Why we love this recipe with our cacao

Our ceremonial cacao is 100% cacao. That means, unlike cocoa powder, it isn't over processed & defatted. It's full of nutrients and the cacao butter is still present, which turns this chocolate hazelnut spread into an even creamier, more delicious treat. Using these simple ingredients alongside our cacao makes for a healthy & decadent substitute for store bought spreads that are full of sugars & unhealthy fats.
