Raw Chocolate Easter Nests

Author: Well Nourished

 

Ingredients:

300g of slivered almonds, toasted ( you can also sliver your own in the food processor)

200g of shredded coconut 

100g of almond meal 

 

Raw Chocolate:

200g of raw cacao butter, or extra virgin coconut oil (or combination 100g of both)

30g of cacao powder 

2-6 tablespoons of sweetener such as maple syrup, coconut or rice malt syrup

Method

  1. Toast your almonds and coconut.
  2. Melt the cacao butter or coconut oil over a very low heat, either in a small pot or Thermomix (temp 50, speed 1) until just melted.
  3. Add the cacao powder and maple syrup, mix until well combined. 
  4. Combine the slivered almonds, coconut, and nut meal in a bowl. Add the raw chocolate and stir until well combined.
  5. If you would like a darker nest, add a tablespoon or two more cacao.
  6. Line a muffin tin and press one tablespoon of the mix into the base.  Add another tablespoon (approx.) and press into the sides to make a small basket.
  7. Place in the freezer immediately to set.  Once set, remove the muffin casing and keep in an airtight container in the freezer until ready to serve.
