Pure Delights Chocolates

You've probably read an article somewhere about the health benefits of chocolate; something about flavonoids or lower cholesterol. Of course, that doesn't mean you can chug back a candy bar and pat yourself on the back. Most of the chocolate products out there today are crammed full of sugar and fat, not to mention milk. Enter Pure Delights chocolates. The proprietor, Chrissy, sent me an email a while ago complimenting me on the blog. A few emails later, I had arranged a trade: my cookbook for some of her handmade chocolates. These are not your average chocolates: organic, fair trade, raw, and vegan. Sweetened with agave, they do not put you in a sugar coma, and the sweetness does not overpower the taste of the chocolate. These are the kind of chocolates that actually do have health benefits. So, if you are in the mood for some chocolate, check out Pure Delights and help support a vegan home business.

Now those sound like MY kind of chocolate!

By the way, your "post a comment" text is so faint at the bottom of your post that I can hardly see it. It's sort of a pale mint-green on a white background. Any chance of changing it for a darker colour?

Those sound really delicious. I love agave sweetened anything and the goji berries on top are the icing on the cake.

Hi, My name is Sophia.
Yum! I really want to try raw chocolates. I love chocolate so much, it would be nice to have a slightly healthier version!
Your hot-dogs look great too, I make an awesome one with chipolte BBQ sauce, and some really good coleslaw. (Bobby flay inspired).
I started a new blog at:
I would really love it if visited/commented on my blog.
I would also really like to add you to my blogroll?
Thanks!

I think you are pure evil posting these chocolates!! I tried your cashew pickeas, indian style potatoes with spinach and the chickpea crabcakes so far. Found your site about a week ago, I am so thankful. Everything thus far has been amazing!

I have experienced one form of nirvana, and it is...RAW CACAO shaped by the loving hands of Chrissy. These are truly some of the best chocolates you will experience, without guilt, remorse, or even candida! They are worth the money, and each one goes a long way. So blow off the Starbucks for 2 or 3 days and buy them!
