Healthy Chocolate Cups with Pink Peppercorns

Christmas and this time of the year to me is all about reflecting on what has been happening in your life and planning for the new coming year. Yes, just a quite one. We walk around the streets full of bright lights and carols and look around window displays, maybe snow too. I think I enjoy the excitement and anticipation more than Christmas day itself. That is how my family ‘celebrates’ Christmas, not a kind of tradition having to cook a giant turkey or mountains of foods in an utterly chaotic kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, I like a celebratory Christmas feast, too. Anyhow, I made a little Christmas treat here (excuse my love affair with making sumptuous desserts at the moment). Cacao is rich and bitter sweet and pink peppercorns add a bit of spicy savoury yuminess. Total deliciousness full of antioxidant and mood enhancer without refined sugar or dairy. This is real clean eating 🙂 Keep them in your freezer for hungry emergencies or sweet craving moments. Enjoy and I hope you all are having a great time with your family and loved ones x
