Day 307 – Raw Old Jamaica Dark Chocolate

Old Jamaica

My mum’s favourite chocolate was always Old Jamaica… inspired by an old favourite, I’ve come up with a raw version…

It seems to go down ok at my place… I wonder how it will at yours?


160g cacao butter, melted

1 1/2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted

110g cacao powder

45g maple syrup

20g (1 Tbsp.) dark rum (not raw – I know)

1 cup raisins


Combine all ingredients together.  (I actually prefer to do this in my Thermomix with the temp set at 37 and on speed 1 stirring).. Alternatively you can combine together in a bowl over steaming water.

Once all combined and melted together, spoon into silicon molds and set in the freezer for 10 -15 mins.

Once set, turn chocolate out from molds and either eat or keep in the fridge for later.

Makes about 15 chocolates and they are extremely rich and delicious – if not a little too decadent 🙂  I’m going to save some for mum when she visits next week 🙂
