Do you like a bit of chocolate on the odd occasion?
I like a bit of chocolate on the odd occasion. I don’t like to admit it though. I actually have some kind of phobia in my sub-conscious that prevents me from admitting I like chocolate (or anything sweet, really), hence the lack of sweet stuff, except possibly my words, on this blog. I like to pretend I don’t have any sort of sweet tooth and have done so for ages… ever since I had a tooth pulled out because it was rotting away due to my excessive consumption of chocolate. Oh yes, I was once a fiend for sweet chocolaty goodness. Point being; every now and then I feel the urges of someone who needs a chocolate fix… and they need it now.
This is what I have started doing when I feel those ungodly desires. Firstly, I kneel down and pray for my chocolate endorsing soul. The second thing I do is push my unholy soul deep into my sub-conscious and make me some almost healthy rocky road.
All you need is some dark chocolate in the cupboard (for making cakes and shit, eh) and some healthy things like nuts and seeds and dried fruit, just so you feel a little better about the whole thing… and having some kind of trail mix rocky road kicks ass over a piece of plain chocolate for me any day. It’s kind of like sex without a condom; the two really can’t be compared!
ALMOST HEALTHY ROCKY ROAD TYPE THING
1 cup of mixed nuts (I go with brazil nuts and sunflower seed to trick my mind into thinking I am a good boy), chopped
½ cup mixed dried fruit (I had goji berries and sultanas), once again to make your brain think you are being healthy
1 cup good dark chocolate
• Combine nuts and fruit in a bowl
• Melt chocolate
• Combine the lot and mix until combined
• Spread onto a tray/plate lined with baking paper
• Allow to set in the fridge for 15-20 minutes
• Chop and try a piece… and then have another piece… and then another
