Mad Millie’s Raw Cacao Chocolate Kit contains everything you need to get started in making plain raw chocolate.
I made my first batch of plain chocolate bars which took approximately 30 minutes. I placed them in the fridge to set. They were ready in around 3 hours. The chocolate was tasty, but on the bitter side due to the coconut sugar.
The instructions were easy to follow and there’s even a video you could watch. I didn’t end up using the wraps and labels, but these would be handy if you were giving the chocolate away as gifts.
The second batch was quicker to make. I tasted the cacao butter and I was surprised it wasn’t that great by itself.
Handy tip – water is the enemy of chocolate
The box contains:
- Raw organic cacao butter
- Raw organic cacao powder

Additional kitchen equipment you will need:

There are lots of other recipes in the booklet. Be tempted by milky or mylk chocolate (335), Island Bliss truffles, chocolate truffles, velvet chocolate mousse, and raw chocolate brownie.
Did you know that aw cacao (and chocolate) are also a great source of magnesium, iron and a general mood enhancer?
