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.

•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

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.
