Chocolate Covered Super-Cacao Squares

One of my favorite raw cookie snacks is my Cacao-Carob Super-Charged Cookie Balls has also been a great hit with members of two local gyms, Funktional Fitness, and 24-Hour Fitness. My husband has been selling my super-charged treats for several months. Not too long ago, someone asked if I ever considered making this cookie into an actual bar. Well, I thought about it, and it could be an idea, but the treat is pretty powerful in the size that it is. So I thought, I could also convert the ball to a slightly denser square and dip it in raw chocolate. That’s what I did! “Boy is it ever delish!!!” The chocolate coating is a very simple recipe, and tastes great in itself as a candy bar. Try it for yourself!

Ingredients:
One batch Cacao-Carob Super-Charged Cookie Balls (not rolled)
One batch raw chocolate candy coating (recipe follows)

Raw Chocolate Candy Coating.
Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup raw cacao butter (carefully melted)
1 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup raw agave nectar
1 tsp organic non-alcoholic vanilla extract
4-6 drops chocolate flavored SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia
1 T organic Grade B maple syrup
1 T raw honey

Preparation:
Carefully stir in raw cacao powder with the melted cacao butter. Add each remaining ingredient one at a time, while constantly stirring. Once everything is melted together and begins to thicken it’s ready.

Super-Cacao Squares Preparation:
Use a little more than a scoop full of the cookie mix for each square. Form little squares, or use a mold. I used a mold. The squares should be thick and dense. Place each square on wax paper which over top a tray. Leave space in between each square. Carefully pour the melted chocolate coating mix over each square, covering them thoroughly (tops and all four sides – bottoms left alone). Place in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from freezer and remove from tray. Place on serving dish, or container. Serve or store in the refrigerator covered with an air-tight lid.

Suggestions for leftover chocolate coating: I scraped the remaining chocolate and warmed it in my hands to form a large candy bar shape. I rolled it in hemp seeds so that the entire bar was covered. I then cut and broke pieces off and placed in a container to snack on later. It was delicious just like that too!
