I put it all in a bowl and mixed it with the back of a spoon. It was nice and bitter, a little sweet and creamy and salty.

My girlfriend thinks I'm nuts. But it was SO good!

How do I tell her that I'm not killing myself with the butter? Other people are starting to get worried about the amount of cholesterol they think I'm eating.

Also, I'm thinking about making a big batch and putting it in some little square molds or fancy ice cube trays and setting it in the freezer. MMmmmm...chocolate butter!

@Futureboy, maybe coconut, chopped nuts and a bit of honey, packed firm and baked for 10-15min?

is there anything Paleo that you could add to mimic a rice-crispy? I've been wracking my brain, but can't come up with anything. Nuts I guess? Maybe walnuts?

People, when you downvote, leave a comment. Upvoted therefore.

I'll try to be as clear as possible. What is your question ? Or what is the purpose of your question ? To share a a dessert or ? This is not a newbie witchhunt despite me writing more or less exact thing in another thread which is, ironically, also someones first post.

e.g. "Paleo Desserts" or whatever. My answer about leading by example was related to "How to convience" for which I though was the main idea of your question.

maybe I'm deviating from the "pure" purpose of the site...but as I've been reading I've been noticing that so do many other users. No room for multiple part questions here? I don't think what I wrote was all that confusing, I think you're just nitpicking me because it was my first question. No one else seemed to have a problem with it...well, except for the person that voted me down/doesn't like chocolate.

That second sentence doesn't make all that much sense to anyone. "put" should be "food". The reason I was/am a little confused because your thread title is impliying that you are asking if xxx is Paleo, while further you write "How do I tell her that I'm not killing myself with the butter?". That's also the only question in your text so well, what is actually your question ? Sharing a newly created dessert is nice but with PaleoHacks expanding daily, I believe it would be better, if those kind of inventions would be posted under already existing threads with more defined tags/titles/content

I know about tags. She tasted it...she liked it. I told her, "If you had a chocolate cake, and took out the flour and eggs, this is basically what you would have." How is that not by example?

I make that for a work snack on third shift(we don't get real breaks or lunches,and sometimes you just have to quickly eat something in between customers).Melt it all together,freeze on wax paper.Sometimes I put tahini on it, too.

I'm a little confused by this question.

Firstly "paleo" is a vast term therefore stucking some put into a certain frame might be counterproductive.

Secondly, if you are worried about cholesterol, here are all the PaleoHacks threads tagged "cholesterol".

http://paleohacks.com/questions/tagged/cholesterol#axzz1GfBk2Tij

And don't try to convert people to paleo by words/studies/etc. Lead by example. "Eat good, look good, feel good"*. People will/may follow but in any case I presume it will beat any meta analysis on "insert contraversial nutrition topic".

Or watch the movie Fathead with your girlfriend. Free on Hulu. Also on NetFlix

*Hopefully

I don't know the answer to your question, but that concoction might even be better than coconut oil, cocoa and honey. :-)

My wife and I do variations on this all the time. We mostly use coconut oil as the fat though instead of butter. Also, I like to add carob sometimes, and I've found that the carob is so much less bitter than cocoa that I don't even need honey. Ergo making the carob variant just that much lower in carbs. As far as calling it "paleo," or not--I don't worry about that because I'm more into pleasing my body's natural needs than catering to my brain's sense of historical aesthetic.
