Ingredients

  • 160 g cacao butter
  • 50 g coconut flakes or desiccated coconut
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp sunflower lecithin*
  • 6 g tube of freeze dried strawberries

Instructions

  • Place about 5cm of water in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, then place 160g cacao butter into a heatproof bowl and place it over the water - it shouldn't actually touch the water.
  • Allow to melt and then remove from the heat.
  • Meanwhile place 50g coconut in a small high speed blender jug and process until smooth.
  • When the cacao butter has melted add it to the coconut along with 3 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 2 tsp sunflower lecithin and process until well combined.
  • Add 6g freeze dried strawberries and stir.
  • Pour into your chocolate mould (I like to use silicone) and allow to set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  • When set remove from the mould and store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Notes

*Lecithin acts as an emulsifier, helping to make the chocolate smoother.
