This is a chocolate spread recipe that I make often and all my family (including wife and kids) like, enough so that it's almost the only chocolate spread we eat (and very seldom purchased ones).

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • 100 gram sugar
  • 20 gram cocoa powder
  • 2 gram salt
  • 200 gram milk
  • 100 gram dark chocolate, 60% cocoa
  • 250 gram raw tahini, or 200 gram natural peanut butter, or a mix

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Put the  sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a pot and mix.
  2. Add part of the milk and mix, then add the rest
  3. Put on the stove and heat. Mix often, until the sugar dissolves into the milk.
  4. Add the chocolate and mix until it's liquid/dissolved
  5. Turn off the stove, add the tahini/peanut butter and mix
  6. Put in some closed container, in the fridge.
  7. We usually keep it for up to around two weeks. I think it never spoiled.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • You should obviously not treat it as a "healthy food" - but as a "healthier chocolate spread". As that, I think it's reasonably good - not too much work, costs similarly to cheaper bought spreads, and is hopefully a bit healthier.
  • Most of it we actually eat not spread on bread slices (although that too), but as an addition to oats porridge. This is our main breakfast for several years now: 350 gram oats, 1 litre milk, 0.5 litre water, boiled for 5-10 minutes, then add ~ 150-170 gram of the spread. And some fresh cut vegetables, to make it a bit healthy
