Ingredients

Chocolate

  • 1 cup cocoa butter organic
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder raw
  • 1/2 cup cup cocoa powder natural, not alkalized
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 drops organic rose essential oil

Filling

  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 1 TBSP maqui powder
  • 1/2 TBSP beet powder
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1 TBSP rose powder
  • 1 drop organic rose essential oil

Instructions

Make the filling

  • Measure the filling ingredients into a small bowl that can hold 2 cups. 
  • Pack coconut butter into a 1/4 cup. 
  • Add to the bowl along with all the powders. 
  • Use a small spatula/scraper to mix this well.  
  • Add the maple syrup and the 1 drop of rose oil.  
  • Mix thoroughly until a thick, smooth paste forms.

Prepare the chocolate


  • Place a small saucepan on low and heat up the cocoa butter, about 3-4 minutes.  




  • Remove from heat and add the remaining ingredients for the chocolate.
    Use a spatula to mix and scrape down the sides.

Make the bars

  • Take a small baking sheet pan or Pyrex dish and line with parchment paper. It shouldn't be bigger than 8 X 8 inches or equivalent.
    Larger pans will make very thin bars, a smaller container will make a thicker bar.  
  • Pour half of the chocolate into a uniform layer, using a spatula to make smooth.
  • Place in the fridge or freezer until this layer is hard.
  • Once hard, use a smooth spatula to spread the maqui rose filling in the center of the chocolate leaving a 1/2 border of chocolate. 
  • Make it a smooth layer. Pour the remaining chocolate on top and use the spatula to smooth.
  • Sprinkle with rose petals!

Special Tips!

  • Coconut Butter - You can make your own by using a food processor to break down dried coconut strips.



  • Maqui Powder - You can also try acai powder, pitaya powder, pomegranate powder, raspberry powder!
  • Rose Essential Oil - Get organic! Use only 1 drop if you want a more subtle rose flavor and no more than 3 drops.
  • Rose Petal Powder - Take organic dried rose petals and using a clean coffee grinder for spices, process them until a powder forms. Make sure your grinder is clean (no chilies etc). Or you can be a badass and grind your own powder in a mortar and with a pestle.
