3/4 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- If coconut oil is hard/solid place it oil in a bowl. Then place bowl inside a BIGGER bowl that is filled with hot water so that it will melt. Don’t mix them together, though! You just want to liquify the pure coconut oil for use in this raw chocolates recipe.
- Blend all raw chocolates recipe ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Must use a blender!! (Hand mixing or whisking will not be enough to properly combine the ingredients.)
- As fast as you can, place chocolate mixture in chocolate molds to be set in the freezer (or pour into a small glass baking dish to set in the fridge until set). Do not let it sit! (Ingredients will seperate if you are too slow.)
- Freeze for at least 3 hours (ideally longer).
- Once frozen, enjoy! (If not using molds, cut into bars after they are solidly frozen.)
The Rawtarian’s Thoughts
These raw chocolates are super easy to make and all you need is a blender and a freezer.
Your chocolates must be kept in the freezer all the time, otherwise they will melt 🙂
I recently updated the photography for this recipe. I used these adorable little silicone chocolate molds to get such cute little chocolate squares. They turned out perfectly!
Also, in the pictures you can see there is some discoloration from where the coconut oil seperated a little bit. Don’t sweat it, they still taste to die for.
Lastly, you can definitely halve this recipe for a smaller batch.
Tip: You must be ready to pour these into your molds immediately after blending! Do not let the recipe sit at all, or it will separate. Speed is of the essence!
