Learn how to make Raw Chocolates that are healthy for you and packed full of nutrient-dense superfoods!
You can satisfy your sweet tooth and at the same time flood your body with nutrient dense superfoods and adoptogenic herbs rich in essential fatty acids, minerals, neurotransmitter precursors, hormone precursors and immunity enhancers.
Eating sweets no longer has to be an indulgence that compromises your health and fills you up with unwanted empty calories. These healthy sweets can be a regular staple in your diet that enhance your energy, uplift your mood, nourish your body and crowd out many of the less-than-ideal sweet options available on the market.
Come learn how to create a variety of chocolates that contain so many essential nutrients they can truly be a meal replacement (and often are for us), with no filler ingredients or empty calories. Every single ingredient used satisfies a specific nutrient requirement and gives blissful mood boosts, while at the same time rounding out the decadent flavor and texture of these yummy little morsels!
Here are the Raw Chocolate Varieties we'll be tasting and demonstrating:
Courtney's Cosmic Chocolate Balls (featuring several varieties of a staple recipe)
Chocolate Truffle Candies (plain, peppermint and orange)
Chocolate-Cashew Butter Cups
As always, we will provide an extensive handout full of information, recipes and resource links.

A Special Shout-Out to Courtney Clay whose spirit is with us in this Chocolate Class. Much of what Melissa has learned about making the most awesome, best-ever chocolates started with Courtney.
