Anniversary Chocolate Decadence

It’s MONDAY again! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend, as I did!

Last week was our anniversary, as you probably know if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook. We celebrated 4 years of marriage! We celebrated by going to a restaurant we’ve been wanting to try for a while now called Art City Trolley.  It was so, so yummy! Their burgers are made with grass-fed beef, with the option to have it served over a bed of mixed greens instead of a bun. That can be (doesn’t have to be, but can be) a difficult thing to ask for at times, so the fact that they have it on the menu already makes it easy.

I got the So-Cal burger, which probably wasn’t the healthiest burger option on the entire menu, but sometimes you have to treat yourself, am I right?! It’s all about balance. We both had the Rosemary and Garlic fries which were delicious!!

Basically what I’m saying is if you’re in the area and looking for a good meal, go here! It has a fun, cute environment as well as it’s in a trolley (a portion of it).

Even though I’m currently not eating sugar, I still wanted to have a sweet treat to celebrate! (What can I say, it’s ingrained in me!) I just love chocolate, so we ended up having these seriously decadent, incredible, chocolatey goodness bars. And I don’t think it’s just because I’m not eating sugar that these were so delicious. I DARE you to try them. They were so good. I think it defeated the purpose a little of not eating sugar because I definitely ate too many of these.

And maybe made more once we finished them.

Chocolate Decadence 

1/2 c Natural Peanut Butter (I use Costco’s Kirkland brand)

1/2 c Coconut Oil, melted

1/2 c Cocoa Powder

1/4 c Pure Maple Syrup

Directions

In a small sauce pan, mix all ingredients and whisk until melted and mixed thoroughly. Pour Mixture into a *dish (size is your choice) and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

*I coated my dish with coconut oil, but obviously in the refrigerator it just hardens anyway. I would definitely line your dish with parchment or wax paper if you want them to come out in nice pretty squares.
