We love delicious chocolate treats when they’re made with high quality, nourishing ingredients and this raw rocky road hits the mark entirely!
Using some of our favorite pantry staples for sweets this recipe is sure to stun the most skeptical of eaters when it comes to raw desserts. Not only that but it is loaded with nourishment from all of the gorgeous coconut, seeds, and dried fruits!
Pour boiling water into the bottom of a double boiler (or just two bowls on top of each other) and combine cacao butter and coconut oil in the top. Melt the two by gently stirring every so often. *If using two bowls, use a plate as a lid over the top bowl helps to speed up the process.
Remove from the heat and stir in maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well with a fork, or whisk to ensure everything is well combined.
Add in the cacao powder and mix with a fork or whisk again until incorporated and glossy.
Add the ‘add-ins’ to the mix, stir well, then pour into a lined loaf baking tin or Tupperware container and place in the freezer to set.
Wait at least an hour before slicing your rocky road and devouring!
