The first step is to sift the cacao/cocoa powder. This helps break up any small chunks and allows for a smooth chocolate bar consistency.
Next, add cashew butter, melted coconut oil, honey, and a pinch of sea salt.
The mixture is stirred until well combined and then adjusted as needed to achieve a slightly tacky, fudge-like texture. Adding more dry ingredients (cacao/cocoa powder) helps if it is too thin, and adding more liquid (honey or oil) helps if it is too thick.
To form into bars, place the dough onto one side of a piece of parchment paper. Fold the paper over and use a rolling pin to flatten to a ~1/4-1/2 inch thickness. Then remove the parchment paper and form into a square or rectangle. And finally, it goes into the freezer to harden (or not, if you can’t wait that long)!
