Rich, bitter dark chocolate, spiced with a hint of ginger. The best thing – it only takes ten minutes to whip up – seriously!
Makes: About a standard block of chocolate Time: 10 mins
Ingredients: 3/4 cup cacao (or cocoa) powder, 1 tablespoon of ground ginger, 1/4 cup coconut oil (semi soft is best, but work with your climate!), 2 tablespoons of honey (or more if you’re not sweet enough) a small grind of salt.
Steps: Combine cacao, ginger and salt in a bowl. Add in your coconut oil and honey and stir it up well with a wooden spoon – it will look kind of like a very thick paste. You should only just be able to stir it. Add more cacao if it seems too wet, and more coconut oil if it seems too dry. Jam all the chocolate paste between two bits of baking powder, then roll it out with a rolling pin. Pop it in the freezer for a few minutes. Take it out and slice with a sharp knife. Enjoy!
