We've been getting into our double-layered chocolate, as demonstrated on Shazzie's YouTube video, Superfoods are for Real. Creamy on the bottom and chocolatey on top, this is my version of this stunner of a sweet. Watch Shazzie's video and you won't be able to resist running to the kitchen and making some for yourself, I couldn't.
Also take a look at this, from 'the happy raw kitchen' !
- 150 g cacao butter
- 150 g lucuma
- 100 g hulled hemp seeds
- 5 drops orange oil
- 1 tbsp he shou wu (optional)
- 50 g raw honey (or agave for vegans)
- 150 g coconut butter
- 150 g cacao nibs
- 150 g goji berries
- 50 g zylosweet
- 1 tbsp vanilla powder or 1 vanilla pod or 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 tsp Etherium gold (optional)
- 1 tsp Blue manna (optional)
Melt the cacao butter in a porringer or in a bowl over a saucepan of boiled water. Once it's runny, stir in the lucuma, hemp, orange oil, he shou wu, and honey. He shou wu is a Chinese herb which is a tonic and very uplifting, it won't affect the taste if you miss it out, but if you can get some I recommend it, it goes brilliantly in chocolate. Stir all the ingredients together and pour into a medium sized tray, smoothing it down as you go.
To make the top layer, melt the coconut butter in the same way as you just melted the cacao butter. Grind up the cacao nibs and gojis in a high power blender or coffee grinder. Put the melted butter, nibs, gojis, zylosweet, vanilla and any extra superfoods you want to add in (Etherium gold and blue manna are my favourite combination) into a blender, and blend until it's a thick smooth cream. Pour it over the first layer and put it in the fridge to set.
After about three hours, it should be ready, turn it out of the tray and cut into cubes, six across by five down. If you haven't already got a secret cupboard for hiding away your own private stash of chocolate before everyone else eats it, you may want to create one on this occasion.
