    Anybody have the recipe? I have searched and searched and waded through tons of ice cube recipes made with water or chocolate milk etc. I developed the recipe back when I was a kid and of course lost it. I was hoping someone else has made these as I really dont want to have to redo all the trials (not that I minded back then lol)

    These are made with cocoa, coconut oil (firm at room temp) and some other ingredients that I cant remember. Maybe hazelnut syrup? They are not frozen, but I remember refrigerating them. I also remember trying melted chocolate, but I am pretty sure that there either was none in the final recipe or very little. I was using it more the make the ice cube firm up at room temp than any flavor issue as it actually detracted from the taste rather than adding to it.

    Oh and I am sure these are horribly bad for you But... icon_twisted.gif

    I had no idea what they were (I'd never heard of them). I did a bit of research and found out that they are a German chocolate candy. I did find out that they are sold all over the internet (even Amazon sells them). Sorry, I don't have a recipe for them, but I did find a list of ingredients for them:

    Ingredients
    Partially Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Sugar, Low Fat Cocoa, Dried Sweet Whey, Soy Flour, Hazelnut Paste, Soy Lecithin, Artificial Vanilla Flavor

    I suppose the best place to start would be to find a homemade candy recipe that uses as many of the "ice cube" ingredients listed as possible.

    I think you will have to do some experimenting until you get the proportions right.

    I had thought of that I was thinking of starting with Coco-Cocoa Fantasy Fudge (Clean Eating) #394346 but using hazelnut syrup (like for coffee) instead of maple and see how it sets up then go from there. I know I did not use any flour in mine so this may work. I was just hoping someone had done the legwork. icon_biggrin.gif

    This recipe sounds similar to what you are looking for, I found it on a blog called Chocolate Covered Katie. Perhaps you can use it as a "jumping off point" for creating your own recipe for "ice cubes".


    Hot Chocolate Butter

    4 tablespoons (60g) virgin coconut oil
    1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon (52g) cocoa powder. (For a sauce, decrease to 1/4 cup)
    1/4 cup agave OR you can use nunaturals vanilla stevia drops (I use 10 vanilla drops, but if you don’t like super-bitter chocolate, triple that amount)
    Melt the coconut oil, either in the microwave or on a candle warmer or in a warm oven. Add the vanilla drops (or agave) and stir. Add the cocoa, then add 3 tablespoons water only if you used vanilla drops. Stir stir stir! Stir until it gets thick like Artisana Cacao Bliss.

    Put the hot chocolate butter into ice cube trays and chill until firm. When firm, remove the cubes from the mold and coat the cubes with the magic shell coating.

    For Magic Shell:

    Decrease cocoa powder to 1/4 cup and keep all other measurements the same. Also, if you re-heat it for a few seconds, it’ll get thinner. And if you freeze it, you can make incredible chocolate bars… or even chocolate chips! Just break up the chocolate bars into little pieces.

    I remember seeing those, but I don't think that I have actually ever had one...
