Have you done that before? Throw in the towel and try a totally different direction. It’s pretty rewarding when it works out. So what if I couldn’t mold perfect little patties out of pure coconut oil and chocolate…they had other plans all along. Thank goodness too, because otherwise I never would have discovered such a thrilling, healthy dessert. Win-win.
