Marshmallow Chocolate Cups

Do your kids love Reese’s cups? We’ve got the perfect healthy alternative to make their easter egg hunt a blast. Find the full recipe HERE.


  • Basic Raw Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup cacao butter
  • 60ml coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
  • 8 drops liquid stevia
  • Marshmallow Filling
  • 1 tablespoon gelatin powder
  • 150ml coconut milk, full-fat
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 drops liquid stevia


  1. For the Basic Raw Chocolate, place all of the ingredients and a pinch of sea salt into a saucepan and simmer over a low heat. Melt until smooth. Remove from the heat and pour into silicone moulds or mini cupcake cases until 1/3 full. Refrigerate and allow to set for 30 minutes.
  2. To make the Marshmallow Filling, dissolve the gelatin in 1/4 cup of cold water and let it sit for 5 minutes to become gel-like. Heat the coconut milk, vanilla, stevia and a pinch of sea salt in a saucepan over a medium heat until almost boiling. Remove from the heat and stir in the gelatin until well-combined.
  3. Remove the Basic Raw Chocolate from the fridge and pour 1 teaspoon of Marshmallow Filling into each mould. Return to the fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. Pour the remaining Basic Raw Chocolate on top of the Marshmallow Filling and place the moulds back into the fridge for 1 hour or until set. 

Healthy Chocolate Scrolls

These scrolls are the perfect treat to accompany your Hot Cross Buns on the table! Find the full recipe HERE.



  • For the dough:
  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour (or a combination of all-purpose and whole wheat flour)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • ¼ cup rice malt syrup
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup lukewarm milk (or plant-based milk)
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • For the filling:
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • For the glaze:
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoons rice malt syrup
  • 2 tablespoons milk (or plant-based milk)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, instant yeast, rice malt syrup, and salt. Gradually add the lukewarm milk and melted butter to the dry ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.
  2. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  3. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for approximately 1 hour, or until it doubles in size.
  4. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Once the dough has risen, punch it down to release any air bubbles. Roll out the dough on a floured surface into a rectangle about ¼ inch thick.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, rice malt syrup, and softened butter to form a smooth paste for the filling.
  6. Spread the filling evenly over the rolled-out dough, leaving a small border around the edges. Starting from one of the longer sides, tightly roll up the dough into a log shape.
  7. Using a sharp knife, slice the log into approximately 1-inch thick scrolls.
  8. Place the scrolls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each scroll.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the scrolls are golden brown and cooked through.
  10. While the scrolls are baking, prepare the glaze by whisking together the cocoa powder, rice malt syrup, and milk until smooth.
  11. Once the scrolls are out of the oven, drizzle the glaze over the warm scrolls.
  12. Allow the scrolls to cool slightly before serving.

These brownies are so easy to make and satisfy all of those easter cravings for chocolate! Find the full recipe HERE.


  • Coconut oil, butter or ghee, for greasing
  • 1 1⁄2 cups almond meal
  • 1⁄2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 80g dark (85–90% cocoa) chocolate, chopped into small, even chunks

Cover and cook on low for 2 1⁄2 hours or 1 1⁄2 hours on high, or until the outside of the mixture is firm and the centre is no longer liquid. Remove the lid and continue cooking for a further 30 minutes or until the centre cooks through.
  5. Once cooked, switch off the slow cooker and leave the cooked mixture to rest for 10–15 minutes. Carefully remove from the slow cooker by grabbing the edges of the baking paper and gently lifting out. Allow to cool completely before slicing. Store the brownies on the baking paper in a sealed container for 3–4 days or freeze for up to 4 months.
