“This is a favourite decadent treat in our house and it’s so simple & versatile, I bet it will become a favourite in yours too!”
200g organic cacao butter (we use baking buttons)
50g coconut oil
170g cacao powder
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp 100% pure vanilla extract
2- 4 tbsp maple syrup or raw honey (this will be dependent on taste and you may need to start at 4 and slowly reduce, as cacao can be bitter tasting – especially to kids when they first start swapping over from shop bought sugary sweet chocolates)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 tbsp chia seeds
This is the simple part!
Line a slice pan (approx 28cm x 18cm) with baking paper
In a medium saucepan melt together over low heat, the cacao butter and coconut oil
when melted (cacao butter won’t melt as quick as commercial chocolate so don’t worry if it takes a little while) add the rest of the base ingredients and mix well
once mixed, pour into your slice pan
sprinkle topping over the base and freeze till set
remove from freezer and let sit for 10 minutes before cutting (store in the freezer in an airtight container).
CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES!!!!
This is where it gets fun! Mix it up, choose what you like, try new flavour combinations, let the kids choose things they love to add. Some of our favourite additions are:
crushed or chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, brazil & hazelnut all work well)
fresh or frozen berries (raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc)
Fresh or frozen fruits (or rinds – orange, lemon and lime rind is delicious!)
freeze dried fruits
dried fruits (pick organic and preservative free – a lot of dried fruits contain sulphites) – mango, banana, goji berries, inca berries, apples, etc
seeds (linseeds, pumpkin, chia, sunflower & sesame are all yum) – if kids aren’t a lover of seeds on top, grind a few tablespoons and add to your base!
Some shards may break off when cutting – don’t waste them use them to sprinkle in a coffee for some chocolaty goodness or add to warm milk for a hot chocolate
use a piece of chocolate with some warm coconut or almond milk for a rich hot chocolate
melt some of the pieces to pour over homemade nicecream
melt some with a little extra coconut oil to make a chocolate dip for slices of fruit
Use in place of commercial chocolate in baking recipes!
