Chocanistas of the world unite! Making chocolate is easy!
All you need is 3 simple ingredients.
Cacao powder, cacao butter and some sweetness. It’s the quality of the ingredient that counts.
Take The Raw Chocolate Company’s Virgin Cacao Butter for example. It’s basically oil from raw organic cacao beans. Extracted without heat to ensure it keeps its nutrition, quality and wonderful chocolatey aroma.
Simple Raw Chocolate Recipe:
1. Place the Cacao Butter in a bowl over a pan of hot water on a low heat and melt gently.
2. Leaving the bowl over the pan, add the coconut palm sugar to the melted oil and stir. 3. Then stir in the cacao powder and mix well using a balloon whisk or hand blender.
4. Spoon or pour into ice cube trays, silicon moulds or even a plastic tub to make one big chocolate bar!
5. Place in the fridge and leave to set.
For a flavoured Raw Chocolate, try adding any of the following: a pinch of cayenne or chilli powder, a drop or two of (food grade) peppermint or orange oil, orange zest, vanilla powder, sea salt, maca powder, dried fruit, nuts, spices… your life will never be the same again!
