1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp nutmeg

2 tbsps raw dark agave

2 tbsps macadamia butter

1/2 cup whole raw macadamias

1/3 cup raw cacao powder


Melt cacao butter in a glass bowl over boiling water. Remove, and stir in all ingredients to combine. Pour a thin layer of the chocolate mixture onto a flat, foil-lined tray and place in the freezer to set quickly. Once set, this chocolate can be broken into pieces to be stored in an airtight container in the fridge/freezer or served immediately.
