Home-made chocolate recipe

By Chiropractor  Dr. Annika Jende

All of the ingredients are available at the health food store.

Melt cacao butter over the lowest heat you can in a pan. You can also use coconut butter, but it does make the final product melt much more easily.

Add cacao powder – the more you add, the stronger the chocolate taste.

Stir well!

Pour the mix into a rubbery ice-cube tray. It is important that it is completely dry. Put it in the freezer and wait for about an hour, and voila!



Things to play with (by putting in the tray beforehand): cacao nibs, dried blueberries, roasted wattle seeds, rose petals – let your imagination run wild!

You can also add organic edible essential oils, like peppermint or sweet orange, to the melted mix.

If you want a two-tone chocolate, put some of the white chocolate in the ice-cube tray first, and freeze, and then subsequently pour the brown mixture on top.

If you absolutely have to have a sweetener, use maple syrup, also add it to the melted mix in the pan, but you have to stir it in really well, otherwise it just ends up a sticky mess in the bottom half of your chocolate.
