocolate you use).
- Salted Caramel Chocolates: A delightfully dairy-free treat for those who love a lighter flavoured chocolate (or who prefer caramel)! I love to layer this with dark chocolate in chocolate moulds or swirl through chocolate bark – pretty and delicious.
