All Dressed Up

I just realized I’ve been posting more food pics lately. I suppose the holidays and brisk weather (more indoor time?) could be why.

This is my easiest recipe with only two main ingredients not counting any extra garnishes.

Pour a 13 ounce can of coconut milk into a medium sauce pan and warm over medium low heat until simmering. Stir occasionally. As the milk simmers but before it even gets close to a boil, stir in 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips then stir, stir, stir with a wooden spoon until its glossy smooth. At this point stir in a pinch of fine sea salt but this is optional. It won’t taste salty but it takes the sweet edge down about a half a notch. Immediately pour into 6 or 8 ramekins and chill until firm. Garnish based on what you have on hand from caramel to coconut to fresh berries. Final fancy dressing up aside its just two ingredients that make up this impressive, rich, chocolatey dessert. ♥️

And today’s takeaway: It really doesn’t take a lot to be fabulous as long as your core ingredients are good ones.

Whether you dress it up or down—its what we’re made of that counts, not how we’re garnished. Fancy trimmings are a nice touch, and for the record I’m all in favor of judiciously applied personal embellishment, but its got to be about the main ingredients. Honesty, integrity, sincerity, loyalty, generosity, kindness, love . . . any combo, gently simmered over the fire of life experiences can produce an impressive and noteworthy recipe for an extraordinary life.

Garnish that! ♥️
