Raw Chocolate

The superfood status of raw chocolate gives you a great excuse to indulge regularly in your favourite food. I have tried many variations of raw chocolate over the years, and this particular recipe and ratio is a winner!! Remember you can flavour it up how you like to resemble your favourite chocolate- see the suggestions below for some inspiration.  11081777_10205147571401943_1304295687_n

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw cacao butter
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao liquor*
  • 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • tiny pinch Himalayan salt
  • optional splash food grade orange or peppermint essential oil, or vanilla powder

*Cacao Liquor is chocolate in it’s purest form, and contains both the cacao and the cacao butter. It melts beautifully and sets lovely too. You can order this online along with your butter etc. Replace with cacao powder if preferred.

Method:

Gently Melt and whisk ingredients together in a bowl over another bowl of hot water. Adjust flavours to your taste. Pour into desired moulds and set in the freezer.  IMG_6690
