Published December 26, 2012 by Polana Fowdrey

Raw Vegan Chocolates

Hand-made, raw vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free chocolates; healthy and full of superfoods. Nothing could be finer!

Basic Recipe:

20g Cacao Butter

20g Coconut Butter

(You can use all Cacao Butter if you prefer.)

1/2 cup Cacao Powder

1/4 cup Raw Agave Nectar or Raw Honey

(Raw Honey and Lucuma is a heavenly combination!)

1 pinch Sea Salt (optional, but does bring out the flavour!)

Additions:

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper for Chilli Chocolates

1 extra pinch sea salt for Salty Chocolates

A pinch of Cardamom Powder for Exotic Chocolates

Substitute 1 spoon of Cacao Powder for 2 spoons Cacao Nibs for Crunchy Chocolate

Substitute 1/2 the Cacao Powder for Lucuma Powder for Milk Chocolates

Experiment with your own spice combinations for Your Signature Chocolates!

Method:

Melt the butters in a bowl over hot water or in a bain marie.

Add the Agave Nectar and stir using a whisk.

Add the Cacao Powder slowly, still mixing.

Add the salt and any additions and stir thoroughly until smooth.

Fill silicone ice moulds and place in freezer until set.

Turn out the chocolates and arrange delightfully. Watch them quickly disappear as the faces of your guests take on a rapturous glow!
