Yeah, I know those are a lot of quotation marks but OREO is a trademark and Skinny Chocolate is a chocolate recipe made by Trim Healthy Mama, so I’m just covering my bases. I also know that this picture is not pretty but I don’t care, I wanted to share this pronto.
So here’s the deal, this is a healthy homemade chocolate candy that tastes like Oreo cookies but is made with the same simple, healthy ingredients that the THM Skinny chocolate is made from.
I never realized that Oreos got their taste from . . . get this . . . BLACK COCOA! Yeah, I went out on a limb after watching this youtube video by Marissa and this one by Lindsey and ordered the recommended black cocoa from amazon.
I got it in time for my birthday this last weekend and Tiffany promptly made some for us. OMG!!!! This stuff tastes like Oreos! So now I am going to try out Kristie Sullivan’s oreo type cookie from her Gatherings cookbook and use this black cocoa in it; I just know it is going to be amazing because if coconut oil, sweetener, and black cocoa powder can taste like an Oreo, then I am sure that the cookie using this black cocoa is going to be amazing.
So, don’t hesitate, head on over to youtube and watch how easy this candy is to make.
Oh, we don’t melt the coconut oil. Because the current temperature is a bit warm, our coconut oil is soft but not liquidy. Consequently Tiffany just mixes it with the other ingredients and the spreads it onto a parchment paper lined plate and puts it into the freezer until it solidifies. Then we just break off what we want and enjoy.
Yeah, I know the cocoa is expensive but it is worth it!
