Happy Easter! Raw Chocolate Bark with Goji Berries, Dried Blueberries and Macadamia Nuts


 Someone please tell me why I haven't done this earlier?   The inspiration to do so came about after dehydrating some blueberries and my usual delving for "what can I do with them now"? I searched high, I searched low, I stood in front of the pantry gazing munching on gojis and macadamias when "bing" - I spied the block of cacao butter that had been in my pantry for roughly 3 months that was dying to be turned into some sort of delight for Easter.  As it currently stands, I am slightly in heaven and so to are the boys  as you can see.  Now I am left wandering why I haven't done this before for many reasons.    Happy Easter everyone and enjoy!!  




Raw Chocolate with Blueberries, Goji Berries & Macadmia
Adapted from Rawxy

1/2 cup cacao butter, melted
1 cup cacao powder 
1 Tbs Maca Powder
1 Tbs Mesquite Powder
1 Tbs Coconut Sugar
+
Goji Berries, Dried Blueberries and Macadamia Nuts chopped in half


In a dehydrator melt the cacao butter or if you don't have one you could do it over a very low heat on the stovetop by putting the butter into a saucepan
Prepare a tray lined with baking paper (just make sure it fits in your freezer)
Sift the cacao, maca and mesquite powder together
Add the coconut sugar to the powders
Add the dry mix to the melted cacao butter and mix well to combine
Pour onto the prepared baking tray
Top with goji berries, blueberries and macadamia
Put in the freezer for approx 1 hour or until set

  2. Happy Easter! Love love love this recipe. Pinning it immediately. And happy I can use some of my raw cacao stock on this! (10 kg of cocoa butter seemed like a great idea at the time ... ) :)
