  5. Pour into moulds and refrigerate until firm. 

 Top Tips

  1. When working with a liquid sweetener it is important to mix it gently into other ingredients. Over-mixing will lead to chocolate seize and sometimes cause the cacao butter to separate from the other ingredients.
  2. Experiement with different nut butters - macadamia, almond, peanut and hazelnut are all delicious. Feel free to omit the coconut butter. I use it because I find the combination of maple, cashew and coconut gives a more 'milk' like flavour when it hits the pallet rather than one particular flavour coming through strongly.
