Chocolate has said to be the food of love, and to be honest I finally understand why. Chocolate releases dopamine also known as the “feel-good” hormone, which plays an important role in the way we feel pleasure. Dopamine plays a role in a number of factors in the body but one of its most notable traits is increasing pleasure and reward seeking behavior. Simply put, this means that chocolate can produce a natural “high”, improving a person’s mood and opening them up to love.

The word chocolate comes from the Greek saying, ‘Theobroma cacao’ which translates to “food for the Gods”. If chocolate is food fit for a God, then it’s a great way to show your appreciation for your loved ones. These decadent truffles are perfect for Valentines’ day. They were such a hit for our cooking event I had to share the recipe with the rest of you.

1/2 cup coconut milk 

1 tablespoon coconut oil 

½ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon salt 

225 grams chocolate roughly chopped 

Ingredients for toppings:

¼ cup desiccated coconut

1 tablespoon chilli flakes mixed with 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 

¼ cup cocoa powder 

Method:

1.     Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

2.     In a small saucepan heat the coconut milk, oil, salt and cinnamon. Whisk to mix. 

3.    Place the chocolate in a medium bowl and pour the warm milk mixture over the chocolate. Mix with a spoon until combined.

4.     Refrigerate for 20-25 min until it has set and is scoopable.
