  1. Begin by making your raspberry rose caramel filling. Add all the filling ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and place to one side
  2. Slowly melt the cacao butter over a ban marie on a low heat. You can turn off the heat if it's getting too warm, and give it a quick blast if it's starting to set again. This is as you would with our basic raw chocolate recipe
  3. Add the raw cacao powder to the bowl and stir in well
  4. Add the Sweet Freedom and vanilla, then mix in really well until you have a smooth chocolate mixture
  5. Using a teaspoon, pour a little chocolate into each cell of your mould, swirling it round to coat the side slightly also
  6. Place the mould into the fridge for a few minutes to firm up. Keep the remaining chocolate mixture warm while they set
  7. Spoon the raspberry rose filling into each cell of the mould, trying to keep it to the centre rather than touch the sides
  8. Using the teaspoon, carefully pour some chocolate into each cell to cover the filling
  9. Refrigerate for a few hours to allow them to set
  10. Enjoy!
