Homemade chocolate bars
When I discovered cacao butter and oil I started experimenting with this chocolate recipe. I made a bunch of chocolate pieces and now I can’t get enough! It’s a delicious recipe to prepare in your sweat pants, in no time you’ve made a big chocolate bar. Enjoy!
8 large pieces
pie tin (square or heart shaped)
35 g cacao butter
4 tbsp coconut oil, unscented
2 heaping tbsp raw cacao powder
2 pinches vanilla powder, unsweetened
2 tbsp maple syrup
a pinch of cinnamon
50 g unsalted, raw macadamia nuts (or any other nuts)
1 handful goji berries (or other dried fruit)
4 tbsp puffed quinoa
a pinch of sea salt or Himalayan salt
Bring 1,5 liters of water to a boil. When it’s boiled you pour it into a big bowl. Add the cacao butter and coconut oil to another small bowl and then slowly place it in the bowl with hot water. When the butter and oil are melted, gently stir with a wooden spoon, but be careful: the mixture will be hot! Add the raw cacao powder, vanilla powder, maple syrup and cinnamon. Chop the macadamia nuts into small pieces and add to them as well. Stir and then pour into the pie tin. Sprinkle some goji berries, quinoa puffs and a small pinch of sea salt on top. Then cover with tin foil and put it in the freezer for 30 minutes. Then you can enjoy your own homemade chocolate bar! Don’t wait too long to eat it though because it will melt at room temperature. In case you are not able to finish the whole chocolate bar, or don’t want to share it (which I can totally understand), just put it back in the fridge or freezer.
