notes

Cacao is the bean that chocolate is made from. In its raw state, it contains nearly four times the antioxidant content of processed chocolate.

Ecuadorian cacao has a rich, smooth flavour that is ideal for hot chocolate drinks and raw chocolate recipes.

If you love orange and chocolate together, add 1 teaspoon of orange zest in with the melting chocolate. Make sure you finely zest the orange peel.

Antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties, make orange zest a delicious addition to cacao recipes.

Makes sure you use oranges that are grown without the use of pesticides, so there is no toxic chemical residue on the peel.

Organic, Medjool date syrup has an earthy sweetness to it. Maple or Medjool are both delicious in this recipe.

If you cannot find organic couverture chocolate drops, use dark, organic chocolate.

enjoy!
