2 tablespoons raw cacao beans or nibs
2 tablespoons raw coconut butter
1 tablespoon raw agave nectar or raw honey
Fresh Fruit (for filling; I used organic figs and baby bananas)
1. Put cacao beans or nibs, coconut butter, and raw sweetener into food processor.
2. Process until ingredients unite. This mixture will be slightly chunky. I like mine that way, it reminds me of coconut flavored chocolate chips.
3. If you want it creamier, than use cacao powder. You can always add a dash of water here and there to get the texture more buttery.
4. Carefully scoop centers out of your fruit.
5. Fill centers full. Indulge and enjoy.
A deserving delectable desert! I paired mine with chocolate-mint tea (water and chocolate mint leaves from my garden--you can brew it in the sun or serve warm.).
It would also be wonderful with a small glass of nut milk or coconut water.
This desert is very easy to make. Treat yourself to this fast and fabulous finger food!
Also great for hot dates. Makes a sexy sweet!
Additions: If you want to jazz it up even more (trust me, it’s sweet already), add vanilla bean, cinnamon, cayenne, raw flavored extracts, etc. I fancy tasting the bitter-sweet symphony of raw cacao and coconut butter together.
Well, the photo looks a tad bit off or maybe I’m just odd minded lol. It tasted great though!
Got leftover filling? Little did I know this super short list of ingredients could make a wonderful piece of raw chocolate candy.
I decided to put my leftover filling into a little stainless steel cup, cover it, and place it in the fridge. I took it out a few hours later and it made a divine piece of raw chocolate candy. Almost like one of those Mounds or Almond Joy candy bars.
Next time, I will place a few raw almonds in the middle before setting. It would also be awesome with nut butter in the middle.
I am not a fan of leftovers but after this experience I would be glad to get stuck with leftover filling!
So make a little extra and put your filling into some cute containers or ice cube shape trays (I have hello kitty ones!) and set in the fridge.
Come on chocoholics, get crafty!
