Raw Chocolate!

Who knew making chocolate could be so simple and easy? I discovered how to make this on a whim I tried a whole new recipe (that I made up in my noggin) that worked out really well so I thought I would share my recipe!

Raw Chocolate

You will need:

  • 3 Tb. Raw Cacao Powder
  • 2 Tb. Rapadura Sugar
  • 50g of Raw Cacao Butter, grated
  • 1 Tb. full cream milk powder/ ground almond meal (optional)

Cacao Butter Rapadura Sugar Raw Chocolate Powder Full Cream Milk Powder

All the ingredients you will need (L-R): Cacao Butter, Rapadura Sugar, Raw Cacao Powder and Full Cream Milk Powder/Almond Meal (optional)

How to make it:

  1. First you have to melt the Cacao Butter. To do this place your measured and grated Cacao Butter into a bowl and then place that bowl into another bowl that is filled with hot water. Melting Cacao Butter With a spoon crush the lumps until the it is a complete liquid.
  2. Now in a blender add the Cacao Powder, Rapadura Sugar and Milk Powder/Almond Meal. Blend till they become really really fine (this is ensure you get a really smooth chocolate).
  3. Now this is the crucial part of the recipe. Add the powder to the melted butter, stirring constantly (keep the bowl in the now warm butter) and mix till really fine. Once mixed very well, add this to your mould or use ice cube trays Ice Cube Choc. Do this really quickly as the Chocolate tends to set really fast! Leave to set till hard in the fridge or freezer.

There you have it, my recipe to make your own RAW CHOCOLATE (without any nasties)!

My thoughts on my Raw Chocolate Recipe:

Make sure you get the mixture of the warm bowl to your mould asap! If you wait a bit longer and it goes hard, you will need to re-melt the mixture. Fill the other bowl with hot water again and place your chocolate in the bowl into the other bowl to melt. Make sure you blend/grind the powder super finely otherwise it can become a bit gritty. You could add some vanilla extract (non-alcholic as this is raw chocolate) or seeds of a vanilla bean to the melted butter for extra flavour.

Happy Eating,
