Method

  1. Place a clean bowl over a saucepan of hot water (bain marie). Ensure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water & no water goes inside the bowl
  2. Grate the cacao butter, add to the bowl & allow to melt slowly. Don’t keep the water boiling, turn the heat off and just give it a quick blast every so often if necessary

  3. Once melted, add the cacao powder & stir in thoroughly with a balloon whisk or fork, until it starts to slightly thicken

  4. Add 1 tbsp of Sweet Freedom & stir in very thoroughly. It will thicken as you add the Sweet Freedom
    adding the Sweat Freedom
  5. Taste it and if you prefer it sweeter, add more 1/2 tbsp at a time, mixing thoroughly and tasting after each
  6. When the mixture suits your taste, pour gently into the mould using a jug or spoon
    poring your chocolate mixture into the mould
  7. Place it in the fridge to set for an hour or more (or in the freezer if you can’t wait that long)
  8. Any remaining chocolate is the chocolatier’s treat!

Storage

Your raw chocolates are untempered, which means they need to be kept in the fridge for the best experience. If you don't they will go grainy, so trust us, keep em in an airtight container in the fridge!

When you do, they will keep for up to 4 weeks (even longer in the freezer), though we doubt they will actually last that long as you'll be enjoying them
