HIIII all!

So excited to share this little variation on my classic favourite from the book, ‘Cranberry Ripe’. Although not everyone in my house is convinced that these are up there with the original bestie, I salivate at the very thought of them, and I’m sure you’ll love them too.

The best part is, they’re sugar free, dairy free, gluten free, and… YESSS allergy free! So feast away to your hearts content knowing that these delicious raw chocolate treats are 100% good for your body, mind and soul…!

Ok enough raving. On to the making 🙂

Raw Chocolate Pineapple Pillows

‘Night-Life’ (because it’s so dark!) Raw Chocolate:

70g raw cacao butter, finely chopped

1 tablespoon organic raw coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder

1- 2 tablespoons raw dark agave or maple syrup

Pinch of sea salt (brings out the flavours)

1/3 cup raw cacao powder or organic cocoa

Melt finely chopped cacao butter and coconut oil in a bowl over another bowl of boiling water. When melted, remove from heat and whisk in all other ingredients until velvety smooth. Line a flat glass dish with greaseproof paper. Pour about 1/3 of of the ‘Nightlife’ Raw Chocolate mixture into the bottom. Chill in the freezer and move on to create the filling. Set aside remaining chocolate, keeping it slightly warm.

Pineapple-Coconut Filling:

100g creamed coconut, chopped

1 rounded tablespoon raw organic coconut oil

2 cups unsweetened (no sugar!) dried pineapple

1/2 cup desiccated coconut

1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder

1 – 2 tablespoons light raw honey, or rice malt syrup if you prefer

WHIZZZ all filling ingredients together in a heavy duty food processor until mixture begins to bind and all pineapple is chopped into tiny pieces. It should blend in with the coconut and making it stick together like a lolly mix! Press on top of chocolate base, top with 1/3 more of the chocolate. Set in the freezer to firm. Cut into squares and drizzle more chocolate over the sides, set again! Done!! <3
