Homemade Chocolates

These little chocolates are a delicious sweet treat.  Just make sure that you store them in the fridge and eat them straight out of the fridge as they do tend to melt if left sitting out for too long!  Just before serving, I sprinkled them with organic dessicated coconut.  

Ingredients (makes 12)
3/4 cup cacao butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
Optional - handful of organic chopped dried fruit or crushed nuts or cacao nibs

1.  In a small saucepan on low heat, combine cacao butter and coconut oil.  Stir until melted and smooth.

(or in Thermomix: add cacao butter and coconut oil to bowl and melt at 70deg/4min/sp2).

2.  Add cacao powder, maple syrup and vanilla to saucepan.  Whisk until smooth.

(or in Thermomix: add cacao powder, maple syrup and vanilla to bowl.  Mix 20sec/sp4).

3.  Line a pizza tray with silicone moulds.  If using any of the optional extra ingredients, sprinkle these evenly amongst the moulds.  In the picture below, I used an organic mix of sultanas, white mulberries, sour cherries and goji berries. 

4.  Pour chocolate mixture into silicone moulds and put into the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.
