CHOC Chick Review
I just got a starter pack from CHOC Chick and I am in heaven. This business was started by mum of two, Galia Orme, in 2008 after she realised how easy it was to make raw chocolate. Ohhh yes, raw chocolate. This stuff is all the way from South America and it tastes like heaven.
When you order your starter kit it will cost you £11.99 and it includes a low GL natural sweetener, a pamphlet of funky chocolate recipes, organic raw cacao butter, and organic raw cacao powder. It is beautifully packaged and the instructions are very clear. In fact, my husband, who really isn’t into sweet cooking, was so excited when he read the recipe for the Decadent Truffles he RACED to the shops to get all the missing ingredients.
Even a mild cooking idiot like me can’t screw this up. Well, I did a little bit. We made the decadent truffles with rum and coconut and almonds. The mistake I made was that I didn’t whisk it enough before putting it in the freezer.
After melting the chocolate butter and whisking the ingredients and plonking them in the freezer, we had to scoop out teaspoon sized blobs and roll them into balls. Then we had to roll them in the coconut and cocoa mix and put them back in the fridge for a bit. This bit was MESSY. The chocolate melts fast and our hands were covered in it.
I loved this kit. It made so much chocolate and the chocolate is so rich and tasty that you can’t eat a lot of it at once. It really does kick the bum of normal chocolate, I honestly don’t know how I am going to go back to ye olde bland chocolate after this. I don’t.
