Tis the Season to make chocolate

And that is what I did. I welcome you to the wonderful world of raw chocolate recipes.

RunLoriRun’s Cacao Delight Bars
Ingredients for simple chocolate:
1/2 cup whole peeled cacao beans, ground
1/8 cup coconut oil
1/8 cup melted cacao butter (use coconut oil if not available)
1/4 cup raw honey or raw agave syrup

Optional ingredients:
1/4 cup raisins
1 T almonds, finely chopped
1 drop orange, lemon, clove, lavender or other essential oil
Cinnamon to taste
Celtic sea salt to taste

Grind cacao until it is very fine. The cacao will have a consistency like raw almond butter and will stick to the sides of the grinder. Mix ground cacao with coconut oil or cacao butter in grinder or food processor. Add honey and other ingredients, stirring or processing well. The mixture should be able to be poured. If not, add more coconut oil. Pour into ice cube trays or other forms and freeze for 45 minutes. Serve immediately after
removing from the freezer.
