Be My Valentine - Zesty Almond Raw Chocolate

Raw Chocolate Recipe

This recipe for raw choc definitely comes under the super easy category of - compile, gently heat, stir, pour, freeze and eat.   It’s also perfect timing for Valentines Day.  The boys chose lemon zest and almond butter and once poured I had an after thought to make one especially for me and added some chopped walnuts and a few chilli flakes - that gave it a nice bit of spark.  Personally I think making raw chocolate is one of those things that once you have a base just about anything (within reason) will work.  So don’t be shy and give it a try.  It will be a whole lot better for you than store bought chocolate and less addictive as well - trust me!

I recently picked up some chocolate moulds from Spotlight  but if you don’t have any just make a bark as we did in this combo sometime ago now.
