Just Calm Chocolates

Guest recipe and blog by Sarah Masons @therootedblonde

What’s better than a piece of chocolate? Especially around Halloween! 🎃 

From Reeses Peanut Butter Cups to Snickers to Hersheys, chocolate is all around us this time of year. But, are those chocolate candy bars any good for us? I think you already know the answer – Most candy options are packed with artificial colors and flavors AND pure sugar! And we all know how sugar wreaks havoc on our guts. 

But what if you could skip the traditional candy options and whip up your own Halloween chocolate bars this year? And what if you could make the bars over the top better and WAY healthier than any other on the market? 

Well - With this recipe, now you can. Even better – You can create a healthy sweet treat that also helps you switch off stress!

When we get stressed our bodies naturally get depleted in key vitamins & minerals that are essential to feeling our best. 

This chocolate bar is made with 5 simple ingredients— All of which are packed with so many health benefits. Plus my new favorite Just Thrive supplement that’s geared specifically toward stress – Just Calm.

Let’s break down some key health benefits from these homemade bars:

✔  Coconut oil - high in antioxidants

✔  Organic honey - anti-inflammatory

✔  Cacao powder - full of magnesium which naturally promotes ease

✔  Sea salt - packed with key minerals

✔  Just Calm - Clinically proven to beat stress and promote a calm, cool, and collected you!

These chocolate bars make the perfect little treat whenever you want to relax your mind and body.  And we all know what’s coming after Halloween…..the craziness of the holidays. So keep this recipe on hand any time you need to just chill and relax. Plus they taste like a bite of heaven and are so easy to make, they’re guaranteed to be your new favorite treat!
