"Late Night" with Chocolate Coconut Dip

Many of my favorite late night shows are nominated for Best Variety Show at the 2012 Emmy Awards. Notably, The Colbert Report, Jimmy Fallon, SNL, The Daily Show and more. I think I’m rooting for The Daily Show. I mean did you see the Robert Pattinson interview a few weeks ago – well done. And hilarious – with the “Attention Twilight-Fans” warning plastered across the screen. That deserved an Emmy for creativity and hilariousness. And when late-night TV watching, you need a snack. And this rich and creamy chocolate coconut dip is pretty amazing. Spread it on toast, crackers, fruit or eat it by the spoonful..

Late Night Chocolate Coconut Dip

5 Tbsp virgin coconut oil
1 tsp raw cacao nibs
1/2 avocado
2 tsp cacao powder – or another tsp of nibs
dash cinnamon
2 tsp agave syrup
pinch salt
note: you can easily make this with either cacao nibs OR cacao powder – you don’t need both – although the double cacao flavor and texture is nice.

To Make: Blend in a Vitamix or blender until smooth. Place in the fridge or freezer until the top layer starts to harden up – but only long enough for the mixture to turn into a ‘dip’ consistency. Too long and you will get rock-hard choco “fudge” so be careful.

Dip and enjoy. Best when paired with some hilarious late night television.
