Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP Thinks You Should Make 'Sex Bark' for Valentine's Day

Paltrow Sex Bark

Gwyneth Paltrow might have found the perfect get-in-the-mood dessert to make on Valentine’s Day, and it’s appropriately called “Sex Bark.”

So, what exactly is this naughty sounding substance?

A post on the consciously uncoupled star’s lifestyle blog, GOOP describes the treat as “a quick and potent chocolate recipe perfect for a sweet bite after a romantic dinner.”

The story goes on to list the exotic ingredients and their seemingly special powers: “Ho shou wu is an herb tonic used for centuries to enhance youthfulness, reproductive function, and sex drive and Moon Juice’s Sex Dust is an aphrodisiac warming potion promoting enjoyable sex and fertility for both men and women.”

Now Paltrow has suggested some pretty over-the-top things on GOOP, but how is it that we’re just hearing of Sex Dust, and more importantly, how can we get our hands on it?

Well, a 4-oz. jar of Sex Dust will set you back $60, plus “Joyful Heat & Brain Activator” Moon Pantry Cacao ($15), “Sex & Beauty Tonic” Moon Pantry Ho Shou Wu ($18) and the Moon Panty Cacao Nibs ($15), which claims to ignite the “rush of blissful endorphins, mood-boosting hormones, and antioxidants to increase brain flow, boost metabolism, nourish your nervous system, battle fatigue, and spark libido” – and you’re looking at at least $108 to make Sex Bark.

But, that said, can you really put a price on love?

For the recipe, see below.

Sex Bark
Serves 4-6

¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup ghee
1 cup Moon Pantry Cacao
3 tsp. Moon Pantry Sex Dust
2 tsp. Moon Pantry Ho Shou Wu
¼ cup raw honey or several drops stevia
1 ½ tbsp. Moon Pantry Cacao Nibs

Combine coconut oil and ghee in a glass bowl set over a simmering pot of water, and stir until completely melted. Remove from the heat and whisk in cacao, powders, and the sweetener of your choice. We like this very chocolaty and not too sweet, but feel free to adjust with more stevia or honey. Pour into an 8×8 glass or metal baking dish, sprinkle with cacao nibs, and freeze for about 20 minutes, or until firm. When ready, pop the bark out of the dish with a butter knife, and break into pieces.
