It might take up to 10-15 minutes. This method is also called bain-marie method.
  • Crush dates in a food processor or a blender into a paste or small pieces.
  • Add cacao powder and dates into the melted cacao butter and stir well with a whisk or a spoon until everything is well combined.

Add Christmas Flavours to your Chcolate

  • Add to the chocolate while it is still liquid crushed almonds, shredded coconut, hemp seeds, orange zest, ginger powder, and cinnamon powder and mix well. Save some walnuts and orange zest to add on top of your chocolate bar to make it pretty. 
  • Get a container appox 10 x 15 cm. and place a parchment paper inside. Pour the liquid chocolate mass into the container, spread it up with a spatula, and sprinkle walnut pieces and orange zest on top. Then place it in the refrigerator, let it sit for 2-3 hours until completely firm. Then remove the parchment paper and enjoy!   


  1. If you add a carob powder along with cacao, try to stick to the same amount of this component (45-50 g. of powder all together). You can add carob as a part of it or completely substitute cacao powder with it. That way it will be lighter in color and sweeter. 
  2. You can add any of your favorite fruits, nuts, seeds, and spices into the basic vegan chocolate recipe to achieve the desired flavor.
