For all you true romantics out there – surely nothing says I love you more than chocolate? Well actually I think I can beat that…..raw chocolate that is free from any nasty milk products AND shaped in a heart? Now THAT’s what I’m talking about!
I’m posting lots of pictures on this post because sometimes words are just not necessary.
So spread some real love and make your very own chocolates!
Dark Chocolate Recipe
- 1 cup cacao butter
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 2 tbsp agave nectar (or more depending on taste)
Melt the cacao butter by double-boiling (setting the cacao butter in a bowl sat inside a larger bowl of hot water). This ensures the nutrient quality is not compromised by excessive heat. Combine with the remaining ingredients until smooth and pour into moulds.
Feel free to top chocolates with goji berries, nuts or coconut chips for variety.
Happy Valentines day everyone! (Okay so I’m a bit early but it’s just so you can prepare yourself with making a delicious gift for your loved one!)
