Cacao butter tends to melt quite easily, so only melt the butter gently over a low heat and be careful not to boil in order to preserve the natural nutrients and antioxidants.
Once you have made your chocolates, these should be stored in the fridge or freezer. If stored in the fridge, your chocolates can last for up to 4 days or up to 10 days in the freezer… if you haven't of course gobbled them up beforehand!
Store the cacao butter in a cool dark place.
I love chocolate! Chocolate has always been a big part of my life and some of my earliest childhood memories are of making and eating chocolate as a child in South America.
Having rediscovered the chocolate of my childhood here in the UK, I resolved to set up CHOC Chick to promote the pure goodness of chocolate in its raw state and bring the delights and benefits of raw chocolate to everyone.
I must also confess to not being one who spent a lot of time in the kitchen. As a working mum, cooking was more of a chore and never a relaxing experience for me. What really amazed me was how simple and enjoyable making raw chocolate is and how much I enjoy experimenting and thinking of new ingredients to add to the chocolates.
The best part really was discovering how good for you raw chocolate is. The more I read about the benefits and properties of raw chocolate, the more amazed I was that raw chocolate ingredients aren't simply a household staple, easily found in any shop. Not only is raw chocolate considered a "super food" chock full of antioxidants containing over 300 nutritional compounds, but made with Agave syrup the home made chocolates have a low glycemic index and are lactose and gluten free. Raw chocolate is also a recognised anti depressant, mood enhancer, appetite suppressant and my ultimate favourite...aphrodisiac!
I of course started making large quantities of chocolates for my family, friends, dinner parties, school fairs and any occasion I could find. Sunday mornings in our household have become infused with the smells of melting cocoa butter and chocolate powder and my children adore helping me and of course eating the chocolates!
This rediscovery was too good to keep to myself and circle of friends, so I resolved to spread the word and make easy-to-use raw chocolate kits available to others. And so the first CHOC Chick Kit was born.
