Directions

Base

  1. Melt the cacao butter double boiler style*. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Add all ingredients (including the cooled cacao butter) to a mixing bowl and combine. Spoon the mixture into the base of 6 silicone cupcake moulds. Take time to press down, and create an even base. Set in the fridge.

Dark chocolate layer

  1. Melt the cacao butter double boiler style*. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to a high-speed blender, and blitz until very smooth (about 1 minute). Add cacao butter and blend for a further 30 seconds. Pour this layer on top of the bases, and then tap the moulds to create an even layer. Set in the freezer overnight, and in the meantime make the white chocolate layer.

* A double boiler typically consists of a flat-bottomed insert (you can use a bowl) that fits snugly over a pan of simmering water; there is a gap between the water level and the bottom of the bowl so the item in the top of the double boiler is heated by the steam from the liquid below, not the hot water.

Creating nutritious vegan treats is just one of my passions, and when I'm not in the kitchen you'll find me pottering in my veggie garden, pushing a pram loaded with my two kids up hilly bush tracks, singing (without tune) to Otis Redding or enjoying my 10th cup of herbal tea for the day. I hope you likely recipes as much as I do!
