Indulge in Bliss: Caramel Raw Chocolate Recipe

Hello, fellow chocolate enthusiasts! Today, I'm thrilled to share a divine treat that's not only delicious but also a breeze to make – Caramel Raw Chocolate. This exquisite recipe, inspired by the culinary wonders of Cotta, combines the rich flavors of raw cacao with the luscious sweetness of caramel. It's the perfect choice for those moments when you crave something sweet and indulgent.


For the Caramel Filling:

  • 1/2 cup soft, pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • A pinch of sea salt

For the Raw Chocolate Coating:

  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • A pinch of sea salt


1. Prepare the Caramel Filling:

- In a food processor, combine the soft dates, almond butter, melted coconut oil, pure maple syrup, and a pinch of sea salt. Blend until you achieve a smooth, caramel-like consistency. You may need to scrape down the sides of the processor bowl a few times to ensure everything is well combined.

2. Shape the Caramel Filling:

- Scoop out the caramel mixture and roll it into small, bite-sized balls. Place these balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then, pop them in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes to firm up.

3. Prepare the Raw Chocolate Coating:

- In a bowl, combine the raw cacao powder, melted coconut oil, pure maple syrup, and a pinch of sea salt. Stir until the mixture is smooth and glossy.

4. Coat the Caramel Balls:

- Take the caramel balls out of the freezer. Using a fork or toothpick, dip each ball into the raw chocolate coating, ensuring it's evenly coated. Allow any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl.

5. Let Them Set:

- Place the chocolate-coated caramel balls back onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Return them to the freezer for another 20-30 minutes or until the chocolate shell hardens.

6. Serve and Savor:

- Once your Caramel Raw Chocolates are set, they're ready to be devoured! Serve them as a delightful dessert or share them with friends and family.

Pro Tips:

- You can customize your Caramel Raw Chocolates by adding crushed nuts, shredded coconut, or a sprinkle of sea salt to the coating.

- Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.

These Caramel Raw Chocolates are a celebration of simplicity and indulgence. The sweet, gooey caramel center contrasts beautifully with the rich, raw chocolate shell. Plus, they're a healthier alternative to traditional candies, so you can enjoy them guilt-free. Treat yourself to these bite-sized wonders and share the joy with loved ones. Happy indulging! 🍫😍
