Magic Mineral Chocolates

Want to make some magical "chocolates" for someone special these holidays? Super fun to do with the kids but I'll warn ya - also kinda messy. Luckily they're delicious .

Moderate prep. Gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, nutrient dense.

Makes approx 50 small chocolates.

INGREDIENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS


1 cup smooth peanut butter (I like Pic's)
0.75 cup cacao butter

0.25 cup blackstrap molasses
1.5 tablespoon maca powder
2.5 tablespoon carob powder (or you can use cocoa)
pinch salt
0.25 teaspoon vanilla essence
Silicon gummy tray/s
3 tablespoons desiccated coconut (optional)

 

  • Gently melt cacao butter in a saucepan on a very low heat.

  • Once it's liquid, gently stir in your peanut butter with a rubber/silicon spatula until combined.

  • Add maca, carob, salt, coconut (if using), molasses and vanilla - again stirring gently.

  • It should end up looking a bit like milk chocolate! Turn heat off and have a wee taste (beware as it may be a bit hot).

  • If you're happy with the mixture, you can then start spooning into your silicon gummy trays while still warm (it begins to harden as it cools so best to do quickly).

  • When cool, place in refrigerator until chocolates are hard. Take out of silicon trays and put in glass containers.

  • Can be stored in pantry, but best in fridge or even freezer for when you or the kids need a quick energy hit.
