Spicy Chocolate Maca Bark

Wondering how to use Maca powder in a recipe? Here's an awesome recipe using it with chocolate! 

Fall in love with the stellar flavor combination of maca’s sweet earthy flavor & the dark chocolate’s classic richness. A hint of cayenne spice adds a delicious intrigue & will warm you up while you enjoy this addictive treat.

Ingredients:
•½ tsp ground raw, organic Cinnamon Powder
•¼ tsp ground raw, organic Cayenne pepper powder
•⅔ Cup raw, organic Cacao Paste
•2 Tbsp raw, organic Maca powder
•4 Tbsp raw, organic Bali Coconut Palm Sugar

Directions:
Dice cacao paste into smaller pieces so it's easier to melt. Melt your cacao paste at low temperatures in whatever method you prefer (You can use a chocolate grinder, your dehydratror, or stove top using a double boiler.) Once melted, mix in the remaining ingredients until combined, & allow to gently melt for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove chocolate mixture from the pot and spread evenly into a pan about  ¼ inch thick. Place pan in the freezer for 30 minutes or until chocolate is completely hard. Snap into pieces and serve.

NOTE: Chocolate will remain hard at a “cool” room temperature, and will soften when warm. For best results, keep refrigerated until ready to enjoy.
