Chocolate Covered Kale Chips

LOVE LOVE LOVE - Gourmet Chocolate Covered Kale Chips.

If you've never had kale chips, don't turn up your nose. You HAVE to give them a try. They are one of my favorite raw snacks ever! I've made them cheezy and I've made them spicy, but this time, I've made them chocolaty!!! Simple, easy and nutritious. Make a lot, because they don't last long! Now available at the Rawfully Tempting Cafe.

I've been waiting for this recipe since you mentioned it on FB! I don't have cacao paste; do you think I could substitute something or omit it? I have a big bunch of fresh, beautiful kale, just waiting to be used. :)

The fun thing about raw food, is you can substitute a lot of things. The results may vary, but you can usually throw something yummy together. Try using a little more cacao powder....and increasing the hemp a little...i'm just guessing, but how bad can it be? Let me know how it turns out!!!

What exactly is cacao paste, and where would I get it?

And when you say "process," you mean in a food processor, right? So I should be dehydrating a purée?

How many dehydrator sheets would you say this makes? (I'm not terribly sure I want to make 3 bunches of kale's worth the first time! lol)

Rachel, click on the link above to learn more about cacao paste.

"Raw Cacao Paste is made by crushing raw cacao beans into a liquid. This liquid quickly solidifies at room temperature after being ground and the result is Cacao Paste. Because no heat is used in this process,Cacao Paste retains all its natural healing properties. Cacao paste is naturally 50-55% cacao butter and is an extremely smooth, buttery product great for use in any chocolate recipe. If you are looking for true dark chocolate, this is it. Not 80% or 90%, but 100% pure organic dark chocolate."(ZNaturalFoods)

This recipe can be processed in a blender or food process. I use a blender. You make a puree with all of the ingredients listed, EXCEPT the kale. Put the torn kale leaves into a large bowl and little by little massage the thick blended mixture into the kale leaves. It works best if you do each leaf, one by one. It's time consuming, but dehydrated kale chips are soooooo delicious! Let me know how you make out!

Best Wishes,
