Ingredients
 
 

  • 200 g cacao butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 50 g raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A handful of dried fruit and/or chopped nuts eg sultanas, cranberries, chopped almonds

Instructions
 

  • Place about 5cm of water in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, then place 200g cocoa butter into a heatproof bowl and place it over the water - it shouldn't actually touch the water.
  • Allow the cocoa butter to melt and then carefully remove from the heat.
  • Transfer to a jug (this makes it safer for the kids as it's not hot and also makes it easier for them to pour the liquid into the moulds). Carefully add 3 tbsp maple syrup and 1 tsp vanilla extract and whisk in.
  • Next pour in the 50g cacao powder and whisk that in until smooth.
  • Get your silicone moulds ready and sprinkle a little bit of fruit and nuts into each one.
  • Carefully pour the melted chocolate into each mould and place in the fridge to set for at least half an hour.
  • Once set, remove from the mould and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Notes

You will also need a silicone mould. This made enough for three moulds, or around 30 chocolates, so reduce the quantities if you don't want this many or use fairy cake cases for the remainder.
