Raw Cacao Bites

Ingredients

Instructions

In a double boiler over low heat place a medium sized bowl, careful not to get any water inside the bowl. Add the cacao butter, olive oil, and raw honey to the bowl and whisk to melt, being careful not to over-heat it and destroy some of the nutrients. Ideally you want to keep this mixture at below 110 degrees F. Once these ingredients are melted, whisk in the raw cacao powder. Whisk until no lumps remain and mixture is smooth.

Set the bowl with the cacao mixture over a separate bowl of cold water, being careful to not get any water inside the bowl, and continue to whisk this constantly until the mixture starts to thicken. The raw honey and the oil tend to separate so keep mixing them until the mixture has cooled off a little bit.

When the mixture is thick enough to hold a little shape, spoon it onto a piece of parchment paper in small circles. Place topping of your choice on top of the cacao rounds while they are still slightly soft.

If the cacao mixture starts to harden too much put the bowl over hot water again and melt to the correct consistency.

When finished place the raw cacao bites in the freezer for a couple of minutes and enjoy! The bites can be stored in the freezer or refrigerator for 1 week
