Raspberry Creme Filled Chocolate Candies *Vegan*

rasberrt creme


For the chocolate:
1 cup finely grated cacao butter
3/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 cup maple syrup, agave, or coconut nectar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt

For the raspberry cream:
1 (10-oz.) bag frozen organic raspberries, thawed
1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for 2-4 hours
1/2 cup pitted dates
2 tablespoons ground chia seeds
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Pinch of sea salt

1.To make the chocolate, gently melt the cacao butter in a double boiler over low heat or a dehydrator if you have one. Add the cacao powder, sweetener, vanilla, and salt. Stir thoroughly to combine, and set aside.
2.To make the raspberry cream, combine the raspberries, cashews, dates, chia seeds, lemon juice, and salt in a high-speed blender and blend until completely smooth. (At this point, you can strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve if you like, a blender does a good enough job at pulverizing the seeds that you don’t have to strain it.)
3.To assemble the candies, spoon the chocolate mixture into molds (for best results, use a shape with a good amount of depth) about 1/3 of the way full. Add a small amount of the raspberry cream to fill the mold 2/3 full. Add another spoonful of the chocolate mixture to fully fill the mold. Freeze for several hours or overnight, until completely firm.
4.The next day, when the candies are fully set, pop them out of the molds and enjoy!
5.These are best stored in the refrigerator or freezer

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut Butter Cup Pie Filling

1 1/2 cups peanut butter
2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt
Pure stevia to taste, or 1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp cocoa powder (10g)
2 tbsp pure maple syrup, agave, or honey
2 tbsp melted virgin coconut oil ( You can also top the pie with melted chocolate chips instead

Blend first 5 ingredients until smooth. Pour into your prepared pie crust and chill one hour (or more). In a small dish, stir together the remaining ingredients until a smooth sauce is formed. Spread over the chilled pie and refrigerate until chocolate hardens.

Chocolate Pie Crust ( this is gluten-free)

2 tbsp cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
1/2 cup raw cashews (you can also use almonds, walnuts, pecans, or macadamia nuts)
1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1/8 tsp salt
scant 1/2 cup pitted dates (8 small dates) (Raisins work too)
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend. Then put into an 8-in baking dish or aluminum pan. Using a piece of wax or parchment paper, press into the pan and pour desired filling on top or refrigerate until ready to use. (Sunmaid dates work really well and are softer) Also, you can probably use a blender if you do not have a food processor
