Little Green Spoon’s Dark Orange Chocolates

IMG_8928

These are the perfect healthy Halloween treat. Recently I’ve been loving orange chocolate and with the week that’s in it, the colour combination is perfect. I use orange zest for the zingy orange flavour but you can use a little orange extract too if you like, although it can be tricky to find. The zest gives these beautiful flavour and the dark chocolate is perfectly rich with a yummy sweetness and so satisfyingly snappy, just the way I like it.

Ingredients:
Makes 10-12

100g of Cacao Butter
4 Tablespoons of Cacao Powder
2-3 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup
Zest of 2 Oranges

Step 1: Put a saucepan on low-medium heat and add in the cacao butter. When it’s all melted, take it off the heat.
Step 2: Add in the cacao powder and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and whisk well. Taste it for sweetness and add in another tablespoon of maple syrup if needed.
Step 3: Zest your oranges and whisk in the zest.
Step 4: Get your chocolate moulds (silicone ice trays work well too) out and whisk your chocolate once more. Use a spoon to fill the moulds one at a time, whisking the mixture a few times to stop the chocolate and sweetener from separating.
Step 5: Pop the moulds in the fridge to set and then serve.IMG_8922This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegan and paleo. For more healthy recipes check out www.thelittlegreenspoon.com and follow Indy on Instagram @thelittlegreenspoon and Twitter @littlegspoon
