What? Valentine's Day is long past? Or passed ... ? Either way, it's over. I discovered that my fancy new camera makes much larger video files than the old one, so my planned video recipe for Valentine's Day was postponed until I also upgraded to a new computer ... which can now handle just about anything I ask of it. Yay :)
So, better late than never, here is a recipe and recipe video for Chocolate Cherry Dipped Brownie Hearts. They're a healthy treat for you or your sweetie any day of the year :)
- 1 cup cashews
- 1 cup dates
- 1/2 cup dried cherries
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- pinch salt
- 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons cacao powder
- 3 tablespoons finely ground coconut palm crystals
Place all brownie ingredients into a food processor fitted with an "S" blade. Process until finely ground and mixture begins to stick together. Sprinkle a little cacao powder on parchment paper and roll out the brownie "dough." Use cookie cutters or a similar tool to cut shapes. Hearts are nice!
Place brownies in the freezer to firm, and make the chocolate dip!
Mix together all the chocolate dip ingredients. Dipped the chilled hearts in the chocolate dip, coating the bottom, then place on a plate in the freezer to harden. Pour any unused chocolate into candy molds.
And here's the recipe video! My other passion, beside healthy vegan food, is art ... so the second half of the video is a short painting "tutorial-ish" kind of thing.
