60g Raw cacao powder

50g Raw cacao butter

2-4tbsp Sweet Freedom (made from apples, grapes and carob, this low GI natural sweetener is made in the UK. Low GI? This means that the release of energy is slower and so you don’t get the same peaks and troughs of energy)

1. Place a clean bowl over a saucepan of hot water (bain marie). Ensure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water & no water goes inside the bowl.

2. Grate the cacao butter, add to the bowl & allow to melt slowly. Don’t keep the water boiling, turn the heat off and just give it a quick blast every so often if necessary.

3. Once melted, add the cacao powder & stir in thoroughly with a balloon whisk or fork, until it starts to slightly thicken.

4. The chocolate should be runny & easy to pour. Add 1 tbsp of Sweet Freedom & stir in very thoroughly. It will thicken as you add the Sweet Freedom

5. Taste it and if you prefer it sweeter, add more 1/2 tbsp at a time, mixing thoroughly and tasting after each additional tbsp.

6. When the mixture suits your taste, pour gently into the silicone mould using a jug or spoon.

7. Place it in the fridge to set for an hour or more (or in the freezer if you can’t wait that long).

8. Any remaining chocolate is the chocolatier’s treat!

The chocolate will keep for up to a month in the fridge, but is best enjoyed in a week. Can be frozen for even longer!

To give your raw chocolates a coconut dimension, you could add 1-2 tdsp of virgin coconut oil to your chocolate mix in step 3.

For an orange twist, perhaps add a few drops of orange essential oil at some stage.
