Once a while I'll go nuts for some dark chocolate, and lately I've been making a sandwhich out of this stuff right here:

I eat half a bar a day sometimes... a lot of times.

Watch for that peanut buttter, it's not even a real nut, it's considered a legume. That being said, I guess there's worse things that you could eat if you're going to indulge once in a while.

If you use coconut milk in the hot chocolate, with some unsweetened cocoa powder (and then add sweetener of choice if you want, I didn't fancy it) then it is so much thicker than hot choc with dairy milk. I also added some cinnamon to add an extra kick. Mmm.

Bit late visiting this post - but out of curiosity how do you know the cream from Waitrose is grass-fed? I'm trying to track down supermarket branded grass fed produce and am finding it difficult to know one way or the other! Any tips would be much appreciated, thanks!

I stapled the coconut butter for 2 days when I bought my first jar. Melt the coconut butter with the dark chocolate, stir and let cool for later--Primal Fudge?

That top picture IS my favorite indulgence! It's even worth the hassle to have to heat the bottle and get it mixed. I go through it fast!

Yes! Although more of a "chip and dip" thing than sandwich. I keep a jar and a bar in my desk at work. A couple grains of kosher or sea salt on top...now that's the sh*t.

gydle, if it's really dark like 90% and up I wouldn't worry about it too much... unless you're eating something like half a bar a day.

Here are a number of recipes: http://paleohacks.com/questions/45846/ice-cream-recipes#axzz1dwiI9kVM Mine is super simple: 2 cups cream, 2 cups half-n-half, 1 cup sugar and some vanilla extract (Maybe a Tbsp). I dont eat much of it though as carbs are usually under 50g per day. However I may be coming out of VLC soon... I would eat your treat instead but I can not tolerate chocolate or coconut..

I'm happy to say that I prefer less SAD chit as opposed to more natural desserts nowadays. The more I cut out sugars and carbs during the week, the less I crave high sugar sweets and candy. Subtly sweet desserts are a hell of a lot more satisfying now! I melted two pieces of Baker's Unsweetened chocolate over a cut up banana in the microwave; the dish was delicious. I also made a crustless pumpkin pie with canned pumpkin, coconut milk and eggs and it was so good. I added maybe half a tablespoon of honey and it was more than enough to sweeten the mixture up.

My favorite is the occasional fruit salad I've mentioned in some other threads: 1 date, 1 fig, 5-6 fresh cranberries plus a banana or ripe pear. Dribble with lemon juice, sprinkle with cinnamon and stir. Yummy!

I like dark, dark chocolate dipped in some kind of nut butter. Not only is it a tasty treat, but it is ridiculously filling so I don't have to worry about going crazy with it. A few squares is plenty.

Lindt 90% dark chocolate on its own

Chocolate mousse, made from Lindt 70%, Jersey double cream (from Waitrose, is grass-fed), free-range egg-yolk and egg-white (beaten to a snow and folded into the rest)

That Artisana stuff looks gorgeous, I shall try it with the 90%

Few spoons of fridged coconut milk (for thickness) + tsp of coconut oil + bunch of cocoa powder + tiny squirt of raw honey smooshed together in a bowl = pudding-like treat (with tiny bits of of non-mixed-in coconut oil) that satisfies my sweet/carb/chocolate cravings like nobody's business.

Cocoa nibs are pretty good. And while it sounds kind of bizarre, a good dill pickle is a treat for me, too.

Right now anything warm to drink...my favorite is peppermint herbal tea.

Besides tea, I'm testing out all the "paleo hot chocolates" and flavored coffees I can find! I haven't found a version that has the right heftiness for me...they're all a bit too watery tasting so far.

This weekend I'll be attempting a paleo pumpkin latte with actual pumpkin puree in it. I'm hoping it'll thicken the drink up and really satisfy. 8)

Hachez 88% Premier Cru - the whole 100 gram bar (3.5 oz) has 8 grams of sugar - no fake sweeteners, and no dairy (though is processed in a factory that has dairy so they do have a disclaimer about it). It is so amazing and just not sweet, but satiating! Just a few pieces does the trick when I need it!

For me the indulgent part is usually the price tag since I'm normally pretty thrifty

$10 bars of Schaffen-Berger 99% chocolate- the other 1% is vanilla. Best unsweetened chocolate I've had so far. $20 Swordfish steaks from the fish shop down the street. better enjoy that while I can, because once I start thinking kids, I won't be enjoying it again for a few years! Ginormous Rib-eye steaks from the bar across the street- I don't know what they do to it, but they're incredible.

I like to get a huge 4 scoop sundae with hot fudge, marshmallow, fruit, and nuts. It's my indulgence, I only have it about once every three months. If I beat myself about eating something delicious that in the wrong run won't hamper my health than I have an eating disorder.
