We love our mums!CHOC Chick


Spring is in the air and I am sitting with the windows open in my sunny kitchen listening to the birds sing and finally feeling the joys of spring. There is so much to look forward to now, Mothers' Day is just around the corner (don't forget, it's next Sunday March 30th!) and next month we will be celebrating Passover, Easter and my birthday.

Wonderful times are definitely ahead and this month's CHOCtastic Newsletter is full of CHOCalicious recipes
, offers and news which I hope will bring you all more sunshine and lots of raw chocolatey goodness.

So hope you enjoy and in the words of Elbow...'Throw those curtains wide..'
Amor y chocolates,

CHOCalicious Recipes

Isn't it wonderful that we get to celebrate our mums this month? As a mum myself I am looking forward to a bit of pampering so in addition to our CHOCaliciously healthy raw chocolate recipes for Mothers' Day on our recipe pages online, we wanted to include an extra special cacao butter moisturiser recipe for total indulgence in raw cacao goodness.

Super Indulgent Cacao Butter Moisturiser/Body Butter
Our organic raw cacao butter is minimally processed and super rich in antioxidant flavanols, Vitamin E, Magnesium and Zinc (the beauty mineral), which makes it an ideal moisturiser for our skin. We love combining our cacao butter with coconut oil and it's also perfect for mixing with an essential oil such as Sweet Almond Oil (we also love adding a few drops of either evening primrose oil or rose hip oil). It's incredibly easy to make your very own luscious moisturizing cream and the perfect homemade gift for Mothers' Day!


Ingredients:
1 cup CHOC Chick raw cacao butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup sweet almond oil or other essential oil

Directions:
  • Melt the cacao butter, coconut oil and almond oil in a bowl over a pan of water on a low heat (bain marie).
  • Mix well to blend the ingredients and place to set in the freezer for 15-20 minutes (mix should set but not too hard).
  • Once the mix has set whizz up in a food processor or hand mixer until you have a lovely mousse like consistency. 
  • Place in a clean container or glass jar and smother all over!
*Stored in a cool dry place, this luxurious cream should last for at least a month.
