Homemade Chocolate with Fruit & Nuts

 First time making healthy homemade chocolate today, and it’s rather gorgeous! Just three staple ingredients needed. It’s so totally easy, so get cracking and make some if you haven’t yet tried the experience.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 3/4 cup cacao
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 4-6 tblsps date syrup, (can use agave, coconut blossom, maple syrup or honey)

For extra taste I added a sprinkle of chopped fruits and nuts:

  • Pecan nuts
  • Strawberries
  • Kiwi fruit
  • Dates
  • Dedicated coconut

Method:

  1. Heat the coconut oil
  2. Once it’s a liquid take off the heat and sieve in the cacao powder with a whisk
  3. Add your natural sweetener and whisk
  4. Transfer the chocolate to a tin, with grease proof paper if it’s not non-stick
  5. Allow to set in the fridge for 20-30mins
  6. Slice and keep in fridge for up to a week

The raw fruit does make it a little wetter but I didn’t mind imperfect slices and I liked having fresh fruit combined. If you want firmer slices then use dried fruit and nuts only. You could also up the amount of chocolate for thicker chunks.

Enjoy! And share your choco stories or variations…
