Merry Raw Chocolate Covered Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you are enjoying wonderful celebrations with family and friends.

As you saw in my last post, it's been a raw chocolate factory around here lately after my long hiatus. It's so fun to be at it again, creating choccie goodness. I've been pumping out various truffles, clusters, bark, and brittle. Here's a taste if what I've been up to...

Chocolate bark with macadamia nuts, dried cherries, figgies, and almonds. 
This is so easy to make, it's just basic dark chocolate from my Just Desserts ebook with the fruits and nuts folded in, spread in a pan and broken apart.

Black and white truffles: Dark chocolate and white chocolate superfood truffles.

Assorted choccie truffles: peppermint, almond, pomegranate goji berry, coconut, orange, and dark chocolate superfood.

A reminder that my 30% off Holiday book sale is on for 2 more days, until December 28.

Have a wonderful rest of the holiday!

Glad you are enjoying the holidays.
As per Denyse, I need to stay away from nuts and cocoa (and other stuff) for a while.
I was in terrible, terrible pain all last night and this morning with constipation.
I hope something happens soon...its so painful that I could cry.
Funny enough, Denyse has all the recommendations for lots of yogurt, eggs, meats at every meal, etc...which normally people say will actually constipate you...I just hope it works.
I feel almost like I need a detox from animal products first, but she didn't say anything about that.

Something has got to give. I'm losing hope and awfully uncomfortable. I'm still eating a lot of fruit. Maybe 3 servings of that a day.

I wish somebody would send me raw chocolates like them for Christmas! I got lots of cheap deodrant sprays and a nestle selection box.

They look amazing!

What a beautiful spread! I've had a little chocolate factory up here too: cold as it is here and with no running water, it's quite a challenge but I'm just posting some creations on my blog. They don't look as professional as yours but they were well enjoyed.

The whole time I was making them, I had no appetite for them at all, which made me a little sad, since even my ND had said to eat some of my 'not-supposed-to' foods over the holidays. But today I'm finally enjoying them a bit: maybe because I'm not so manic in the kitchen!

Do you find that too--that you lose your appetite when you're prepping up a storm?

Happy peaceful love-filled holidays to you!

Wishing you a Happy New Year full of chocolate and all good things

Hi there. Beautiful it all is! I wondered which book the mulberry goji crunch recipe is in? Also the truffles and stuff? Thank you!
