Homemade Chocolate Recipe
If you would like to get a little creative, making healthy chocolates with your family can be a great way to come together (with those in your household) and do something fun. The main ingredients in these homemade simple chocolate treats are coconut oil and cacao or cocoa powder, both superfoods. Cacao is antioxidant and rich in magnesium.
2/3 cup of coconut oil
½ cup of Cacao powder
1/3 cup of Maple syrup (or raw honey – but be sure not to add the honey when the oil is too hot)
Pinch of Sea or Himalayan salt
Coconut flakes or other treats (nuts, rose petal, berries, raisins, etc).
Have silicon moulds ready to go (if you don’t have these, ice cube trays should work).
Melt the coconut oil (I used a make-shift double boiler, but in a pot would work as well).
Add the maple syrup, then the cacao and the little bit of salt. And mix until smooth consistency.
I put coconut flakes into the mould. Pour the chocolate mixture into the moulds and pop in the freezer for 20 minutes or more. Then pop them out of the moulds and enjoy! :)
Be sure to store chocolates in fridge.
