Paleo Dark Chocolates!

Here’s a very simple and foolproof method to make paleo dark chocolates. Everyone I have given these chocolates to loves them, even though there is no sugar in them, just agave syrup!

Ingredients
  1. 100g Cacao Butter
  2. 6 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  3. 2-4 Tablespoons Agave Syrup
  4. 1 Small pinch of rock salt
Instructions
  1. Ensure all utensils and the bowl are dry before the ingredients are added as water can cause the mix to separate.
  2. Place the cacao butter in a bowl over a pan of water on a low heat and melt gently (use a Bain Marie).
  3. Once melted add 6 tbsp cocoa powder and mix well using a metal ballon whisk (wooden spoons don’t blend as well).
  4. Ensure the heat is low and add the Agave syrup and mix well.
  5. Taste the mix once melted and add more sweetener if you prefer a sweeter taste.
  6. Once completely melted and blended remove from heat. Your mixture should be runny and easy to pour and can be poured or spooned into ice cube trays or silicone moulds.
  7. You can put this in the freezer if you want it to set very quickly, but I recommend leaving it at room temperature for a while and letting it set 'gently', otherwise the texture of your chocolate will not be as smooth.
Notes
  1. Feel free to mix it up by using various essences to give the chocolates more flavour. Some of my favourites are tangerine, mint, caramel. I also just add a single flake of sea salt to each chocolate, or just add some nuts to give them an extra crunch.

 One of the best things you can do with this homemade chocolate is to give it to people as gifts! It makes a wonderful, personalised gift and everyone I’ve give some to have loved it. 

Just get an empty chocolate box from a local chocolate shop or patisserie, add your chocolates, stick on a pretty bow to it and you’re done! Doesn’t this look beautiful?
