16 (1 of 1)Who else buys some of their “superfoods” at TJ Maxx? {PSA: superfoods isn’t even a real term, I’d much rather say functional foods…but you know what I’m referring to more if I say “superfoods”} I’m newly obsessed with TJ Maxx and you really can’t beat their prices. A whole bag of goji berries was only 8 bucks…at Whole Foods they are $18! Crazy, right? I also picked up some raw cacao nibs, raw cacao powder (used to make these delicious chocolate cups), and some crystallized ginger, my fave guilty-pleasure (and one of the best toppings for these chocolate cups)

I love the rich dark chocolate flavor of these cups and it’s so fun to play around with different toppings. After experimenting with these before, I’ve decided my absolute favorite is the chocolate with the ginger…SO DELICIOUS. Try around and see which toppings you like best! I like to use a variety and store them in my freezer for when those chocolate cravings kick it…aka daily?15 (1 of 1)

No need to bake these or do anything too crazy in the kitchen. Simply melt the ingredients and stir together, and pour into small muffin liners. They harden on their own in the freezer!

 These raw vegan chocolates contain healthy fats from the coconut butter and coconut oil, and the raw cacao powder gives all the benefits of dark chocolate (antioxidants, magnesium, iron, fiber) without added sugar! Used to sweet chocolate? Add a bit of stevia or your fave sweetener of choice. These are MUCH healthier than a Hershey’s or Twix bar….and cheaper too! Processed chocolate (aka your typical store-bought candy bar) strips all the benefits and nutrients from it, therefore giving you mainly just fat and sugar. This chocolate gives you HEALTHY fats, little to zero sugar (depending on what you add), and all the good benefits. It’s a win-win. ๐Ÿ™‚ I bet you’ll be just as hooked as I am.
