230 g finely chopped coconut or vegan but
5 Tbsp maple syrup or agave nectar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder or cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch sea salt
Add 2 inches of water to a large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Then set a medium glass or ceramic mixing bowl on top, making sure it's not touching the water.
To the mixing bowl, add finely chopped cocoa butter and let melt - 2-3 minutes.
Once melted, add the maple syrup or agave nectar and use a whisk or wooden spoon to mix until fluid and thoroughly combined. Remove bowl and set on a flat surface. Also, turn off stove-top heat and set saucepan aside.
Add cacao or cocoa powder, vanilla (optional), and sea salt (optional), and whisk to combine until there are no clumps.
