Chocolate – Guilt-Free!

Homemade chocolate

Chocolate - everybody's favourite!

 

Here's a homemade version that is quick and easy.   You can add different variations to the mixture, such as chopped glace ginger, nuts, seeds or rice puffs.

 

Ingredients:

  • 500g jar of cold-pressed coconut oil
  • 1 cup raw cacao (or ordinary cocoa if you prefer)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
  • Approx 3 tbsp honey or maple syrup (to your taste)

 

Method:

  1. Melt the coconut oil if required, by standing the jar in a container of warm water (coconut oil solidifies in the cooler months, and turns liquid during summer).
  2. Place cacao, coconut and ginger/nuts/extras (if using) into a mixing bowl.  Stir the melted coconut oil through until mixed thoroughly.
  3. Add honey/maple syrup to taste, and stir until well combined.
  4. Pour into a slice tray, and refrigerate for several hours, or until set.  When firm, slice into small squares and store in container in the fridge.
