Ingredients

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup increase for a sweeter chocolate
  • 1-2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract increase for a sweeter chocolate
  • Dash of Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Cocoa
  • 1/4 Cup chopped Walnut pieces other nuts can be substituted
  • 1/4 Cup chopped Macadamia halves other nuts can be substituted
  • 1/2 Cup chopped Sultanas can be replaced with, or a combination of used, Raisons, Craisons, dried Fruits

Optional

Instructions

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Melt the Coconut Oil in a medium sized saucepan over a low heat. Add the maple syrup, vanilla and stir til combined.
  • Add the cocoa and salt and stir until well mixed and no cocoa lumps remain.
  • Add the nuts, sultanas and seeds (or which ever combination you choose) and stir to coat all the add ins.
  • Pour the fruit and nut chocolate into a lined and lightly greased medium sized baking tray or a 20cm (8inch) square cake tin. The chocolate should be thin (not like a block of chocolate).
  • Place the chocolate in the freezer to set for at least 1 hour (longer is fine) before making into chocolate chips.
  • Break the chocolate into pieces and make into chocolate chips (I prefer to use the smash method of breaking chocolate using a rolling pin).
  • Store the chocolate chips in the freezer.
