Nothing is more adorable than chocolate. And nothing beats a good quality home made recipe – and even better one that you can whip up in ten minutes or less! We don’t always have lots of time to spend rustling up gorgeous food as much as we’d like. This simple chocolate recipe will have you dancing around the kitchen making batch after batch!
What I love about these isn’t just their simplicity or their stunning ingredients, but their flexibility. Keep them in the fridge (or somewhere cool) to be nibbled at when you fancy, melted on the tongue when needed, stirred into your coffee or hot chocolate when wanting more from your hot beverages. They also make wonderful toppers for a range of cakes and desserts! So let your imagination run wild!
I used a variety of chocolate moulds that I had lying around. For these coconut oil based chocolates a flexible mould is best, or use ice-cube trays, or the lid of a tupperware (to create a thin chocolate bar) if you don’t have any moulds. Just get making these already!
- 1 cup liquid coconut oil (warmed in a baine marie, dehydrator or bowl over pan)
- I cup cacao powder
- ½ cup carob flour
- pinch quality salt
- ¼ cup ground coconut sugar (optional if using quality carob flour as it’s quite sweet) (milled in my personal blender)
- large pinch turmeric powder
- tsp reishi (optional)
- tsp chaga (optional)
- tsp maca (optional)
Blend all ingredients in a small blender or whisk in a bowl in order of the recipe: add things step by step if whisking in with a fork or mini whisk. Work quickly especially if your room is cool as the chocolate will thicken. Pour into moulds. The best way to do this is to not do it neatly but pour the chocolate over the whole mould (over a larger bowl) and using a palette knife scrape off the excess in to the bowl below. Chill in the fridge until firm or until needed. I added a couple of goji berries and pollen to the bottom of the moulds of some chocolates for some variety. You can add chopped nuts or dried fruits. Play with your food. Tweak the recipe to make it your own. The options are endless!
Big loves: Let me know how you get on! And check out my events from time to time as I host a range of chocolate (and other) kitchen ninja workshops for those exploring a raw foods diet and a healthier way to nibble.
