Cocoa *Crock*

By on November 23, 2012

As ridiculous as this might seem, I’m posting yet again about the sugar free, zero carb chocolate treat commonly known as “Cocoa Crack”.

I do have an updated recipe (it’s all about the proportions) and this one seems to be the best ever.

My husband who is my perfect partner in parenting, realized that calling something that makes mommy sooo excited, “crack”, might not be the best idea. I poo poo it and then imagine my girl in some situation later in life where her better sense has to war with childhood memories of mommy smiling and gobbling up “crack”.

Stephen’s idea was to switch it to “Cocoa Snack.” Now, as advertising copy goes, I guess it’s good. But it never tripped off my tongue. It just doesn’t work for me and I hate trying to remember it and failing.

Just now it dawned on me. Cocoa Crock. It works.

I guess the idea of Cocoa Crack is that it’s so delicious and satisfying that one becomes addicted to it. Well…. I suppose that’s possible… In the same way that someone stranded on a desert island with no water might become addicted to drinking their own urine. Sure, you’d gratefully do it as much as you could but no matter what you call it, it ain’t water!

It’s a Crock.

And now that I have you really excited about this taste sensation, here’s my newly revised recipe:

1/2c + 1/4c trader joe’s coconut oil

1 1/3c cocoa powder

6 packets Pyure brand Stevia

Original post with photos and instructions here.

That is all.

    Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it as “cocoa crack”, but I guess in the interest of your children’s ears it’ll do. LOL

      I know… silly right? But… crack has at least two unpleasant connotations so I don’t mind. It does the job and that’s what matters.

    Mmmm, I recently pinned a similar recipe on Pinterest. I may have to create both so I can compare. :)

    I gotta say, I read this and backed slowly out of the room. Because, coconut oil can have… unfortunate side effects.

      Really? I haven’t had that problem at all. Could it be the brand you’ve tried? I’m usually very unwilling to go *there*. Thanks for stopping by!!

    Your description of the desert island urine addiction was hilarious, and totally captured my feeling about so many healthier “treats.” And yet, I suspect I would grow to love cocoa crack. I wanna eat healthy, but have a junky sweet cravings that no wholesome piece of fruit are ever gonna touch. Stevia is my new best friend, even in recipes where it kinda sucks. Will have to check out the recipe!

    YUM- though I’m trying to go cold turkey right now- I’m craving chocolate and I know it’s because I have eaten crap for months! :p

    Hmmm, as long as you keep the cocoa and the urine into separate recipes, then this Cocoa Crock recipe I am willing to try. The Urine Crock recipe, not so much.
