Crunchy brazil nuts encased in a MASSIVE SLAB OF CHOCOLATE. Melts in your mouth. Tastes divine. And it’s guilt free. Yesssssss.
RAW BRAZIL NUT CHOCOLATE
- 1 cup cacao butter.
- 1/4 cup coconut butter.
- 1/4 agave
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup cacao powder (or Green and Blacks organic cocoa. Not striclty raw, but the next best thing)
- 1 cup brazil nuts (or less, or more!)
- 1/4 tsp salt.
Finely shred the cacao butter with a sharp knife, or grate in a food processor. Get a large bowl and fill 1/3 of the way with freshly boiled water. Place a glass or plastic bowl on top of the water. Then place the grated cacao butter in there and leave to melt slowly, stirring occasionally. (try and make sure no water goes in the bowl with the butter). Once melted, add the coconut butter and stir to melt. Then add the agave and vanilla. Stir. Next comes the cacao powder. Add this to the melting butter along with the salt and stir sensuosusly to mix. In a square silicone cake tray (or plastic tupperwear, anything really!) scatter the brazil nuts. Then marvel as you pour the melted chocolate over all of the nuts….OMG. Now you can see why I love raw foods so much! After licking the spoon and scraping every last bit from the bowl, place the tray of chocolate in the fridge. If like me, you can’t wait and want it NOW, place in the freezer. It will take a few hours to set in the fridge, and about 30-45 minutes to set in the freezer.
When it is set, take it out, break it into chunks and dive straight into raw chococlate heaven…….
