vegan v’day chocolates

February 9, 2016



I thought these would be perfect to make for Valentines Day 🙂 I love chocolate, orange and ginger combined, so good!

I have used raw, organic crystallised ginger in the middle but you could substitute this for another dried/crystallised fruit if you can’t get hold of ginger!

If you haven’t made home-made chocolates before, don’t be put off, its so easy! I bought my moulds online and they were not expensive at all!

You will need:

75g cacao butter

4 tbsp of rice or maple syrup

3 tbsp of raw cacao powder

1 pinch of salt

1 tsp of vanilla powder

1 teaspoon of organic orange blossom water

2 tbsp buckinis (activated buckwheat) ground roughly with a mortar & pestle (optional)

the juice and rind of 1/2 an orange

1/2 cup of raw, organic crystallised ginger

This makes around 20 small chocolates


  • Melt the cacao butter in a bowl above water.
  • Stir in all of the other ingredients (except the ginger)
  • Spoon the mixture into the moulds but only filling them half way
  • Place a small piece of ginger on the chocolate (see picture below) and place in the freezer for around 30 mins, until set.
  • Pull out of the freezer and top with the remainder of the melted chocolate
  • Place back into the freezer for another 30 mins until set
  • Enjoy x x
