Low Carb Hot Chocolate Recipe: Coconut Dark Chocolate Deliciousness!

hot-chocolateThis past week my little neck of Rhode Island got a few feet of snow. With the snow drifts caused by wind, there were parts of the driveway we shoveled that were almost over our heads. I’m not especially tall, but that’s a lot of snow!

After the second day of snow and wind, and shoveling and then re-shoveling the snow when it blew back into place (us New Englanders shovel every couple of hours during a storm!) I thought I deserved some damn hot chocolate!

dagoba chocodropsAlso, get yourself some Dagoba Organic 73% Cacao Chocodrops. They’re the bomb and have only 5 netcarbs for 15 large chips.

So I cooked up this little recipe, and it was lovely. It has 5 total net carbs, all from the dark chocolate chips.

Step 1 says to heat the coconut almond oil, is that supposed to be the milk? By the way I just bought your cookbook, I"m so excited to try the recipes! We are making the Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken right now for dinner.

@wickedstuffed Thank you, I love the recipes in the cookbook and I am really enjoying your blog, I feel for the first time I might actually be able to get my weight off and keep it off. 

In the past I've ended up on just chicken, lettuce and broccoli until I was sick of it.

Can you clarify - is the almond coconut milk an ingredient you make or can you purchase it?

Sorry, is the milk a mix of almond and coconut milk, or is it either almond or coconut? Thanks!

could I use any good chocolate bar with a similar cocoa percentage?  do you know how many grams 1 Tbsp of these drops is equal to? I'm looking for a hot morning drink to have instead of BPC. Want to avoid coffee but can't stand cream/butter in tea.

@nita seguin not necessarily, the Dagoba brand has 5 net carbs for one tablespoon or 15 grams.

I think the time may be off a bit! More like 15 minutes than hours, I expect..
