This particular recipe is fantastic for beginner’s as it’s very easy to make and only has three ingredients. It’s also a good one to make with children – I make it often with my niece and nephew and they never seem to tire of it. If you’re a more experienced chocolate maker, try replacing some of the chocolate powder with other powders such as lucuma, carob or mesquite. And of course, have some fun with flavourings and additions like nuts, seeds and dried fruit, dried raspberries or strawberries or raspberry/strawberry powder.
This is a great recipe to try if you don’t eat chocolate or want to have a break from it. Lucuma is a fabulous ingredient in chocolate making; coconut oil is a medium chain saturated fat that is said to be more likely to increase your metabolism than be laid down as fat or cholesterol; whilst coconut palm sugar is a delicious caramel-tasting, low GI sweetener. You could use yacon syrup or any other liquid sweetener instead – they’re equally delicious, it’s just that I really like the crunchy bite that coconut sugar gives.
