Raw Chilli Coconut Chocolate Recipe

In Wholefoods the other day, I bought a Raw Chocolate Chilli Pie. It was delicious and inspired me to make my own. I didn’t have all the ingredients listed on the label so I had a look for a raw chilli chocolate recipe using cacao powder and coconut oil and stumbled across this raw chocolate recipe. Their recipe calls for cacao butter, which I didn’t have, so I used coconut oil instead.

These raw chocolates are delicious – why did I only make six of them; they’ll be gone in no time! They only take a couple of minutes to make and you could add any flavourings you want. I added desiccated coconut to mine – next time I think I’ll add a bit of vanilla, too.

  1. Ahhhh this post made me smile – Because I discovered ‘Raw Choc Pie’ on a blog last year and ordered a load on discovery of how darn good they are. However they do get costly, so I found the same recipe and brought cacobutter,lumca etc on a whim and now make raw chocolate all the time. I’m yet to try it with chill because I’m hopeless with spice but I do add a few pinches of chocolate protein powder to the mix which actually makes it a tiny bit more creamy. I think adding coconut/rock salt sounds ace, I’ve done the whole dollop PB in the center a few times also (they don’t last long).

    1. Great minds, eh? I love the idea of adding a dollop of peanut butter – definitely going to do that next time!
