A bit of Magic and a taste of Heaven:)
I could not resist the name of this post:)
The reason?...I made Kate Magic's Marching Biscuits,
and Antony Heaven's Chocolate Spread to go on them!
I recently became a fan of Antony's blog. I love all the recipes he shares with us, and pictures of what he is eating.
There are quite a few of his recipes I would like to try, but we had to start somewhere, right?
Several of Antony's posts mentioned Kate Magic's Marching Biscuits. They looked so good, especially when Antony made his own chocolate spread to top them!
Click here for Antony's Blog post that got me so interested in trying this yummy recipe:) The link to the biscuit recipe is posted there as well.
Here is the link to Antony's post with the Chocolate Spread recipe
You know by now I have a hard time following directions:) I did not have a few of the ingredients, so I omitted them(zylosweet, he shou wu, and purple corn). I used about 3/4 cup of agave for added sweetness. My currants replaced the raisins called for. I also added 1 more cup of water, as Antony suggested.
The directions say to mix and soak just the seeds overnight with the water, but I mixed in the currants, cocoa, and lucuma too.
As soon as I added the water and agave to this mixture, look what happened...
It made me laugh as it started bubbling and gurgling for about a minute. This may be the strangest looking raw food pic I have ever posted...lol!
After everything calmed down, it soaked overnight.
In the morning, I was able to make several different variations. I made some with goji berries,
my favorite:) had dried cherries,
and one I left plain with the currants. I made some into heart shapes, and decorated them with nuts, seeds and lavender.
I cut some into squares and some into long bar shapes...

I made half the fabulous chocolate spread recipe, and added the cacao, coconut and maca to taste, since I was not sure about the 'd' measurement:)
If you have a stick blender, it is the perfect tool for making half of the spread recipe.
This spread was so delicious! I ate much more than I should have because I sat down on the couch with the spread and a plateful of the long biscuits! I am calling this my lunch for today:)
Try it, and you will see what I mean:)
Thank you so much to Kate Magic, and Antony! I loved both these recipes, and together they are especially awesome.
