After my first bite of these chocolates, my eyes widened and I actually said to myself  “are you KIDDING me!??”. I couldn’t believe how delicious they were!

Never having made chocolates before, surprisingly it is fairly easy. You just need a little patience for the cacao to melt and that’s about it 😉

 You won’t have to feel guilty eating these! Cacao is one of the most stable fats around, it provides a healthy dose of omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. Cacao Butter contains natural antioxidants, as well as nutrients that support mood and the immune system.
