Prep Time: 5 minutes
So quick and easy to whip up when you are cravin' some chocolate. :) This can easily be raw if you just let the coconut oil melt without putting it on the stovetop, but I just melted and mixed everything on the stove. I always eyeball the ingredients when making chocolate.
- Coconut Oil
- Cacao Powder
- Sea Salt
- Vanilla Extract and/or Almond Extract
- Sweetener of your choice (agave, coconut sugar, maple syrup, date sugar)
- Optional: Almonds and Sesame Seeds
- Mini Pie Tin (or any other mold)
Other ingredient ideas:
- 1-2 drops of Peppermint Extract to make mint chocolate
- Unsweetened cacao nibs
- Pecans / Peanuts
- Goji Berries / Raisins
- Sliced Banana (coat the banana slices in the melted chocolate and let solidify in the freezer/fridge)
- Blended dates or figs to make a gooey caramelly filling for your chocolates
- Shredded Coconut
- If you just want to make a small amount of chocolate, add in a few tablespoons of coconut oil into a pot and put over low heat. Once it has melted, remove from heat and add in about a tablespoon of cacao powder, a pinch of sea salt, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, whatever sweetener you'd like (I like mine bittersweet so I don't put much in).
- Once everything is fully mixed, pour into a mini pie tin (this is just what I used, but you can use chocolate molds and whatever you have available) and place in a few almonds and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
- Carefully place in the freezer until it has solidifies (It only takes about 10-20 minutes) and then you can remove it from the tin and eat it! :D Keep it stored in the freezer or fridge.
If you haven't made chocolates before, I suggest making a small amount first to see how much sweetener you like and then adjust next time. It is so creamy and delicious that I find I don't need too much sweetness.
