Instead of sugar loaded chocolates, she makes hers with three simple ingredients: Chi Coconut Oil, raw cacao powder, and agave/pure maple syrup. Then she fills it with almond or peanut butter.
“Not only are these chocolates ‘not bad for you’ they are actually so incredibly good for you! Raw cacao, is a raw un-processed cocoa powder, meaning you can harness all of its incredible superfood properties. It’s one of the richest sources of antioxidants in the world, protecting your body against disease and free radicals entering the body. It also increases your serotonin levels (the happy hormone) so you can eat as many chocolates as you want knowing its going to make you happier and healthier!” says Saskia.
120ml melted Chi coconut oil
3 Tbsp agave/maple syrup
60g Raw cacao powder
1 tsp of nut-butter of choice, per ‘Reese’ cup.
Add the melted coconut oil, agave and cacao powder to a bowl and mix until completely smooth.
Line a cupcake tray with mini cupcake moulds/ cases. Divide the mixture in half. With one half start by pouring 1 tbsp of the chocolate mix into the bottom of the cupcake moulds. Put in the fridge for 10 minutes to set.
