Many of you know, that in the last year I have been experimenting with different raw chocolate recipes, none were a failure (I often make them for Satsang), but it needed to be perfected and I did not really have a recipe to give away as I was just trying and mixing. So I think now I found a recipe I can share with you. Please keep in mind that when making your own raw chocolate from organic ingredients, you need to be creative.
Homemade Dark Chocolate:
Please use certified organic ingredients
70 gr raw cacao butter
1/2 cup raw cacao powder (sifted optional)
2 tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup or raw honey
1 pinch of celtic sea salt or pink himalayan salt
Moulds to pour the mix in, I use ice cube forms.
Melt cacao butter in a small, dry metal or glass bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. (On a hot Queensland’s Summer day I just put the bowl outside, covered and let it melt naturally). Once melted mix in all the other ingredients and mix very well until you have a nice, thick, consistent, liquid chocolate mix. Pour into the mould and freeze over night or for several hours.
Some extra tips:
If you prefer the taste of milk chocolate, decrease the amount of raw cacao powder used.
Feel free to be creative and add any nuts: walnuts, almond, macadamia, etc….. finely chopped, raisins, and/or vanilla essence or vanilla beans, there are many other possibilities.
Please share your suggestions and trials.
