Have fun getting creative and creating your own piece of chocolate heaven! You can vary the ratio of cacao powder and sweetener. For example, if you like a very dark chocolate then add 120g of cacao powder and only 50g of honey or maple syrup. If you enjoy more of a milk chocolate flavour than instead of using 200g of cacao butter use 100g of cacao butter and 100g of coconut oil and add 90g of honey or maple syrup.

PREP TIME 10 mins SERVES Makes 2 ice cube trays COOK TIME 1-2 hours DIFFICULTY Easy
200g cacao butter
100g cacao powder
70g maple syrup
pinch of salt
Chop or the cacao butter into rough pieces, if this is a bit difficult, you can grate it. Then melt the cacao butter gently over a very low heat in a small saucepan, stirring constantly. Once it has melted remove from the heat and add the cacao powder, honey or maple syrup and a pinch of salt.
Use a whisk combine all of the ingredients well. At this point, you can add your little bit of magic to the mix! This may be a pinch of cinnamon or some grated orange zest, or you could add some of your favourite nuts. I added 1 cup of Loving Earth Buckinis to this batch.
Pour the mixture gently into chocolate molds or ice cube trays. Pop this into the fridge or freezer to set for 1 to 2 hours. This chocolate has to be stored in the fridge otherwise it will melt!
