This was our Monday night treat. Because every family should have a designated treat night, don’t you think? A little too dark for the kids (I’d say it’s about 70% dark chocolate-type-flavour) Amelia made her siblings cute little cupcakes. Quite healthy ones too, just not appropriate for our Lent challenge 🙂
Made with approximately 40grams of cacao butter (for more details, see this post) 25grams of cocoa powder and about 80grams of date paste: I counteracted the dark flavour by sprinkling liberally with cranberries, raisins, freeze dried strawberry powder, flaked almonds, in short- whatever I could rustle up. Aye- even some salty pistachios.
Cacao butter will “seize up” in contact with even a drop of water, so when you add date paste instead of honey, it goes grainy, but we didn’t mind. It is a lot softer, so it needs to be kept in the freezer. It was delicious.
