I never thought of this website to be a food blog, but after a while I reconsidered. Every now and then a recipe won’t do any harm. After all, on a cold autumn evening nothing will improve the mood like handmade and homemade chocolate. And not just any chocolate, but raw, made directly from cocoa beans! Forget about supermarket treats or pseudo-chocolate recipes straight from hell (take cocoa powder, addhalf a kilo of butter, a kilo of sugar, mix until smooth and voila ‘!)
Let’s make some real chocolate instead.
The stakes are high. I dare to claim that if you’ve never tried chocolate made direclty from cocoa bean, this will blow your mind away.
Ingredients to prepare 70% chocolate :
- 70 grams of any cocoa beans
- 30 grams of cane sugar
- Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
- Coffee grinder (version for hipsters : mortar)
- Grind cocoa beans and sugar until smooth ( approx. 10 min.).
- Add cinnamon and/or nutmeg to taste
Eat with a teaspoon of same, or sprinkle over your favorite dessert. I recommend to sprinkle it over vanilla ice cream. It’s a match made in heaven!
It really is so simple and yet so delicious! If you tried this at home, let me know in the comment section.
