My daughter and I have made five different chocolates. With each one I would like to give thanks. Today I am thanking you guys. I do not have the words to express how grateful I am for all of the support, encouragement and friendliness that has been bestowed upon me since starting Wholefood Simply. These chocolates are my gift to you all. My thank you. My ‘I think you’re great!’
Roasted Almond Chocolates
4 tablespoons coconut oil
4 tablespoons cacao or cocoa or carob
3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
2 tablespoons roasted almond butter (for a nut free version use 2 tablespoons of hulled tahini mixed with 1 teaspoon of honey or maple syrup, delicious!)
Place your silicon mini muffin tray into the freezer.
Gently melt the coconut oil and honey or maple syrup, remove from the heat and stir in the cacao/cocoa or carob. Remove tray from the freezer and spoon in enough of the chocolate mixture to cover the base. Gently spoon in the almond butter and pour over the remaining chocolate to cover. Put your chocolates into the freezer to set and store.
There are many ways to make chocolate, I wanted to bring you a few that are made from readily available ingredients. We have some other chocolates that I will be sharing further down the track, they require sourcing ingredients outside of the supermarket but cope much better with room temperatures. These ones will melt but they are quick and easy and we love them, I hope you do to. Be sure to let me know what fillings you try, we will share several of ours over the next few weeks. Enjoy!
