This is truly a sugar free dark chocolate recipe. There is absolutely no refined sugar, not even honey. Of course there is sugar in dried fruits but this is natural sugar. Now we all know that sugar is the enemy and is the cause of many health problems so I've devised this dark chocolate recipe which is really raw and in fact super healthy.
1 cup of cacao paste
1 cup of cacao butter
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
1/2 cup of chopped almonds
1/3 cup of chopped cranberries
1/3 cup of chopped dates
1/2 tsp of vanilla powder
1/2 tsp of salt (himalayan or malden)
A little coconut oil for greesing the tray
Use Raw Nuts
I've used walnuts and almonds but you can use any that take your fancy
Melt the cacao paste and the cacao butter in a double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler then use a heat proof bowl and place it in a pot with boiling water. Use a medium size pot with a small ceramic bowl like a breakfast bowl. Allow the cacao butter and the cacao paste to melt completely into a liquid.
Roughly chop your fruit and nuts and mix them evenly in a bowl

Pour the melted cacao into the nuts, add your vanilla powder and the salt and turn all the ingredients until it is as evenly mixed as possible.
Now grease a small tray with your coconut oil (20cm x 30 cm or there abouts) and pour your chocolate mixture into the tray. Refrigerate for about an hour.
After an hour, take the chocolate out of the fridge and cut into squares. Put back into the fridge to set for another 2 to 3 hours. You can then store the chocolate in your fridge in a container and serve to your friends and family as long as you haven't eaten it all by then.
