raw vegan white chocolate

raw vegan chocolate recipe

Here is my obligatory raw chocolate post, because Easter. Cacao butter works better than just using coconut oil for these recipes because it has a higher melting point and the texture is more like regular chocolate. I usually melt mine by chopping or shaving it into a bowl I place over saucepan of water on very, very low heat and stirring until it’s liquid.

There were plans in my head to make a raw version of Top Deck for this post, but then I found some old IKEA ice cube trays in the shape of bottles that seemed kind of perfect for little white chocolate milk bottles. Cute, yes? So the chocolates remained separate and more of each kind of chocolate was made than originally intended, which is just fine by me.

RAW, VEGAN WHITE CHOCOLATE

1 CUP MELTED CACAO BUTTER
1/2 CUP MACADAMIA NUTS (or CASHEW NUTS)
1 DESSERTSPOON COCONUT OIL
2 TEASPOONS VANILLA EXTRACT
1/2 CUP LIGHT AGAVE NECTAR
PINCH OF SEA SALT FLAKES

Blend everything in a high speed blender or food processor until very smooth. Pour into chocolate molds and store in the freezer to keep their setting.

 

RAW, VEGAN DARK CHOCOLATE

1/2 CUP MELTED CACAO BUTTER
1/2 CUP COCONUT OIL
2/3 CUP RAW CACAO POWDER (or DUTCH PROCESS COCOA)
4 TABLESPOONS MAPLE SYRUP
PINCH OF SEA SALT FLAKES

Blend everything in a high speed blender or food processor until very smooth. Pour into chocolate molds and store in the freezer to keep their setting.
