Summary: These Raw Vegan Goji Berry Chocolates are made with raw cacao paste, or raw cacao liquor, or raw cacao mass. Cacao Paste is produced from the whole cacao bean, therefore it has both cacao fats (cacao butter) and solids (cacao powder).
I find that using Cacao paste makes a smoother, silkier, not-so-bitter chocolate, as there are less cacao solids.
In this recipe, I take the deliciousness to the next level by adding goji berry powder, lucuma and mesquite, which help create a fudge-like texture. And I use currants, and coconut nectar or maple syrup to sweeten the chocolates, giving them a really pleasant fruitiness.
Think of these as fruity chocolates for people who don't like their chocolate bitter.
Makes about 30 chocolates, depending on the size of your chocolate mould.
Summary: Raw chocolate bark is simply a thin layer of raw chocolate covered with various toppings. Variations are endless. You could simply pour the still liquid raw chocolate onto a tray and break into chunks once set, or like I do here, use a silicon heart mould. In this case, the chocolate heart would be a real show stopper if served with tea and coffee at a dinner party, or on Valentines Day.
