Chocolate Truffles and Marzipan DYI. Sweet Seduction! Dark Chocolate Caramel Truffle with Puffed Amaranth, Chili Chocolate, Chunky Nut Bar and Marzipan Dark Chocolate 💚 Learn how to create your own and healthier version of chocolate with me! I will give you easy tips and tools how to create scrumptious chocolate and you wont want any other chocolate anymore! Most of the chocolate that you can find in supermarkets are made with fat that are hydrogenated that means that liquid vegetable oil is turned into solid fat which are detrimental to your health. Besides of that it contains refined sugar. This means that the sugar cane juice is processed and heated to crystalize, and is then filtered and bleached with bone char, which results in sugar’s pristine white colour. So many products that seem to be vegan at first, could be not, if it does contain sugar, it might be sugar that was bleached with bone char. To avoid that just do it yourself with really easy recipes and tools that I can give you! Have your diet under control and get in touch for a free consultation or simply reach out if you have any questions. I am very happy to show and teach you how to create scrumptious sweets and also meals that will leave you satisfied and happy! 😀

plant-based, chocolate, filled

Marzipan is very typical in Germany and usually made with egg yolk and lots of sugar. Doing it yourself you only need two ingredients to make your own healthy version and soooo delicious Marzipan. I use almond meal and maple sirup combine it well together either with a food processor or simply with a spoon or your hand and add in a pinch of himalayan salt tadaaa! Now what you can do is place in a mold or shape it into a ball and leave in the fridge. It is delicious as it is but you can enjoy it with chocolate too! All you need for the chocolate is cacao butter or coconut oil combine it with raw cocoa powder, carob powder, maple sirup and a pinch of salt. In a mold pour in the chocolate and add the hand shaped marzipan. Place in the freezer for 30min and enjoy! 🙂

filled plant-based chocolate, caramel

Caramel Chocolate with puffed Amaranth is probably one of my favourite chocolate that I often prepare for clients and friends. You can use the same ingredients like mentioned above but before you pour in the chocolate, first add some puffed amaranth or puffed quinoa would also work. Now add the chocolate and on top gently add some coconut nectar. Chill for 30min and enjoy! 🙂 The chocolate will last up to 3 weeks in the fridge. For more inspiration and recipes
