Recipe Directions

1. Put Medjool dates in the blender, barely cover with water, and soak for 15-30 minutes. Then blend until smooth.

2. Put in cacao powder and continue blending until well combined.

3. Then add coconut oil and blend until the mixture is nice and smooth, and all the oil is absorbed.

4. Add whatever flavorings you desire (essential oils, fresh herbs, fruit, nuts, coconut, nut butter, or just leave plain).

5. Put individual serving size portions on paper lined tray or in decorative candy cups (mini-muffin cups, etc.)

6. Freeze for at least an hour to harden.

This makes a heavenly Chocolate Candy Base for those that don’t want/can’t use honey, agave, or other syrups. We don’t tolerate those, but can indulge in Medjool dates. :) 

This makes a nice, thick, smooth chocolate that, when frozen to set up, keeps its form very well and has a great texture.

And yes, this also makes a wonderful, smooth, and creamy icing for raw cakes!

These can be kept in the fridge or freezer after they set up. They didn’t get too hard in the freezer after being left overnight.

Have fun with it, and let me know what variations you come up with!

Enjoy!

This is really great--thanks! I made it with orange zest and a pinch of salt.

I made my son's birthday cake this year with the Cinnamon Donut Holes Recipe - I still need to post - with this for the icing! It was Awesome! See pictures on my blog - www.luv-2b-raw.blogspot.com I've just recently started putting up pictures of my raw creations, so there aren't too many yet. But I have all of last years pictures to post still, so check back from time to time to see what I post. Thanks.

Probably not too long (no more than an hour) since they are made with coconut oil.

If you want them to be more stable at room temperature, you should substitute cacao butter for the coconut oil.

How long do these hold up at room temp. after they are refrigerated and settled?

Oh Yes! I'm sure it would. If you don't fridge it, it doesn't harden.
