From the crunchy yet delicate hazelnuts to the distinctive raw cacao taste, to the sweet raisins or the fatty coconut chips, this homemade dark chocolate will exceed all your expectations.

Ingredients

  • 70 g cacao mass
  • 70 g cacao butter
  • 80 g extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 100 g hazelnuts
  • 40-50 g coconut flakes
  • 80 g raisins

Instructions

Chocolate Mix

  • Add cacao mass, cacao butter, coconut oil, salt, vanilla and cinnamon into a double boiler.
  • Keeping the double boiler temperature low, melt all the ingredients slowly until they combine into a chocolate paste.
  • Remove the bowl from the double boiler and set aside to cool down.

Assemble chocolate

  • In a ceramic or glass tray (flat bottom) add hazelnuts, raisins and coconut flakes.
  • Pour chocolate paste on top, mix gently using a spatula and place in the fridge to solidify.
  • When solid, cut into desired shape and place back in the fridge to rest.

Notes

If you want to take this out of the house and are afraid it’s going to melt, use half of the coconut oil or replace half of the cacao butter with cacao mass (same quantity).
You can safely play around with the nuts, using walnuts or pecans will work just as well.
Chopping the nuts also works really well, this will actually make the nuts easier to chew on.
