Homemade Cacao Bliss

I've lately found a new obsession: Artisana Cacao Bliss. If you've never had it, let me explain. It is a delicious, rich, chocolate butter that has the texture of frosting. Quite a decadent dessert's in the running for one of my favorite spreads, even nudging Nutella for the top spot. This spread is great on bread, or eaten my favorite way -- scooped with a spoon and eaten straight up! A homemade jar of this stuff would be an awesome gift for a choco-holic! Best of all, it's actually not too shabby in the health department -- coconut oil is one of the most healthy oils, so relax! Have your chocolate and do some good for your body. It is also far less expensive to make this than buy ($9 a jar? Really?). The recipe is extremely simple as well.

Adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie

4 tbsp melted coconut oil (I bought mine at Whole Foods)
1/3-1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp agave syrup

In a bowl, mix everything together, then store at room temp in a jar. I keep my leftover jam jars around for this reason. :) Enjoy!
