I love chocolate. Always have and always will. But if I’m going to eat it I want the real deal. I’m talking about REAL chocolate made from raw cacao powder, raw cacao butter and a natural unrefined sweetener like maple syrup or dates. I don’t want some poor imitation made with soy lecithins, sugar, agave syrup (which is 90% fructose), milk powders, flavours and artificial ingredients (read the ingredients on some Cadbury’s chocolate and you’ll get my drift). There is no chocolate that I know of that ticks all of these boxes…which is why I started making my own years ago. Raw cacao powder is high in antioxidents, and raw cacao butter is high in healthy saturated fats. I want my children and family to enjoy the sublime taste of real chocolate especially at Easter time. I pop chocolate coconut balls and almond coconut balls (both sweetened only with dates) into coloured plastic egg containers and hide them around the garden for an Easter egg hunt for the children and their friends. If you want your kids, family and friends to enjoy real chocolate for Easter without any of the nasties, pick up a bag of my hand-made chocolate coconut balls…..its the real (raw) deal!
