I spent the month of February feeling like a total goddess, surrounded by so many beautiful, inspiring women. Today, for International Womens Day (and the fact that I’ll never turn down a reason to make chocolate) this post is to honor the goddess in all of us, with none other than raw chocolate cups with an amazing caramel sauce!
For the chocolate sauce, I used “love grade” chocolate I brought home from Guatemala- pure, intense cacao bliss. Cacao powder will work the same!
- 1/4 cup cacao
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 4 Tbs cacao butter (optional, but oh so yummy)
- 4 Tbs sweetener (maple syrup, brown rice syrup, honey)
For the caramel sauce, I blended
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 3 Tbs coconut oil
- Small handful of soaked dates (about 6-8)
- pinch of sea salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
Melt the coconut oil and cacao butter over a double broiler until liquid. Mix in cacao, sweetener and salt until combined and delicious. Pour half the mixture into molds and place in the freezer to harden for about 10 minutes. In the meantime, blend up the caramel sauce (and try not to eat it all by the spoonful!) Once the chocolate is hardened, spoon caramel sauce on top and cover with remaining chocolate sauce. Place in the fridge or the freezer to fully harden. Pop out of molds (They’re a little messy because of the caramel) and enjoy!
Cheers to all the gorgeous gals out there. May we be empowering, supporting and inspiring to each other.
