Ingredients:

Chocolate

  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • ⅓ cup of cacao butter
  • ¼ cup of coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp of maple syrup
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 scoops of fermented organic gut superfoods+ orange ginger
  • 2 tbsp of freshly squeezed orange juice

Topping

  • ¼ cup of crushed pistachios
  • ¼ cup of chopped candied ginger
  • ¼ cup of chopped of dried apricot
  • ¼ cup of shredded orange zest or thinly sliced orange peel
  • a couple thinly sliced lightly roasted oranges *optional (needs to be done before assembly)
  • 3 tbsp of raw cacao nibs

Directions:

    1. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
    1. Create a double boiler by filling one larger pot with water and placing a smaller bowl or pot inside. Slowly heat the water on the stove. Make sure no water gets into the inside pot this will ruin the melting chocolate!
    1. Once the water has been heated, add all chocolate-making ingredients into the small pot and stir slowly as it melts. Make sure all the ingredients are completely melted and mixed before moving onto the next step.
    1. When your chocolate is completely mixed, turn the heat off and keep stirring for about one minute. Mix in the 2 scoops of fermented organic gut superfoods+ orange ginger and freshly squeezed orange juice. Continue to stir until thoroughly mixed.
    1. Scoop the chocolate mix onto the baking tray lined with parchment paper. Using a spatula or back of a large spoon, slowly spread out the chocolate mix evenly until it covers the entire tray.
    1. Once your chocolate mix has been spread out evenly on your tray, sprinkle all of the topping ingredients over top.
    1. Once you have covered your mix with all the toppings, carefully place the tray into your freezer and let it sit for at least 4 hours or, for best results, overnight. Once the chocolate has firmed up, break it apart with your hands into desired sizes and shapes. Or cut with a knife of pizza cutter for a clean-edge look!
    1. Store in a seal glass container in the freezer until ready to eat. Do not let chocolate sit out for too long, it will melt after some time.
