We had a voucher to try Bioglan Raw Cacao powder from the Tesco Orchard Program, the first thing we tried with it, was mixing it with just water as directed on the back of the packaging. It was disgusting! Would probably make good hot chocolate with milk, but we both hated it just mixed with water.

We decided we’d give it a go in the Cacao Bites recipe also on the back of the packaging, which included a mixture of nuts, dates and coconut oil, these were delicious! Although, a little bit too more-ish, so they didn’t last long!
