Cacao Lab pure cacao is great for this, but you can also use Ora Cacao discs – either pure or the ones with added herbs, mushrooms and spices.) Here’s a list of all my favorite ceremonial cacao brands you can buy online).
1/3-1 cup of cacao butter – these cacao butter wafers are great (adjust the amount based on how intense and dark you like your chocolate)
1/2-1 cup coconut sugar or another sweetener of your choice (adjust the amount based on how sweet you want it to be)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt, and 1/4 more to sprinkle on top
Optional booster: 1 teaspoon reishi mushroom powder or another mushroom powder you like
Topping ideas: 1/2 cup total chopped roasted almonds, pistachios, roasted cashews, goji berries, sesame seeds, or any other nuts and seeds you like.
Place chopped cacao and cacao butter into a metal bowl. Use a double boiler on a stove top, and melt it on low heat. Continue whisking or stirring so that your cacao doesn’t burn.
Once it’s melted, turn off the heat.
Add sweetener and stir in until consistent.
Add sea salt.
If you’re adding a mushroom powder, add it now and mix well.
Prepare your molds. Make sure the sweetener is consistently mixed in (coconut sugar tends to float to the bottom). Pour the chocolate paste into molds. If you don’t have chocolate molds, you can use tapperware, tapperware lids or ice cube trays.
Sprinkle the toppings evenly, including additional sea salt, if you like a little bit of a salt kick with your chocolate.
Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate hardens.
Enjoy! Set an intention before you eat, if that speaks to you.
Keep in the fridge in a jar or another container until your ceremonial chocolate is gone ♥️
