Raw Chocolate/Carob Covered Raisins

1/2 c. cacao powder
2 T. raw agave or raw honey
1 heaping T. mesquite powder (or lucuma powder) – both are optional
2 c. raisins – I used Thompson’s giant raisins
pinch vanilla powder or 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Melt the cacao butter or coconut oil in your dehydrator, or a double boiler, or over a bowl of hot water.
Mix in the other ingredients by hand. Pour in raisins, 1/2 c. at a time. Use a slotted spoon to transfer raisins
to a wax paper-coated cookie sheet. Freeze for 10 minutes.

Vanilla Fudge – Covered Cherries – White Chocolate
on youtube -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA3aX3CFhJg
Over a double boiler, melt:
2 C. cacao butter
3/4 c. raw honey
2 c. cashew or macadamia nut butter
Mix by hand. Or put in a personal blender with
4 T. mesquite or lucuma powder
2 pinches vanilla powder or extract.
4 T. goji berries, if desired
4 pinches orange peel
6 T. cacao nibs.
Take a fudge brownie pan, or ice cube trays and oil with olive oil. Olive oil makes the best coating to be able to get the fudge out without sticking. Put a cherry in each ice cube section, or stir them into the batter.
Freeze for 10 or more minutes! Delicious!
