Arrange 14 (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size)mini cupcake liners on a small baking sheet. Set aside.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed. I added about 3 Tablespoons agave total and a pinch more salt (amounts as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size), but it’s completely up to how sweet you prefer your chocolate.
Carefully pour chocolate into 12-14 mini cupcake liners* (or 7 large cupcake liners // amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) and top with more sea salt or cacao nibs (optional).
*You can sub up to 2 Tbsp (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) of the cocoa butter with coconut oil in the recipe. However, cocoa butter is superior! I find that coconut oil tends to separate, get a little oily, and melts easily when touched.
*I tested this chocolate with both raw cacao and cocoa powder and found them both to be delicious! The raw cacao tastes a bit more bitter, while the cocoa was a little less stark and had a more familiar taste on the palette. Cacao wins in health benefits, but cocoa powder wins in taste for me.
*To keep this chocolate raw, use cacao powder and this method (water bath).
*If you don’t have mini cupcake liners, lay parchment paper down on a baking sheet and spread the chocolate into an even layer. Once set, break into bark, or cut into bars (like this).
*If you’re afraid to try cocoa butter, don’t be! It’s so versatile and I use it to make chocolate all the time. I also love it in vegan cheesecake, as well as homemade beauty products. Definitely worth it if you’re a chocolate fan!
