 Have you ever heard of Choffy?  Me either… until one of my readers sent me a bag to try and with it came this fabulous cupcake recipe!   SO, of course I had to make the Choffy Chocolate Cupcakes to share with all of you!

 

Choffy is brewed Chocolate.  It’s 100% cacao beans, roasted and ground for a rich, full flavored drink that is healthy!  Choffy tastes SO good… with a little french vanilla creamer and a 1 tsp agave in it!   Mmmm… I love dark chocolate SO dark chocolate Choffy in my mug with it’s antioxidant benefits (there’s more antioxidants in an 8oz mug of Choffy than 2 servings of blueberries)  AND I’m in heaven!

Some other benefits of Choffy is that it contains Theobromine which provides you with a healthy, heart-friendly, non-addictive energy lift without the crash or jitters of caffeine.  It also has the natural occurring bliss chemical called PEA and Anandamide for a “feel good” feeling.  PEA is also a fat blocker according to Dr. Oz and prevents fat absorption!  Sweet 🙂

 

If you remember back to my Tea and Carrot Cake Scones post, I wrote about all the wonderful things I love about herbal teas and a said how much I LOVE dark chocolate too.  At only 20 calories a serving I’m going to have to add Choffy to my list!  LOVE IT.

 

AND I’m so excited to announce that you can enter for a chance to try Choffy too!!  All you need to do is enter the give away at the end of this post 🙂
