Maple Tahini Chocolate

Did you know you can MAKE chocolate with ingredients you likely have on hand right now?  No, I’m not fooling you! Crave-worthy, wholesome chocolate can be yours with about 5 minutes of prep time and half an hour in the freezer to set.  Amazing!

I’ve made a batch of this yummy chocolate for my son’s Easter basket.  No junk, no refined sugar.  Cacao powder.  Virgin coconut oil.  Sea salt.  Tahini.  Pure maple syrup.  That’s it.

There’s only one downside: since the base is coconut oil, it’ll soften considerably at room temperature.  It’s best to store this in the freezer or fridge.

There’s a fun silicone mold you can use to actually make a bar of chocolate.  You can find the one I have here.  You can also use silicone muffin liners and just fill them about 1/2″ to make little chocolate cups.

The addition of cacao nibs is completely optional, but it gives the chocolate a little crunch that we find really satisfying.  Try it! 🙂

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Sprinkle cacao nibs, if using, over the bottom of the mold(s) you are using.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil over medium low heat. Add cacao powder, tahini, and sea salt. Stir until smooth.
  3. Pour chocolate mixture into mold(s) and transfer to the freezer to set. I like to place the molds onto a baking sheet before I pour the chocolate in so that its easier to move to the freezer without spilling any.
  4. Store hardened chocolate in the freezer or fridge and enjoy!
