It’s Friday! Whoot whoot! And since I love Fridays, I decided to make these yummylicious chocolate dessert cups because I love the heck outta chocolate ๐Ÿ˜‰ This yummy chocolate creamy dessert can be enjoyed after a meal, or as a sexy dessert for date night, so get naughty ๐Ÿ˜‰ These are also dairy free, paleo, vegan, and nut free! So you really can’t go wrong with it if you have any food intolerances or allergies, and you basically only have to rely on your tastebuds to do the judging. Have a great day everyone! Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

Recipe: makes 8

1/3 cups diary free chocolate chunks (i used enjoy life)
1 can full fat organic unsweetened coconut milk (thai kitchen is a good brand)
1/2 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
Fresh berries
1 organic stevia sachet (or more depending on how sweet you want the cream)

Place coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight (you don’t have to take it out of the can).

Next, melt your chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute. You can add 1/2 tsp coconut oil if you want it smoother.

When melted, place 1 tbsp of chocolate in individual silicone muffin cups. (You could use paper or foil cups, but I find the silicone cups easier to use). Use a pastry brush to evenly spread out the chocolate on all sides of the silicone cups.

Place in the freezer until firm, (mine firmed up in 15 minutes)

Meanwhile, make your coconut whipped cream. Take out your coconut milk from the refrigerator and scoop out the coconut cream from the top of the can, it should have formed a thick cream. Make sure you keep the water at the bottom of the can separate from the cream when scooping it out.

Place your coconut cream in the bowl and whip it with a hand mixer. Add vanilla and stevia and whip again until a whipped texture forms.

Place whipped coconut cream in a pipping bag. You can also place it in a ziplock bag and make a small incision at the tip.

Take chocolate cups out of the freezer and slowly take it out of the silicone cups, (if you take them out un a hurry they will break).

Add the coconut whipped cream into the cups and top with fresh berries.

Enjoy!
