The important thing in this recipe is the cacao butter as it allows the chocolate to be solid at room temperature. I like to make a batch and just keep it in the freezer and nibble on it if and when I want a piece because while it is better than recipes that only use coconut oils (for texture), it will still get your hands a little dirty :)…

However, I would love to hear your modifications so please comment below with additions you tried. Happy healthy baking!…
