Easy Vegan Chocolate

  1. Arrange 14 mini cupcake liners on a small baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. Add 2 inches of water to a large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Then set a medium glass or ceramic mixing bowl on top, making sure it’s not touching the water (this creates a “double boiler”).
  3. To the mixing bowl, add finely chopped cocoa butter and let melt for about 2–3 minutes.
  4. Once melted, add the maple syrup or agave nectar and use a whisk or wooden spoon to mix until fluid and thoroughly combined. Remove bowl and set on a flat surface. Also, turn off stove-top heat and set the saucepan aside.
  5. Add cacao or cocoa powder, vanilla (optional), and sea salt (optional), and whisk to combine until there are no clumps.
  6. Taste and adjust flavor as needed. I added about 3 Tablespoons agave total and a pinch more salt.
  7. Carefully pour chocolate into 12–14 mini cupcake liners and top with more sea salt or cacao nibs (optional).
  8. Transfer chocolate to the freezer or refrigerator to set (around 10 minutes).
  9. Enjoy straight from the freezer, refrigerator, or at room temperature. Store leftovers in a well-sealed container in the refrigerator for 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
