Vegan, gluten free, dairy free, grain free, nut free option, low sugar


  • Raw organic cacao butter, shaved into 1/2 cup
  • 1/4 cup raw organic cacao powder
  • Rice malt syrup or maple syrup, to taste
  • Dash pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Add-ins - get creative with roasted nuts, coconut chips, dried fruit, popped rice (opt)


  1. Gently melt cacao butter in a bowl sitting atop a saucepan of simmering water.
  2. Take off heat and add cacao powder. Stir till smooth.
  3. Add sea salt and vanilla.
  4. Grab your syrup and add a dash, stir well. If not sweet enough, add another dash. Stir and taste again. Mine was sweet enough here but do what you need to do.
  5. If the chocolate is starting to harden, pop it back on the saucepan of hot water.
  6. Now for your add-ins. The batch below was made with popped rice and above is Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bark. I roasted and chopped almonds and added a handful of sultanas. This is our favourite batch so far. Or add a few drops of high quality food grade essential oils.
  7. Either form into clusters, spread on a sheet for bark or put into moulds.
  8. Place in freezer to set.
