Raw Caramel Chocolate
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
