Debbie’s Raw Chocolate Candy

Chocolate is one of my favorite things. It's been one of the hardest things to truly give up. Fortunately raw chocolate is a great and healthier replacement to processed chocolates. I love making raw chocolate candy over the holidays. This next recipe is one of my very first raw chocolate candy recipes. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
½ or more of melted (carefully-keep it raw) raw cacao butter
½ cup of melted (carefully-keep it raw) cold press raw coconut oil or butter
3 capsules/or 1-2 tsp. fo-ti (ho shou wu)
1 T mesquite powder
1 T lucuma powder
2 T raw organic Agave syrup
1 T organic maple syrup (not raw)
2 T raw Carob powder
2 handfuls raw cacao nibs
½ cup or more raw cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground Cinnamon

Preparation:
Mix all the ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor until creamy and smooth. Pour into candy molds and freeze for about 1 hour. These chocolates are best kept refrigerated or frozen, but can handle cooler room temperatures in an air-tight container.
