With Easter romping around the corner I wanted to share with you my favourite chocolate recipe of all time. And before you all fall over with shock, yes I do eat chocolate. Preferable my own raw chocolate love bombs of delight.
It’s super important the we consume food from a place of pleasure rather than regret. Your mind and body will love you for it.
Wait no more, here is my Raw Chocolate Love Bombs Of Delight Recipe – This is proper chocolate as in cacao. So in essence it’s good for you. Like really good for you.
What are the benefits of using Cacao:
- It helps to reduce insulin resistance
- It helps to reduce blood pressure
- It’s a great antioxidant
- It’s rich in minerals; Magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, zinc, copper and manganese
Tools you can use – I make my chocolate love bombs using my heart shape ice cube tray. They make super cute small perfect chocs, plus they pop out pretty easily once set. But you can use anything you have to hand.
Serves – around 17 when using my heart ice cube mould
- 1/4 cup of raw cacao
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil
- 1 table spoon of date syrup (you can use rice malt syrup instead, I just prefer the taste of the date syrup)
- One grind of sea salt – but you can leave this out or add chilli instead
- 1 tablespoon of almond butter
To make ::
> Gently melt the coconut oil in a pan
> Then add the cacao, date syrup and sea salt and mix well together and take off the heat
> Pour a little of the chocolate mixture into the bottom of each mould – fill around a 1/3 of the mould
> Pop into the freezer for around five minutes
> Once out of the freezer use a point of a knife to blob in a little of the almond butter into each chocolate base. Make sure you keep the almond butter in the middle and it doesn’t spread to the edges (or your chocolate won’t seal in the almond butter and whilst still incredibly delicious, they’ll be a bit messy to eat)
> Top up the mould with the cacao mixture taking care to fill all around the almond butter and to the top of the mould
> Place back onto freezer for around 20 mins
And then these little love bombs of delight are good to eat.
