STOP! Right there I have your next chocolate fix sorted. You need to make this raw dark chocolate asap.

This is so easy and versatile to make. I have made it multiple time now and I actually prefer it to the store-bought kind. If you have seen any of my other post that include chocolate and there are quite a few now. Then you will know all about my love for really dark chocolate.

Making your own raw chocolate will allow you to gain all the benefits of raw cacao powder. For instance, its high in iron, fibre and calcium. As well as a great source of magnesium.

I choose to use coconut oil instead of cacao butter, which is what the store-bought kind use. Mainly because coconut is readily available unlike cacao butter. Due to the fact that virgin coconut oil melts at 24c degrees, this will need to be kept in the fridge or freezer.

Coconut oil has healthy fats in it including lauric acid but it’s still a fat at the end of the day. Therefore, don’t go crazy just because it has health benefits doesn’t mean you can consume copious amounts of it.

This recipe is very moreish though like all chocolate is, which is one of the main reason I like an extra dark chocolate. The bitterness that this gives will mean your craving is satisfied quicker. You can adjust the bitterness by adding more or less coconut sugar.

Top tip for a smoother texture grind your coconut sugar in a blender to create a powdered sugar consistency.

Time to get creative and have fun with the mix-ins for this recipe. I included the ones I used but you can add whatever you like.

Here’s some ideas:

  • Chopped or whole nuts
  • Shredded or flaked coconut
  • Seeds
  • Dried fruit
  • Sea salt
  • Maca powder
  • Cacao nibs

The beauty of making your own bark is each batch will be unique!
