Alternative Dairy Free ‘Milk’ Chocolate Bar

Alternative Dairy Free ‘Milk’ Chocolate Bar

So a few weeks back I did a dairy free milk chocolate made with cashew nut butter and powdered coconut sugar - it's sooooooo good but in some way is dependent on the coconut sugar being powdered for the smoothness and I know that this can be a bit tricky - but have no fear here I have alternative recipe..........



Milk Chocolate New 0001


Made with RealFoodSource's delicious oragnic 67% coconut sugar chocolate couverture drops (if you haven't tried these I would definitely put them on your list of musts for your cupboard - I find them invaluable for speedy baking - sooooo good in cookies, melted and drizzled for a quick topping, or used as a shell for your favourtie chocolate bar.)

This non dairy 'milk' chocolate bar is super easy to make and each bite is perfectly smooth and creamy with very little effort. The method is important for ensuring a good mix. Start by melting the chocolate drops and mix in the other ingredients one at a time - starting with the coconut oil then the cashew nut butter, the vanilla powder and finally the maple syrup.

I would set these in the freeze firstly because they will be ready sooner - I mean seriously how long do we want to wait for chocolate and secondly setting quickly will make sure the maple syrup doesn’t separate from the rest of the chocolate - if this happens you'll get a slight marbled effect - a bit like a slightly heavier version of an aero bar (which is still super delicious!) You'll probably want to store this one in the fridge.
