Day Ten's winner of Raw Living's Chocolate Making Superfoods is Lisa Douglas. The winner was chosen at random, but their answers to a question 'What kitchen equipment/tool can you not go without?' was 'My lovingly well olive oil seasoned wooden chopping board taken from and old dead tree trunk found in the woods, which also doubles as a plate!' Congratulations Lisa!

Probiotic Coconut is Ombar's best seller and I can definitely see why. This beautiful chocolate bar is rich, smooth and surprisingly creamy. The coconut cream used in the recipe is a sure secret to this creaminess, it can fool any non vegan chocolate lover. The coconut flavour is really subtle yet defined enough to take you away for a little while to the dream of tropics, sunshine and palm trees.
The Probiotic Dark 72% is a dark chocolate lovers' dream! It really makes a statement and defines everything that chocolate has to offer from the richness of taste to an antioxidant punch to a magnesium supply to what ever else amazing and indulgent healthy raw chocolate ever means to you.
I especially loved the Acai and Blueberry, as you let the cacao melt on the tip of your tongue, you reach the tangy bursts of berry flavours that reminded me a little of sour sherbets I so looked forward to as a kid, but with a totally different meaning this time round.
I love that Ombar Superfood Chocolate add probiotics to their recipes, making it very unique and extra healthy for your gut (not normally associated with sweet chocolate consumption), so that while you are caught up in your naughty indulgent fantasies, you can stay assured that you are indeed doing your body a great deal of good!
Remember this chocolate cupcake recipe or this honey pear cake? Either one goes perfectly with the chocolate orange frosting recipe
12 mini cupcake/chocolate cases
For the icing:
2 Ombar Chocolate Bars (dark and/or cranberry and mandarin)
1 cup cashews, soaked 2-4 hours
1 Tbsp agave nectar
1 Tbsp lemon/orange juice
zest of 1 orange
Roll the cupcake dough into balls and press each one into the mini cases to resemble muffins
Blend all the icing ingredients on high, using a tamper or pulse, until smooth
Transfer to the mixture into a piping bag and pipe in a spiral motion inwards
Transfer to the fridge to set for 30 minutes
Store in the fridge
