Raw White Chocolate

The pumpkin is carved, my costume is ironed, and the candy is ready for passing out to kids…

…And now the tastiest raw white chocolate recipe has just been created.  Finally!  I am ready for Halloween.

These Raw White Chocolate Bones give a whole new meaning to having a freezer full of bones. What? Is it just me who has actually been able to use this expression?

    Hi Cara just converted your recipe for using in the Thermomix… About to post photos etc on my fb page
    However ! Mine has not come out as white as yours ? I did use Maple syrup as there is a lot of discussion about the use of Agave…(so I don’t have any) but I have read a few raw white choc recipes and they use maple syrup also….
    How did you get yours so white !
    Yours is the only one Ive seen so white 🙂

    • Hi Caroline! I want to so borrow your Thermomix–I’m jealous 🙂 Honestly, I didn’t do anything differently than what the recipe says I did. I think what made it so white could be the fact the agave I used is more light in color? That is the only thing I can think of. Plus, I did 2 coatings of chocolate and maybe that had something to do with it? I wish I had a clearer answer but that is all I gots 🙂 xoxox!

        Hi Cara, they are just the best .. If you check out my page on fb that I posted above I have now posted photos of the completed chocolate.
        However.. is raw white chocolate softer than raw dark chocolate (or chocolate in general ?)
        When you used 1/2 cup of melted cacao was that half a cup of cacao and then melted or an amount of cacao and then that equalled half a cup ?
        lol if you get what I mean
        I used 90g of hard cacao which was a smidge under half a cup but pretty much near it

    Does this white chocolate coating dry hard? I’d like to make peppermint bark this year and am looking for vegan white chocolate recipes that will harden (and stay that way at room temp).

    November 14, 2012
    • You know, it gets a little melty still. I am trying to figure it out myself and find something that you can make into bark as well. To be continued…

    Came across your recipe while looking for ways to make vegan white chocolate. Loved your recipe but I was just wondering how long this would keep since its got cashews in there. Also, I was wondering if the white chocolate would be safe for dogs (cos I’ve got 2 in the house and we occasionally treat them to whatever we’re having)?

    November 5, 2012
    • Hi Adeline!
      Not sure about the safe for dogs question. My gut answer is no since it’s made with cacao butter (which is the oil of cacao) and I’m thinking maybe that is still bad for dogs? Or is chocolate harmful to dogs for a different reason than just due to the cacao? No clue though so don’t trust my opinion 🙂 ha. Let me know what you find out! I’m curious now… xo

  8. For Halloween, I’m going to be the one sitting on the couch watching The Great Pumpkin while scarfing down a bowl of popcorn with hot sauce. If I were closer to you, I’d be the one sneaking your white chocolate. yum yum yum.

    I wonder if this would work with coconut oil instead of cacao butter… seems a bit cheaper to me…
    That would be worth a try!

    October 30, 2012
    • It might Laura, however, the cacao is what gives it that rich chocolate-y flavor that you will miss out on if you use just coconut oil. Give it a try and let me know your findings! xo

  12. I really need some cacao butter. I have yet to play with it.
    Costume…haven’t dressed up since third grade. Goes with my dislike for your favorite holiday 😉

  14. Yay! This looks yumazing. I’m thinking of all sorts of uses for this!!!! Thanks.

  15. I remember trying to create a healthier white chocolate with cocoa butter…but I learned the hard way white chocolate is a confection not to be recreated with cocoa butter (which is a very rich dark chocolate taste.This recipe looks good in its own right, I am eager to try with the raw cashews, super creative!

    October 30, 2012
  16. This is so cool! I’m always looking for interesting vegan recipes that ingredients that are easy to find. I can’t believe that it’s primarily cashews and cacao butter that make this consistency.

    October 30, 2012
    • Crazy huh? This is why I am just so loving raw desserts. Not only do they taste so freaking amazing but it’s so simple to make and easy to find. Hope you like it!

      October 30, 2012
  17. I have never liked white chocolate, but yours looks delicious with cashews. I can see really liking this coating. It isn’t made with chemicals and crap like most white chocolate. Your bones look delish!

    October 30, 2012
