have you ever googled the benefits of coconut oil? if it really does all that it's supposed to, shouldn't we be bathing in it and ingesting it daily? it's apparently a miracle substance, and since i've been using it in my beauty regimen, i've really noticed an improvement in my skin and hair.
i've been wanting to find a way to incorporate it into my diet, but i am really partial to cooking with olive oil. my friend melissa came over the other day and whipped up these little cuties for me. they are made with 4 TBL. melted coconut oil, 4 TBL. unsweetened cocoa and 1 TBL. honey, mixed well and frozen in my little heart candy molds. it made about 8. if you don't have a candy mold, just spread on wax paper and freeze for 15 minutes, then break apart and store in the fridge.
it's a nice way to have a "little something" that's 100% healthy and extremely high in antioxidants.
disclaimer: if you do not like DARK chocolate, these aren't for you.
