Healthy chocolate raisins 

Movie night and chocolate raisins=match made in heaven right? Chocolate and raisins are two of my favourite things and they just go so well together and are the perfect snack when you’re settled down for a cosy night in…I do think however it is pretty hard to find good quality ones. So often the raisins are hard and shrivelled and the chocolate it sickly and cheap tasting….So let’s just make our own and while we’re at it lets make them super nutritious…why not! This is so simple and fast and totally addictive. Ok these might not look like chocolate raisins as you know them but I guarantee they taste much better and the ingredients list is natural and wholesome.

Healthy chocolate raisins  

Ingredients 

  • 1/3 cup Coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp Cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1/3 cup Raisins 

Method 

First line a 2lb loaf tin with grease proof paper.

Melt the coconut oil in a pan then take off the heat and whisk in the cacao powder and honey until it becomes a smooth chocolaty liquid.

Pour half the liquid into the loaf tin covering the bottom of it. 

Evenly sprinkle the raisins on top and then cover them with the remaining chocolate.

Chill in the freezer for an hour. Once it has set into one solid piece of chocolate you can snap it up into pieces.

Now I know these aren’t individual chocolate coated raisins…of course you could dip each raisin into the pan of chocolate, place them onto a parchment and freeze until they are solid…yawn…but I think we can all agree life is too short!

Now bung the lot into a bowl, sit down and chill out.

Remember to store in the fridge as coconut oil melts at 24c so left out it may turn back into chocolate sauce.
