Today the other women on the vacation here with me on island got as giddy as I did when one of them (I think it was Kristel?) suggested lavender CHOCOLATE. Trouble was, we weren’t really sure how to do it! We went searching on the web and found out the method… then we jumped right in playing with measurements. Here is about what we came up with:
3/8 cup melted cacao butter
1/4 cup coconut nectar
3/8 cup cacao powder
1 Tbsp lavender flowers
Blend the cacao butter, coconut nectar, pinch salt, and lavender flowers together until smooth. Pour into a bowl and add the cacao powder. Whisk it smooth with a fork, then pour into molds and freeze for a few minutes to harden.
Optional: Add a few bits of lavendar flowers to the bottom of each chocolate serving. (We did this and liked it!)
Any other food ideas on what to do with fresh lavender?? Let us know if you have any — we have plenty left and would love to make some magic with it!!
