1Place the raw cacao butter in a bowl over a pan of water on a low heat and melt gently (Bain Marie or Baño Maria in Spanish).

Step 1 - melt cacao butter in a bowl

2Once melted add 6 tbsp raw cacao powder and mix well using a metal ballon whisk (wooden spoons don’t blend as well).

Step 2 - add raw cacao powder

3Ensure the heat is low and add the Sweet Freedom / Agave and mix well.

Step 3 - add Sweet Freedom

4Taste the mix once melted and add more sweetener if you prefer a sweeter taste.

Step 4 - mix with metal balloon whisk

5Once completely melted and blended remove from heat. Your mixture should be runny and easy to pour* and can be poured or spooned into ice cube trays, silicone moulds or even plastic tubs to make fabulous raw chocolate bars.

Step 5 - put into mini cases

6Place in the freezer and leave to set for 20 mins to half an hour on in the fridge for around 2 hours.

Step 6 - decorate with almonds

7Once made keep your CHOCs in the freezer or fridge and eat to your hearts content.

The CHOC mix tastes delicious plain but there is always room for some CHOCcreativity, so feel free to add some chilli powder for Chilli Chocolates or peppermint essence or vanilla extract, orange peel, coffee or orange liquors are all things that can be added. Our CHOC Chick favourite combination has got to be sprinkling in some crushed cardamom seeds and sea salt (absolutely amazing!!).

So easy to make and absolutely divine! I’m going to add chopped hazelnuts and orange extract next time to pep them up a bit!
