Recipe Directions

  • 1. If coconut oil is hard/solid place it oil in a bowl. Then place bowl inside a BIGGER bowl that is filled with hot water so that it will melt. Don't mix them together, though! You just want to liquify the pure coconut oil for use in this raw chocolates recipe.
  • 2. Blend all raw chocolates recipe ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Must use a blender!! (Hand mixing or whisking will not be enough to properly combine the ingredients.)
  • 3. As fast as you can, place chocolate mixture in chocolate molds to be set in the freezer (or pour into a small glass baking dish to set in the fridge until set). Do not let it sit! (Ingredients will seperate if you are too slow.)
  • 4. Freeze for at least 3 hours (ideally longer). Store in freezer at all times.
  • 5. Once frozen, enjoy! (If not using molds, cut into bars after they are solidly frozen.)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

These raw chocolates are super easy to make and all you need is a blender and a freezer.

Your chocolates must be kept in the freezer all the time, otherwise they will melt :)

I recently updated the photography for this recipe. I used these adorable little silicone chocolate molds to get such cute little chocolate squares. They turned out perfectly!

Also, in the pictures you can see there is some discoloration from where the coconut oil seperated a little bit. Don't sweat it, they still taste to die for.

Lastly, you can definitely halve this recipe for a smaller batch.

Tip: You must be ready to pour these into your molds immediately after blending! Do not let the recipe sit at all, or it will separate. Speed is of the essence!

Hi Sarah,
I am not sure why you wouldn't be able to use cacao butter in this recipe. So many recipes online with these exact ingredients, but with cacao butter. The only caveat is that the cacao butter, and the cacao powder are usually used in equal amounts. This morning actually I am making some chocolate, and I will be using cacao butter. Do some more research, and I think you'll find a solution to the coconut issue. In Kindness, Jen

Of course cocoa butter can be used. That's what chocolate is made with for goodness sake. Coconut oil is just another type of oil you can use but it's crertainly not the only type...

I added some goji berries in the mixture and also used half carob, half cacao powder and only added half of the recommended quantity of agave... the thing is the coconut oil kind of separated from the rest of the mixture after I mixed them all together with a hand mixer. Not sure what I did wrong:( I put the mixture on a large plate in the fridge but I had to discard half of the oil... Really curious how it will turn...
Any ideas what I might have done wrong?

I have to stir, stir, stir like crazy to keep the oil from running away. After it starts to cool and harden a little, it will incorporate itself better.

Hi Sarah, did you use coconut oil and did you put it in the fridge or freezer? If so, they should definitely harden :)

I've been making chocolate like this for quite a while now using maple syrup and it always works out beautifully!

Also- freeze some bananas onto popsicle sticks and dip them in the liquid chocolate mixture (then coat with crushed peanuts or walnuts if you want) - trust me, you'll be in love!

Ahh! I think I might be in love! I haven't tried these yet, but I definitely can't wait to try.
I just recently came across a recipe for raw caramel and I'd love to fill these with it. Mmmmmmm. I'm about to make my non-raw bf extremely jealous.
