So my kid has been craving milk chocolate recently (well, in fairness he’s just hoovering up any food, he’s growing so fast and is continually hungry). I’ve been looking into healthier kinds, but even the supposedly healthy chocolates still have a ton of sugar. So I decided to try to make my own…
This recipe is raw vegan, and as long as you keep the same amount of cacao butter, you can vary the other ingredients (so I guess you could make white chocolate too if you only use the milk powder). I initially found it hard to find milk powder, but finally found coconut milk powder in Holland and Barrett – I also bought the other ingredients there. You also need some moulds. I’ve been gathering moulds over the years. I also just used ice cube moulds if you don’t have other ones. Finally, you do also need a very good blender. I used my trusty vitamix for this. Enjoy!
220g cacao butter
175g milk powder (I used coconut milk powder, rice will work too)
150g raw cacao powder
125g sugar (any non-liquid kind)
Pinch of salt
Melt the cacao butter in a pot.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the vitamix and blend in short bursts.
Add the melted cacao butter and blend for 2 minutes. The mix will be hot.
Pour into moulds (I added some granola to some for extra effect) and leave overnight to set (put them in the fridge if you want it to go faster).
And that’s it! Well that was easy😊
