DAY BEFORE DUNKING-DAY and ICE CHOCOLATE

What kind of crazy day is “Dunking-day” you say? Its christmas! In Sweden we have a tradition of dunking a piece of bread in the broth where we have cooked our christmas ham in. That makes today the day before dunking-day since we celebrate christmas the 24th.

This is one of the best days of the year – pretty much everyone quits their jobs at 12 and then we go home, decorate the tree and play Bingolotto. Bingolotto is classified as an “old-peoples-program” most of the year but the 23rd everyone watch their “uppersittarkväll” or “staying up late-night” where you buy a ticket and play bingo with the chance of winning everything from money to tiers.

Ice chocolate is a very classic christmas-candy here. Its so easy to make, and it taste really good. One thing i’ve discovered is that it taste so much better if you use cold-pressed coconut oil instead of the traditional coconut fat.

Ingredients;
400 g of good quality dark chocolate, 70%
100 g cold-pressed coconut oil
4 tbs Nutella

Do this;
Prep a baking tray lined with baking paper and arrange out small (preferably aluminum) baking cases.

Chop the chocolate into small pieces. Then melt the coconut oil in a pan on medium heat, add in the Nutella and chocolate and take it off the heat. Let it melt for a while before stirring it smooth. Fill the cases up up the top  and let them set up for at lest an hour in the fridge.
