Recipe - easy creamy raw vegan chocolates


2 oz / 60g  cacao butter
1/2 oz / 15g cacao powder
11/4 oz / 45g lucuma powder
1/2 tsp vanilla esence
50ml Sweet Freedom liquid sweetener

Melt the cacao butter in a bowl over a pan of hot water  (doesn't need to be on the stove).

Stir in the powders and beat with the spoon until smooth and shiny. Add the vanilla and sweetener and stir in. Pour into chocolate mould.

If you don't have a chocolate mould you can use an ice cube tray if it's a flexible one. It is rather hard to get them out of a stiff one. Alternatively pour into the bottom of a loaf tin to make a bar of choclate. Once set you can pop the bar out by easing a palette knife under one corner,

Leave in a cool place for a few hours or overnight then pop out of the mould and enjoy. The lucuma gives them a mild 'caramac'-like  taste.
