If you love chocolate I’m sure you’re looking forward to Easter because, apart from Halloween, chocolate is everywhere. There’s Chocolate of all types molded into bunnies, eggs and a huge variety of other fun characters.
As Cat Lovers we would have more fun with a chocolate Cat or kitten of course.
But with all that chocolate out there to choose from how do we know what the good chocolates are and the bad chocolates we need to avoid. Most chocolates unfortunately contain some nasty ingredients such as artificial colors, corn syrup, fillings and bad fats that just don’t belong in our bodies. The best way to know exactly what you’re buying is to check the list of ingredients on every package.
If you’re buying your Easter chocolate at the grocery store most of it will be loaded with ingredients that are not there with your health in mind and are really there to keep costs low and to extend the shelf life of the candies. Check out this list of 9 ingredients to avoid in the Easter Basket. Specialty shops and chocolatiers may offer healthier choices. Where ever you buy your chocolate make sure you always check what ingredients they’re made with to be on the safe side.
Make Your Own Healthy Chocolate Cats
A far better idea would be to pass on the stores and make your own chocolate yourself. That’s right. Making your own chocolate is super healthy, you’ll know exactly what you’re eating and it’s easier than you might imagine. Simply get a mold of your choice, get a few simple ingredients and have some fun. The best part is the ingredients are all natural and organic.
There are lots of recipes online to try. We did a google search for “diy natural chocolate” and found this easy 3 ingredient chocolate recipe.
That’s it. Very simple and no added sugars, fats or fillings?
For the chocolate molds it’s entirely up to you. Assuming a Cat mold would be your first choice, we put some great Cat and Kitten molds below for you to check out. The silicone molds are the best type to use as it’s easier to get the chocolate out and the chance of them releasing any toxins is very low.
