Raw Caramel Chocolate

By Wednesday, July 02, 2014 ,

I'll be honest here, this post is a long time coming, because I thought I had already posted the recipe! If you have been anxiously awaiting my adaptation of Loving Earth's supposedly heavenly caramel chocolate then look out, here it is!

My Australian friends have long tempted me with their array of raw chocolate- Loving Earth and Pana Chocolate to name a few. So when Pana launched in the UK I was overjoyed! But Loving Earth is yet to enter an international market and I cannot wait that long. I need to try this caramel chocolate!

Looking on their website I saw I needed Coconut sugar, cacao butter, coconut, and cashews. Now came the trial and error to produce something silky and soft, but also sweet and flavoursome. I wanted it to look like a golden caramel and taste like it too. And I was impressed with the end result!

Makes 100g of raw chocolate

You will need:

40g cacao butter
20g coconut sugar/nectar
10g coconut oil
10g desiccated coconut (unsweetened)
20g raw cashews
1/2 tsp lucuma powder

Gently melt the cacao butter and coconut oil in a water bath. Process the cashews and coconut until it makes a fine powder, then stir in the lucuma powder and coconut sugar. Add the cacao butter/coconut oil mixture and process for roughly a minute, just to combine it all well.

Pour into chocolate moulds and allow to set in the fridge

    1. It's a superfood powder and it should be in health food stores or online :)

    1. As long as it is raw cashew butter and doesn't have anything else added, sure!
