Coconut. Chocolate. Coffee. Caramel. Some of the best c-words in the food world.
Put them together = BLISS!
Here is my recipe for my Coconut Chocolate. It's raw, vegan, paleo, and delicious!
250 grams cacao butter
1 3/4 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup maple syrup (less if you don't want it as sweet, or more if you want it sweeter!)
50 grams Coconut Sprinkles
*plus any extra toppings or ingredients. I love almonds, coffee beans, chilli flakes. Make it how you like!
6-7 silicone moulds
Melt the cacao butter. I put the butter in a glass bowl and put it over a pot of boiling water.
When it's melted, remove from the boilers, and add the cacao powder, maple syrup, and salt. Mix well.
Once mixed, add the Coconut Sprinkles. You can also add your other ingredients (almonds, chilli flakes, etc). Mix well.
Meanwhile, add 1-3 coffee beans into the silicone trays... also good at developing fine motor skills for 3 year old helpers!
Now you're ready to add the chocolate into the trays!
Carefully spoon the warm mixture into the trays. Once finished, lick the spoon and bowl, and put the full silicone trays into the fridge or freezer for 2 hours (to harden the chocolate).
My kids LOVE this chocolate, and it's so good for them, too.
You can also get creative with the ingredients - play around with adding goji berries, nut butters, chilli flakes, activated almonds - the options are infinite!
Enjoy! If you liked this recipe, I'd love to hear from you!
