If you're looking for Christmas presents for chocolate lovers, then look no further than these fabulous Choc Chick Chocolate Kits. And, it's not just any chocolate, this is Choc Chick's healthy chocolate made with organic raw cacoa powder and cacao butter, naturally sweetened with Sweet Freedom Natural Sweetener!
Galia, very kindly sent me two kits to try. The starter kit which contains all the ingredients you need to make the chocolate and a recipe sheet and the master kit. This one has larger quantities of cacoa powder, cacoa butter and Sweet Freedom and also includes a recipe book and some cellophane gift bags if you can bear to give the chocolates away!
I made some Salted Pistachio Chocolates yesterday - they are incredibly easy to make and taste delicious! The greenness of the pistachios looks stunning against the dark chocolate and the flavours work wonderfully with the rich chocolate.
Just follow the Choc Chick chocolate making instructions, then spoon teaspoons of cooled melted chocolate onto a tray lined with non stick parchment to form chocolate discs. You could use a piping bag instead, if you prefer. Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle some chopped pistachios in the centre of the discs and finally top with a few flakes of sea salt and leave to set.
Look out for more raw chocolate recipes when I've had time to experiment! If you'd like to buy a Choc Chick Chocolate Kit for a gift, or even to treat yourself, they are available online at www.chocchick.com. They also sell a selection of chocolate moulds too which are perfect for making really professional looking chocolates.
If you've got a favourite raw chocolate recipe that you'd like to share please let me know and I'll try out the recipes, take some photos and publish a selection of them in the run up to Easter next year.
