Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 large organic candy canes
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups raw cacao powder or substitute cocoa or carob

Instructions

  1. Carefully melt coconut oil in medium saucepan over low heat.
  2. Stir in honey. Turn off heat.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and whisk gently to combine.
  4. Work quickly after whisking to pour into silicone molds, stirring occasionally in between pouring the mixture into the candy molds. Ensure that the honey and oil do not separate (or there will be candies that are bitter and some that are too sweet).
  5. Freeze one hour. Pop candies out of molds and store in the fridge or freezer. Serve cold.

If you are wondering why it is necessary to make 50 of these at a time ... here is my attempt to convince you:

  • The less dishes the better
  • Batch cooking saves time
  • They keep forever in the freezer
  • Its chocolate. Period.
