Raw Vegan Fruit And Nut Chocolates Recipe

Have you ever tried your hand at making your own (raw) chocolate ? It is actually surprisingly easy to do. I share with you here a fool-proof recipe : start with roughly equal quantities of raw cacao butter and raw cacao powder, the sweetener of your choice. And when it comes to extras, nuts and seeds, dried fruits, edible flowers, food grade essential oils and food essences are all equally wonderful. If you choose like myself not to sweeten the chocolate in this recipe, worry not, the dried fruits provide ample sweetness.

Method

  • Start by preparing your toppings : roughly chop or process the brazil nuts, mulberries and raisins or sultanas. Also prepare your chocolate moulds, make sure they are perfectly clean and dry, and that you have a tray to put them on.  
  • Now make the raw chocolate. Using a double boiler or a bain-marie, gently melt the cacao butter. Do not do this over boiling water, as you don't want to over-heat the cacao butter. Once the cacao butter is completely melted, stir in the raw cacao powder and mix using a fork or a whisk, until well combined.
  • Remove from the heat and add the salt and sweetener, if using. Taste test, adding 1/2 Tbsp sweetener at a time.
  • When satisfied with the taste of your chocolate, carefully fill your chocolate moulds about 3/4 to the top. Generously sprinkle with the nuts and dried fruits mixture.
  • Put in the fridge for at least an hour to set.
  • Will keep for several weeks in an airtight container in the fridge.
