If you’re a chocoholic, like me, this is a saving grace! It’s so hard to find chocolate without sugar in it.
Even the good stuff still has it. So, you make your own, and you’ll never look back!
- ½ cup raw organic cocoa butter (food grade) I use Nativas, but you can also buy it on Amazon.
- ½ cup + ¼ cup organic raw cocoa powder again Nativas, Rapunzel is another great cocoa option.
- ¼ honey or maple syrup (you can add as much as ½ cup)
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut extract
- In a thick glass cup or bowl grate your cocoa butter and put it in or over a pot with simmering water (think double boiler or bano de maria).
- Make sure not to get water in the butter, stir gently until melted- this will take a while.
- Have a metal bowl ready over ice and a plate with the extra cocoa powder on it.
- Once butter is melted, remove from heat and quickly mix in honey, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon & coconut extract, mix until smooth.
- Then pour into cold bowl and stir, scraping the solidifying parts off the bottom and sides.
- Do this until it has a play dough like consistency.
- Roll in to balls with your hands (if your hands are melting it, run them under cold water or wear double latex gloves).
- Immediately after you form each ball, dust with remaining cocoa powder & place on a cool plate.
- Let those babies sit in a cool, dry place for a while.
- They won’t melt, promise!
- Viola! You have soft, rich, tempered truffles!
