Thank YouWhat a wonderful week! I want to thank all of you who helped make my birthday so very special by sharing Chocology with your family and friends! All the birthday wishes on Facebook, Twitter, private messages, Linkedin and Instagram made me smile too. Chocolate lovers are GREAT people! Our Happy Birthday to Me contest was a big hit! Thank you ALL for participating. Chocology would like to congratulate Ted Cart for winning the 24-piece box of Chocology chocolates. And since we had so many entries, we've added a second prize. Gretchen Ting, you've won a Chocology Gift Certificate in the amount of $27.50. Thank you Ted and  Gretchen for helping us spread the word. Be sure to contact me within 48 hours so that we can get you your prizes.

The first is a grain-free low-sugar recipe that is to die for. Originally posted by PaleOMG, it is our go to recipe when we want something healthy and sweet.   [caption id="attachment_495" align="alignleft" width="300"]Paleo OMG Brownie SWEET POTATO BROWNIES[/caption]          

1 sweet potato 3 eggs, whisked ¼ cup Coconut Oil, melted ⅓ cup raw honey ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract 3 tablespoons Coconut Flour 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder ¼ teaspoon baking powder ¼ teaspoon cinnamon pinch of salt ½ cup Chocolate Chips

Instructions:

Bake the sweet potato. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees, use a fork to puncture holes all around it, then throw in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

Once your sweet potato is soft and cooked through, peel off the skin and mash it up in a bowl. Turn your oven down to 350 degrees.

 Add your wet ingredients: eggs, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla to the bowl and mix together.

Then add your dry ingredients: coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and chocolate chips.

 Mix well.

Pour into an 8×8 glass baking dish.

Bake for 30-35 minutes.

Let rest to cool a bit.

If you’re looking for a decadent, super easy recipe for brownies, our favorite is right off the back of the Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate box. One-bowl brownies are so simple to make; you can be eating this sweet treat within 40 minutes, start to finish! We substitute chocolate chips in place of nuts (of course we do, we LOVE chocolate). So, if you’re feeling a bit wicked, whip out your ONE bowl and make a batch of these. They’re sure to please all those chocoholics in your family!   [caption id="attachment_496" align="alignleft" width="224"]Brownies ONE BOWL BROWNIES[/caption]                  

1 pkg.  (4 oz.) BAKER'S Unsweetened Chocolate ¾ cup  butter or margarine 2 cups  sugar 3 eggs 1 tsp.  vanilla 1 cup  flour 1 Cup Chocolate Chips

Instructions:

HEAT oven to 350°F.

LINE 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Spray foil with cooking spray.

MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour and chocolate chips; mix well. Pour into prepared pan.

BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely. Use foil handles to remove brownies from pan before cutting to serve.

If you try one of these recipes, please tell us about it. Did you make them both? Which was your favorite? Please share with us in the comments section here or on our Facebook Page or take a picture and send it to us on Instagram! We'd love to hear all about it.
