Delicious raw chocolate bar recipe from The Park Centre Health Foods


Try this yummy recipe as a healthy alternative to chocolate! All ingredients are available to purchase from The Park Centre Health Foods.


- 100g of cacao butter

- 6 tablespoons of cacao powder

- 2-4 tablespoons of Agave syrup



Place the raw cacao butter in a bowl over a pan of water on a low heat and melt gently. Once melted add 6 tbsp. raw cacao powder and mix well using a metal balloon whisk (wooden spoons don’t blend as well). 

Ensure the heat is low and add the Agave and mix well. Taste the mix once melted and add more sweetener if you prefer a sweeter taste. Once completely melted and blended remove from heat. Your mixture should be runny and easy to pour and can be poured or spooned into ice cube trays or even plastic tubs to make fabulous raw chocolate bars. 

Place in the freezer and leave to set for 20 mins to half an hour on in the fridge for around 2 hours.


The mix tastes delicious plain but there is always room for some creativity! Feel free to garnish with nuts, sultanas, peppermint essence, vanilla extract, orange peel or coffee.
