Raw Chocolate with Essential Oils

I’ve been making raw chocolate since 2012 and I’ve had a fabulous raw chocolate recipe up on the website since 2014  – its HERE  on the blog.
However since I have discovered doTerra’s essential oils I decided to have a go at using some of the oils.  I chose the doTERRA Wild Orange Oil ~ mainly because I’ve only just started out and my range is limited (although thats changing soon with a few more exciting oils coming ….)Since I wrote this post in 2015 I’ve got the full range of doTERRA Essential Oils and have various recipes on the blog now. Check under the Essential Oils tab…

I also altered the recipe a little in process.
