A healthy and energy-giving chocolate on-the-go or as a treat.
  • 1 Cup Cacao butter
  • 1 Cup Cacao powder
  • 0.5 - 1 Cup of Honey (the amount to your liking)
  • Vanilla / orange / mint / raspberry flavor (optional).
  1. Melt cocoa butter in a water bath. To do that, add the cocoa butter to a glass bowl. Set the bowl over a pan with an inch or two of water (3-5cm). Use medium heat. Take care that the bowl does not touch the water.
  2. When the butter is melted, add the honey and whisk it thoroughly into the mixture. Add vanilla / orange flavor if you want to.
  3. Either take the pan off heat or use a very small heat. Add cacao powder in small amounts and incorporate it well into a smooth mixture.
  4. Use a small ladle or a scoop to pour the chocolate into silicone molds, a glass bowl, or a parchment paper.
  5. Sprinkle lightly with fleur de sal (light salt) or a bit of sugar on the top, if you like.
  6. Leave it to harden. It may take a few hours depending on the room temperature.
  7. Take the chocolate out of molds and store them in a glass container or in the fridge. It may stay for a couple of weeks.
  8. Enjoy!
Note that a water bath is not strictly necessary. Once you get the experience, you can just melt the cacao butter in a pan, add honey and whisk in the cacao powder. You need to be just skillful at cooking/baking.

You can also speed the hardening by putting the chocolate into the fridge, but you need to wait when it is cool. Otherwise, it may create a dusty-looking surface (not beautiful) if the chocolate was too warm.
