🍫 Healthy Dark Chocolate Bites Recipe 🍫
Healthy Dark Chocolate Bites
You will need:
- 1 cup of raw cacao powder
- 1/2 cup of virgin coconut oil
- 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- A pinch of sea salt
- Optional toppings: chopped nuts, dried fruits, or shredded coconut
- First, start by melting the virgin coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat. This will serve as the base of our chocolate, giving it a creamy texture
- Once the coconut oil is completely melted, remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir in the raw cacao powder until it's fully incorporated into the oil. The cacao powder will give our chocolate its rich, chocolaty flavor
- Next, add the pure maple syrup into the mixture. This will provide a natural sweetness to our chocolate. Also, add in the vanilla extract and a pinch of sea salt to enhance the flavors
- Mix all the ingredients until they are well combined. The mixture should be smooth and glossy
- Now, pour the chocolate mixture into a parchment-lined baking tray or a silicone mold. This will allow the chocolate to set into the desired shape
- Before the chocolate sets, sprinkle your chosen toppings over the top. You can use chopped nuts, dried fruits, or shredded coconut for added texture and flavor
- Place the tray or mold into the freezer for at least 2 hours. This will allow the chocolate to harden
- Once the chocolate is set, you can cut or break it into pieces. Enjoy your healthy, homemade dark chocolate bites!
Store the chocolate bites in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for longer storage. Remember, this is a healthier alternative to store-bought chocolate, but it's still a treat - enjoy in moderation!
