DIY Raw Vegan Chocolate With Markus Rothkranz

Looking for an easy, healthy way to satisfy your chocolate cravings? In the video below, Markus Rothkranz gives you just that – a delicious, ridiculously easy vegan chocolate recipe that anyone can make in a matter of minutes. The final product is chocolate so rich, you’ll think it was made by a professional.

To make your chocolate, you’ll need the following ingredients:
1 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup carob powder (non roasted)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup cashew butter
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla (without alcohol)

Once you have all of the ingredients together, use a sifter if you have one lying around to get rid of some of the lumps in the cacao and carob powders. After that, throw all remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix away! Just a few minutes to combine all of the ingredients, and boom! Instant vegan chocolate. For a dip or coating for fruit (strawberries go wonderfully with this), use the chocolate when it is freshly mixed. For a more traditional treat, portion the chocolate out into baking cups or molds and freeze for 45 minutes. Once frozen, enjoy to your hearts content!

For an added element of flavor, couple your chocolate with marzipan! To make the marzipan, you will only need two ingredients:
1 1/2 cups ground almonds
3 tablespoons maple syrup

Just as before, combine all ingredients, either by hand or via a food processor – and, voila! To impress your friends and family, pour a little chocolate into a paper or silicon baking cup and top with a dollop of marzipan. Freeze for 45 minutes and eat away!
