Raw Chocolate Heaven
OMG I just made and tasted my first ever raw chocolate. It was heaven on earth, like seriously ridiculously delicious.
For all you out there: I beg you, please make this and treat yourself (it sets within an hour hehehehe).
Put 7 Tblsp deodorized (odor-less) coconut oil into a bowl and place the bowl in a hot water bath, stir until melted. Add 3/4 cup of cocoa and 5 Tblsp maple syrup (can use agave, too. Not sure about honey, I think it has to much of a distinct own flavour). Whisk together until smooth.
Pour the mix into silicon ice cube trays and chill in the fridge for at least one hour. Done!
I added prunes to 3 of the molds so I will see how they turn out. You could add endless other ingredients:
- a blob of sweet nutbutter, e.g. hazelnut butter, almond butter, etc.
- raisins and hazelnuts
- chopped macadamia
- apricots, figs, mango pieces (all dried)
Or just plain chocolate…
after 1 hour, the chocolate is set, but not yet hard enough to snap like standard block chocolate. I don’t know whether it will become like that after being in the fridge overnight, but this fudgy delicious texture is so perfect already.
Give it a go and go to chocolate heaven.
Will see you there… :-)
