Recipe: Melt In Your Mouth Raw Honey, Dark Chocolate & Coconut Bites

Dark Chocolate CoconutDark Chocolate Honey Bites

1 cup Jacobite East Lothian honey (stockists – The Mousehole Deli in Portobello)
1 cup Lucy Bee extra virgin raw organic coconut oil  
1 cup cocoa powder (try extra brute red brown from Cocoa Barry)
1 tsp of pure vanilla extract (I used Bulletproof Madagascar upgraded vanilla)
1/2 tsp sea salt (ad more for that sweet salted taste)
optional: nuts (salted nuts even better!)

 

Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until well blended. Line a large loaf pan with wax/parchment paper and spread mixture about 2cm thick. Wrap up in parchment paper and refrigerate for several hours (overnight) Cut into small squares and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Tip: Don’t melt the coconut oil or it will sit on the top of the cocoa honey mixture. Lightly soften. It’s ok if some of the oil sets on the top. Less honey will give a firmer texture.

New Stockist: Melville Castle, Midlothian

melville estate
I’m pleased to announce that Melville Castle Estate are a new stockist of Jacobite Apiaries honey. This year they are stocking my East Lothian honey produced by my bees at Garvald.

Towards the end of next summer 2016 you’l be able to buy my Melville Estate honey from the gift shop in the castle, as my bees are now permanently settled on the Melville Estate. Within a three mile radius of the castle is a huge variety of trees, shrubs and flowers which should produce a beautiful tasting runny honey

Drop in for afternoon tea or a coffee and pick up a jar.
