My first attempt to make a treat (something between a truffle and bark candy) that satisfies my chocolate cravings.

  • 1/4 c. cacao nibs, raw, organic
  • 2 oz. cocoa butter, raw, unrefined, organic
  • 1/4 oz. chocolate, dark, 70%, raw, organic
  • 1 tsp. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 1 1/2 tsp. coconut sugar, organic
  • 1 dsh. vanilla extract, organic
  • 3 tbs. almond butter, organic, raw
  • 2 tbs. coconut milk, unsweetened, full-fat, organic, canned

Melt the cacao nibs, butter, coconut sugar and vanilla over low heat, stirring to avoid burning. The nibs may not melt completely, but that's okay - they add texture, like chocolate chips. Take off stove, set aside. Mix in almond butter and coconut milk (or almond milk). Refrigerate or freeze for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Break into pieces to serve. Store in refrigerator (to avoid melting).
