There is no disputing that chocolate recipes are your favourites…luckily they’re mine too! It’s become a hobby of mine to try and replicate some of my favourite flavours in a healthier, homemade way. Previously I’ve covered Crunch, Peppermint Slice and Coconut Rough.
Today we have….choc orange Jaffa!
Cost to make vs purchasing chocolate
It may surprise you to know that to make this delicious, healthy homemade chocolate is actually cheaper per 100 grams than some of the big name brands. Note this is based on purchasing your organic pantry items in reasonably large quantities at good prices!
Cost to make:
$4.79 per batch = $1.62/100gm
Jaffas – $3.99 per pack = $2.00/100gm
Making your own is 37 cents cheaper per gram.
- 100g coconut oil
- 100g nut butter (I used all natural peanut butter)
- 30g raw cacao powder
- 50g rice malt syrup (or honey if you prefer, but use much less)
- 15 drops of Wild Orange Food Grade Oil (I use Doterra)
- Place coconut oil, nut butter, cacao powder and rice malt syrup into Thermomix bowl. Melt 37 °C, spd 2, 2.5 minutes (or until melted).
- Add wild orange oil. Mix to combine, spd 2, 10 to 15 seconds.
- Pour into moulds or a baking tray and refrigerate to set.
• I normally place them straight into the freezer – so they are ready sooner! Should only take a few minutes to set.
• This tastes really yummy when made as a “block” – I have a chocolate block mould, so you can serve it in rows like a store brought chocolate!
• Add some buckini’s or desiccated coconut
