Preparation Time: 10 minutes
- 2 tablespoons coconut cream concentrate

- Stevia or honey to desired taste
Melt down the coconut cream concentrate until completely smooth and melted.* Slowly add cocoa powder until thoroughly mixed in and smooth.
Add in your sweetener, starting with 1 teaspoon for a rich taste and increasing to desired sweetness. Add your choice of other ingredients (see below) into this base and mix until evenly distributed.
Pour mixture into a mold, or any suitable bowl of choice and stick it in the fridge or freezer to re-harden.
Notes: Sunflower seed lecithin really adds a much smoother texture and is worth adding 1/2 teaspoon to recipe.
