Qi Choccie + Tea (Recipes)

The London Fog tea and Raw Qi Choccies - what a delightful pair...

QI is the newest kid on the SuperFeast apothecary block and my, how we love this delicious blend. In our Western culture, sweet foods can sometimes overwhelm our bodies systems, most notably our spleens. One of our tricks is to combine Qi herbs with sweet foods to help support the spleen. This combo is a winning one and we love it as an arvo pick me up. But hey, it's never too late to have chocolate, right? So maybe you can try yours in the morning ;P

Ingredients (makes 8-10 choccies)

Macadamia Nut Butter

  • 1 cup macadamia nut butter (buy or make by grinding 1 cup macadamia nuts in a food processor)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs QI blend

Method

Macadamia Nut Butter

  1. Stir vanilla extract, QI blend, maple syrup and salt into the nut butter
Chocolate
  1. In a glass bowl over a pot of hot water melt the cacao butter, maple syrup and ground vanilla, stir in cacao powder and mix until all combined - don’t overheat!
  2. As soon as the mix is MOSTLY melted remove from heat and keep stirring until it’s all smooth. If you have a thermometer, keep the mix around 50 degrees C.
  3. Using a silicone mould, pour a small amount of the chocolate on the bottom of the mould and freeze for about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from freezer. Dollop about a teaspoon of nut butter mixture on top of each chocolate mould.
  5. Cover with the remaining chocolate and freeze or refrigerate before serving (sprinkle with some extra sea salt flakes for a yummy contrast or a powdering of cacao).
