Cacao Nips 20g
Manuka Honey/Syrup 1 large tbsp
Sunflower Seeds 1 tbsp
Step 1. Measure out required amounts of Butter and Powder. Grate the butter in a glass bowl.
Melt the butter over heat in a glass bowl. I used a steamer to keep the bowl away from contact with the water. You could use a bain marie if you have one. Do not let the butter boil.
Step 3. Add the powder to the melted butter and stir. Place the nibs and nuts into a sandwich bag and beat until partially crushed. Add them to the chocolate mix and stir.
Step 4. Remove from heat and spoon into desired molds. I used ice cube trays.
Step 5. Place the trays into a fridge for 1 hour to set or 20min in a freezer. Remove and gobble them down or give them to a loved one.
