Chocolate made from 100% Tree Products

Preparation Time: 5 minutesCooking Time: 5 minutes

For my challenge to eat only tree products for a whole week, I couldn’t do without chocolate. Technically the main ingredient for chocolate grows on the cacao tree. However a lot of other ingredients in most commercial chocolate contains other non-tree sourced ingredients.

As I wanted to take my -only-eat-tree-produce- challenge seriously, I made my chocolate myself using only 100% tree products.

Not only super delicious, this Tree-chocolate is also super healthy. Boabab fruit is an amazing pre-biotic fibre. Although sugar stays sugar, the use of natural sugars in this recipe is a way better choice then the refined sugar used in most commercial chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cocoa butter
  • 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup (raw)  organic cocoa powder
  • Sweetener: coconut blossom sugar or maple sirup (1/2 -1/4 cup depending on your taste for sweetness)
  • Optional: Baobab powder, Nuts or Coconut rasp

Instructions

  1. Create a "Bain Mary", this is a heated bowl of water with another bowl inside to melt the ingredients and prevent over-heating
  2. Chop the cocoa butter (melts better this way)
  3. Melt the cocoa butter and virgin coconut oil until smooth
  4. Gradually add the organic cocoa powder while stirring
  5. Add sweetener (coconut blossom sugar or maple sirup to taste)
  6. Optional: stir in the Baobab or Nuts (you can also decorate your chocolates with nuts)
