paleo chocolate lover's cookbook

I love chocolate.  I can’t remember a single time in my life when  I could pass up a good piece of chocolate and my husband is the same exact way.  With three Paleo chocolate lovers in the house (What? You think the Little wouldn’t get the gene?) I knew that Kelly’s book The Paleo Chocolate Lovers’ cookbook was going to be a hit.  Kelly also blogs over at The Spunky Coconut so go visit her!

Anyhow, back to me and my adoration of all things chocolate.  I had a really hard time picking what would be the first treat to try but I have a seriously criminal weakness for fudge.   I knew is was fate when I saw the gorgeous recipe in her book.

First, it’s easy to make and even easier to eat.   I ate over half the pan – don’t judge o.k.    Every time I took a bite, I felt like I was eating rich dark chocolate ice cream. Nom nom!

    I learned (and love) that the recipes use dates and some stevia to keep the honey, coconut sugar and the like to a minimum. 🙂

    There is a misconception that chocolate is only for desserts. No way, as Kelly proves. She also includes chocolate in entrees, which is divine!

      It has said “twitter tweet confirmed”………….I have NOT twittered it yet today. what is going on? I think I may have been off a letter in my email address yesterday but it was yesterday so why isn’t it accepting the tweet for today? I did it earlier in the evening yesterday not at midnight where there would be confusion. It’s also not showing my mandatory entry from above. Please advsie- thanks!

      • November 4, 2013 at 11:02 am

        Hi Cindy, it may be a little behind because of DST. Also, It has a 24 hour window so try later in the day.

        • Cindy S.
          November 4, 2013 at 10:15 pm

          Hi Kelly, Well, it accepted my one entry – the mandatory one BUT, it still said twitter “tweet” confirmed and I DID NOT tweet today so I actuallly lost 5 entries with it not working right. I waited the “24 hrs.” too.

          • November 5, 2013 at 10:39 am

            Cindy, I am so sorry! I will see if there is anything I can do on my end.

  • Cindy S.

    • Cindy S.
      November 6, 2013 at 10:48 pm

      Well, it did it again………..I waited the “24 hr window” and it’s only accepting the mandatory entry. It says Twitter tweet confirmed BUT I never tweeted yet…………I always do the mandatory entry first so that I have access to the twitter screen to log in the entry – I think it’s the Url..something like that. Anyway, doesn’t make sense why it won’t let me do this. Again, missing the 5 entries. oh well………………

  • November 7, 2013 at 11:32 am

    It wouldn’t let me do the twitter again. It said I already tweeted but I didn’t! I entered the mandatory entry & then was going to do twitter. If it’s something with the “24 hr” window then shouldn’t it have not accepted my entry for the mandatory entry???? crazy………….

    • November 9, 2013 at 7:06 pm

      Cindy, I’m talking to the company that created the form. I’m hoping to add the entries you missed. I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this hun. Also, I would try to only enter on your desktop not mobile device.

        November 10, 2013 at 11:07 am

        Kellly, I think I finally figured out the problem yesterday………….Between the Daylight Savings Time and/or it’s the difference between Eastern Time & Pacific Time. I’m thinking this is originating from ET time & I’m on Pacific Time. I think that has something to do with it. But it still didn’t make sense as I could log in the mandatory but not the twitter……But yesterday I did an earlier time and it worked some how. I know earlier you had said to wait 24 hr window. I will probably try entering my last entry this afternoon. Thanks Kelly for your help.

        • Cindy S.
          November 10, 2013 at 11:09 am
