Here we go… This recipe has a massive warning sign on it: 𝗗𝗢 𝗡𝗢𝗧 𝗘𝗔𝗧 𝗔𝗙𝗧𝗘𝗥 𝟲 𝗣𝗠!!!

A couple of tips on the cacao. Cacao butter should not be deodorized. This means it should have a slight chocolate smell to it so when you buy it in the packet and it's in cacao butter drops they are normally deodorized, so be mindful of that. If you are in Australia and wondering where to buy cacao butter, you can get it from Source Bulk Foods online or in-store.


220g cacao butter

125ml coconut oil

125ml smooth peanut butter

250g cacao powder

1 tsp vanilla bean

250ml maple syrup
