Raw (fudgy) white chocolate Easter eggs

It's that time of year again when I break out my Easter egg moulds and go raw chocolate crazy! This year we decided to create a white chocolate recipe for a change, and on the spur of the moment decided it would be a great time to make the first 'The Boo the Bear and the goji berries' video!

We hope you enjoy watching this rather disorganised chaos, and that you can see how easy making raw white chocolate is; it's all about intuitive cooking again, not being afraid to play around with food and having a lot of fun too!

Try these out for Easter, they really are very special, somewhere between a white chocolate and a fudge, and pretty guilt free too, you can't get much better than that.... However, if you are fancying something a little more traditional like a good old fashioned super nutritious raw dark choc, check out this recipe I made for Easter last year....

Raw (fudgy) white chocolate Easter eggs

100g raw cacao butter
1 tbsp raw virgin coconut oil
1 tbsp raw honey (for this recipe we like the set honey, if you're vegan use yacon or maple syrup)
4 tbsp yacon root powder*
1 1/2 - 2 tbsp lucuma powder
7 drops of cold extracted vanilla OR the seeds from one vanilla pod

Gently melt the cacao butter and coconut oil in a bowl over a saucepan of lightly simmering water until melted. Add the honey and mix well until all melted together into a beautiful golden liquid. Add the vanilla drops / seeds and sir well. Set aside.

In another bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix well, smashing down any lumps that may be in the powders. Pour the beautiful golden liquid into the powders and blend well until smooth and creamy, like a batter mixture. Pout this into your moulds and leave to set in the fridge for an hour or so!

*If you have trouble finding the yacon root powder, you can substitute with more lucuma, or even ground up macadamia nuts. This will change the colour and the flavour as lucuma is very fruity and has an almost toffee like taste, while yacon has a subtle sweet taste that is more neutral. It will still taste super yummy....

The finished eggs!
