Finding the right recipe for raw chocolate is easy but finding one that hardeners and looks wonderful to use as a chocolate coating is a bit more challenging. I went through 3 recipes yesterday till I found this winner.
This is one of those times when double dipping is encouraged. I didn’t do it for this in the photo to the right but if you want to create a thicker chocolate skin around your treat, keep on dipping! Simply dip your item in the chocolate, remove it, allow it to set, then dip it again. Feel free to repeat the process as many times as you want.
Sunflower lecithin is made up of essential fatty acids and B vitamins. It helps to support healthy function of the brain, nervous system and cell membranes. It also lubricates joints; helps break up cholesterol in the body.
It comes in two forms, powder and liquid. I prefer the powdered form lecithin. Setting aside all the nutritional benefits, it is a natural emulsifier that binds the fats from nuts with water creating a creamy consistency. In this recipe the lecithin also adds a nice smoothness. It is optional but highly recommend it.
