Raw Chocolates

That Hallmark holiday is right around the corner....Valentine's Day!  What better way to say "I LOVE YOU" than with these raw beauties?  I have made these chocolates before, but tonight I got a little more creative with adding chopped almonds.  Full of antioxidants and anti-microbial agents, these chocolates are sure to please, easy to make and are truly beneficial to your health.  Are you feeling the love?

All you need are 5 ingredients, a stove top, a blender, flexible molds and a freezer.  I whipped these gourmet delights up in 15 minutes and they turned solid in less than 10 minutes.  Wilton can't touch these.  They want to, but...they just can't.  FAR FROM IT!


7 oz. cacao butter, melted
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup raw honey
2 cups cacao powder
Seeds of 1 vanilla pod

Melt the cacao butter in a double boiler or over a pot of water at low temperature.  Put the melted liquid into your power blender.  Add the melted coconut oil, honey and vanilla seeds and blend.  Slowly sieve the cacao powder into the mixture and blend on low speed until everything is combined.  All the ingredients can be mixed through by hand if you do not have a power blender.  Pour into chocolate molds or ice trays and allow to set in the freezer.

This recipe made a little over 35 chocolates.
