For quite some time now, I have been wondering how to make white chocolate without all the refined sugars and ugly ingredients. I, of course, went to google and found some great recipes and decided to try and create my own. My first attempt, I used coconut flour and cacao butter. Now that was a mistake. It looked good, but didn't taste right. It was very grainy. I turned to cashews the second time around. Score. They tasted really great. I actually made these for little E for Easter. I wrapped them up with aluminum foil and hide them around the house. Next year I will try to find some egg molds.

Black and White Chocolate
Yields: 20 small chocolates
- 1/2 cup cacao butter, melted
- 1 cup of cashews; soaked 2-4 hours
- 3 Tbsp of sweetener of choice; honey, maple syrup, agave etc.
- 1 Tbsp of powdered vanilla or liquid flavor
- 1 tsp of lucuma powder (optional)
- 1/2 cup of coconut oil; melted
- 1/2 cup of raw cacao powder
- 1 Tbsp of vanilla powder or liquid flavor
- 1/4 cup of sweetener of choice; honey, maple syrup, agave etc.
- Place the cashews, sweetener, vanilla, and lucuma in a high powered blender. Blend until creamy.
- Add the melt cacao butter. Blend until creamy.
- Pour into small chocolate molds or ice cube trays (that is what I used).
- Place in the freezer until firm.
- Put the cacao powder and coconut oil in a bowl. Stir.
- Add the sweetener and vanilla.
- Stir until well combined.
- Once the white chocolate is firm, cover with black chocolate.
- Place in the freezer.
Tips and notes
- You can use this recipe for black chocolate.
- You can add more sweetness, if needed.
- If you don't have chocolate molds or ice cube trays, you could simply use a glass container and cut the chocolate into squares once firm.
- If you want a less chewy white chocolate, perhaps try using less cashews. [/print_this]
