60g cacao butter, finely chopped
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbsp organic orange rind, finely grated or 4-6 drops orange essential oil
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.
