A couple of months ago, I visited Portland (read more about my trip here) and I tried sooo many delicious foods and treats. My food highlight from the trip was trying Honey Mama’s Chocolate Lavender bar, which was sold at Heart Cafe. I could not believe that something so healthy could taste SO GOOD!! They were sold for about $6 a bar. I bought 3, and none of them made it back home. I was determined to try and recreate this chocolate and share it with the world! It is the perfect dessert when you have a sweet tooth, and a little goes along way. I can say with confidence that this is the best chocolate that I’ve ever tried- and that says a lot coming from me.
I personally don’t like this chocolate too sweet, but if you prefer sweeter chocolate I recommend 1/3 cup of honey, rather than 1/4. Also, if you don’t prefer the taste of lavender, you can replace it with peppermint, and scrap out the rose petals.
