I told you we all had a very sweet tooth - well we've succumbed to cocoa at last! The Men wanted a cream egg, so they got one. They tucked in delightedly while I thought of all the good it was doing them! They could indulge without me having a awful nagging feeling that it wasn't good for them. Why do 'treats' always seem to be those things we know are not good for us? Not this one!
This is basically only sour cream, egg yolk and chocolate, but of course GAPS style.
Want to make one?
First you need a chocolate mould, but any small dish will do. I have a silicon Easter egg mould from Lidl.
you have a choice here. you can find a recipe like this one:
Or you could use my coconut chocolate recipe here.
I used the 'Carob chips' recipe in Nourishing Traditions, only I used cocoa powder, honey and butter melted together. I halved the recipe to make four egg halves. The butter ended up being too much, so I will only use 2 oz next time. It doesn't produce a smooth chocolate mixture, but it hardened up into the freezer and the taste was good enough. Maybe you are more proficient than I am and can use cocoa butter and do a more professional job.
Once the chocolate is set, put each 'egg - half' in a bowl and fill with a scoop of sour cream.
What better to use than egg yolks (organic and pastured eggs), whisked with a little honey and poured over the top!
You can add more honey to adjust sweetness and more/less butter to make a smooth paste.
Looks aren't everything - the chocolate didn't quite come out of the moulds properly, but it's the taste that counts, and this was .....delicious!
And so much better for you!
