Simple Raw Chocolate Recipe

This recipe is the basis for all raw chocolate making. Super simple and easy to make chocolates that are free from dairy, processed sugar, gluten, additives and guilt!

Get Started

Pumpkin Spice Truffles

If you are looking for some healthy homemade Halloween treats then these pumpkin spice truffles would be perfect. Covered in a thick layer of chocolate and filled with a sweet pumpkin truffle they really are delicious. Not only that, they are lots of fun to make (the kids will love to get involved with this) and are free-from dairy, gluten and refined sugar making them suitable for almost all diets.

  • Yields: 12-14 truffles

Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Caramel Brownies

It’s that time of year where the leaves are turning colour and hazelnuts are falling off the trees, so what better way to start the new season than by making some raw chocolate hazelnut caramel brownies. These brownies are rich, indulgent and go perfectly with a cup of tea; not only that, they’re healthy, wholesome and easy to make.

  • Yields: 8 brownies

Chocolate Chilli Pumpkin Soup

This chocolate chilli pumpkin soup is the perfect dish to bring you comfort on these colder autumn days. In this recipe cacao shows off its savoury side, by adding richness and intensifying flavours, as well as helping to bring out the chilli flavour for a warming and delicious soup.

Cacao and Porcini Risotto

Cacao and Porcini risotto, a simple yet delicious meal packed full of rich umami flavours. This warm and comforting Italian dish celebrates the savoury side of cacao, and comes together with the Porcini to make a unique twist on the classic mushroom risotto. Not only does the cacao bring a wonderful flavour to the dish, it’s said to be a healthier alternative to other oils such a coconut and has a higher burning point.

  • Yields: Serves 2

Chocolate, Chestnut and Rosemary Torte

This chocolate, chestnut and rosemary torte is the perfect way to celebrate one of this seasons yummiest pairings – chocolate and chestnut. With the rich fudgy chocolaty base and the sweet smooth chestnut and chocolate cream this dessert really is a total dream. Serve at any winter gathering to impress your guests (they will never believe it’s made with whole and healthy ingredients!).

  • Yields: Serves 8
Bubble and Squeak Cakes

Bubble and Squeak Cakes

Bubble and squeak is a traditional British recipe that is perfect for Boxing Day brunch. You can use up leftovers such as potatoes, cabbage and sprouts but throwing parsnips into the mix adds a lovely sweetness and helps to create an even more delicious dish. Fried in cacao butter for perfectly crispy edges, these cakes make the best addition to any breakfast or brunch anytime of year.

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Yields: Approx 6 cakes
Raw Chocolate Christmas Pudding

Chocolate Orange Christmas Pudding

This chocolate orange Christmas pudding is a twist on the traditional festive dessert. It’s raw, vegan and gluten-free, and made with chocolate but still has all the flavours of Christmas. Lighting the pudding with brandy is totally optional, though it does add lovely warmth and makes for quite the showstopper!  As well as being tasty, rich and not knowingly healthy this version is simpler and quicker than the usual pudding and can be made in under half an hour.

Dark Chocolate Ginger Fudge

Dark Chocolate Ginger Fudge

Loaded with dark chocolate and caramelised ginger this fudge is a real Christmas treat. Unlike traditional fudge, it’s much healthier, dairy-free and doesn’t require the use of a sugar thermometer. It’s also made with a secret ingredient – chickpea flour though you never would have guessed. Based on the Indian dessert Besan ki Barfi the use of cacao butter and powder in this version helps the mixture transform into a melt-in-your-mouth fudge.

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Yields: 20-24 pieces

Healthier and Utterly Delicious Vegan Raw Chocolate Truffles

T ’is the season to roll truffles! I love creating healthier alternatives to traditional Christmas favourites and these vegan, dairy free and low sugar truffles taste just as delicious, if not better, than commercially bought Terry’s Chocolate Orange and Ferrero Rocher. I’ve also made some with coconut, rum and raisin as I seem to have a pot of raisins by my stove that I top up regularly with some rum, ready for any occasion. Super simple to make and utterly delicious. Hope you enjoy.
