  • 3 tablespoons cranberry & seed mix (we used Good4U Nutrition Orange-infused mix)

Get making!

  1. First make the chocolate: Melt the cacao butter in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove from the heat then whisk in the cacao powder, 1 tbsp at a time until you have a slightly thick chocolate sauce.
  2. Whisk in the date nectar, vanilla and cinnamon.
  3. Next pour about 1 teaspoon of the chocolate to cover the base of 12 silicone cupcake cases.
  4. Mix together all of your ‘rocky road’ ingredients so you have a sticky mixture. Place a spoonful of the mixture on top of the chocolate in each case.
  5. Now pour over the remaining chocolate sauce to cover each. Sprinkle with the puffed millet and freeze-dried raspberries then place in the fridge for at least 1 hour to set.
  6. When you’re ready to enjoy, simply remove from the fridge and pop out the case!
