Method

  • Melt cacao butter in a double boiler or in a glass mixing bowl set over a small saucepan with 1 inch of water over medium heat. 
  • Once melted, remove from heat and add maple syrup and whisk to combine. When the mixture is completely fluid with no separation, add cacao or cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Whisk to thoroughly combine.
  • Taste and adjust sweetness if needed – I found 100ml to be perfect but that’s my taste, feel free to add more if you want to.
  • Pour the chocolate into moulds (if you have them), mini paper cupcake liners, or simply line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the chocolate on top. Top with roasted almonds, chopped dried apricots, and a sprinkle of salt.
  • Set in the refrigerator or freezer to harden for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Once completely solid, break or cut into pieces/bars. These can be kept at room temperature for serving. But for best freshness, store chocolate in an airtight container or freezer bag in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks, or the freezer for 1-2 months.
