Dark Chocolate Honey Cups and 1 Year Blogiversary!

Dark Chocolate Honey Cups

Good Stuff Friday is being postponed for a very good reason: Today is The Vegetable Centric Kitchens birthday!

One year ago today I ventured into the blogging world after waking up one morning with the name “The Vegetable Centric Kitchen” stuck in my head and knowing that was the name of my new blog.

I’d had no plans of starting a blog but was in the midst of The Artists Way and inspiration was flowing freely. I had no hesitations once the idea came to me, I’d been feeling like I was about to burst with healthy recipe ideas and wishing there was a way to share them. This has been my perfect outlet and along the way I’ve made friends and am headed in a direction that I never would have anticipated when I started!

So how to celebrate? Dark Chocolate Honey Cups.

I made an attempt at re-creating my favorite honey patties from Heavenly Organics, an frequent “impulse buy” at one of our local health food stores. If you saw little packets of individually-wrapped, dark-chocolate-coated-honey could you pass them up? The honey is sweet enough to use a solid dark chocolate on the outside and they don’t end up with any more sugar than my favorite dark chocolate bars! So happy birthday Veggie-Centric Kitchen, let’s take a break from veggies today shall we?

Honey Patties from Heavenly Organics


1 oz baking chocolate (100% cacao)
1 tsp raw honey
2 cupcake liners

Melt chocolate over low heat and scoop half an ounce into the cupcake liners. Place a half teaspoon of raw honey on top of the chocolate lining. Top with the remaining chocolate and place in the fridge or freezer until solid.

P.S. Taking a break from veggies? Completely kidding. So not happening ;)
