Apparently women think about chocolate more than men. Some scientists think this is because eating cocoa helps release a calvary of dopamine in the female brain, the same substance release during orgasm. It’s even been suggested that when women eat raw chocolate, it effects activity in the cerebral hemisphere responsible for regulating sexual desire. Only one way to find out… Try this tasty raw cocoa nib fudge recipe! (Recipe taken from Susan Jane White’s The Extra Virgin Kitchen available on Amazon.)
- Melt the date syrup and coconut oil together over a low heat. Add the remaining ingredients, mushing with a fork. Ensure the oil is well mixed. Taste and adjust with vanilla or sweetener. Work quickly, as the oil will begin to separate from the other ingredients as soon as it starts cooling. It needs a warm environment.
- Line a small rectangular container (a little lunchbox perhaps?) with cling film so that it comes out over the sides. Transfer your gorgeous gooey gloss into a lined container and tickle with more cocoa nibs (if you have any left). Transfer to the freezer for 4 hours before indulging. Store it there too as it melts quite quickly at room temperature.
