Chocolate Love Bites

Chocolate Love Bites

What you need:

3/4 c coconut oil

1 c  cacao (raw chocolate)

1/2 c  maple syrup

1/4 c  hazelnuts (filberts) finely chopped

1/4 c  goji berries, soaked in warm water for 10 min & finely chopped

1/4 c  shredded coconut


What you do:

To make your  own chocolate, I find it’s best to use a double boiler or a metal mixing bowl floating in a pot of simmering hot water.  Boil the water in a pot, turn the water down the heat from a boil to a gentle simmer to avoid burning the chocolate

  • Melt coconut oil in the double broiler or on the stove top in a mixing bowl on top of a pot of simmering hot water
  • Once melted, add cacao and maple syrup and stir until combined
  • Once chocolate is a smooth texture, add the remaining ingredients or any other nuts, seeds or fruit that you love until incorporated well
  • Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the chocolate mixture and place into a mini muffin tin. Continue filling each of the openings with chocolate and place the tin in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until chilled and firm.  Once the chocolate is firm, turn the tin upside down to remove your homemade chocolates. Feel free to use any other mold to create shapes that you desire. Ice cube trays work well too
  • Enjoy!
