1 T mesquite powder (optional)

Fill a large bowl/saucepan with warm water (not boiling) and place a smaller bowl/saucepan ontop.
Place the grated cacao butter and coconut oil into to top bowl and using a whisk around ingredients until completely melted.
Add agave syrup or coconut sugar and vanilla and mix.
Gradually add the cacao powder whilst mixing thoroughly until the oil is well combined with the cacao.
Optional ideas- mix in some cacao nibs, nuts, seeds dried fruit and goji berries for extra flavours and nutrition 🙂
