White Cacao Coconut Macaroons - Step by step pictures

White Cacao Coconut Macaroons

I had some Raw Cacao Butter in my pantry, so I decided to make some delicious raw candy today!

I grated the Cacao Butter into a container & put it in the dehydrator at about 115 degrees until just melted (took about 10 mins).

I only sweeten with Raw Medjool Dates, so I put a few Medjool dates, a little water (just enough to blend), a dash of salt & a splash of vanilla (not technically raw) into the vitamix & blended until smooth.

Next, with the blender on low speed, I added the melted cacao butter. Then I scraped the edges & blended on high for a few seconds to completely combine everything.

In a bowl I placed some raw finely grated coconut flakes & stirred in the sweetened cacao butter mixture.

Last, scoop spoonfuls onto waxed paper & freeze to firm up (takes 30-60 mins).
