Sweet Valentines Chocolates

makes approx. 16 chocolates


Equipment: Chocolate moulds of your choice

1/2 cup organic raw cacao powder

1/2 cup organic raw cacao butter (*Hint: chop into small pieces to melt faster)
2 tbsp organic maple syrup or other sweetener (use Agave for a completely raw chocolate)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

First melt the cacao butter by placing it into a bowl then place that bowl into a slightly larger bowl containing boiled water. Stir the cacao butter with a spoon until all pieces have melted. Add the cacao powder, mix well. Then immediately stir in the sweetener and the vanilla extract mixing well.

With a spoon, pour the melted chocolate mixture into the moulds. Place in freezer for 15 to 20 minutes to set. Then pop out the chocolate pieces from the moulds. They are ready to serve or keep in the refrigerator until dessert time!
