Lucuma Maca Caramels
These pop in your mouth delectable little caramels are a mini healthy treat made with our Lucuma Powder for low GI natural caramelly sweetness, Maca Powder for sustained energy and balance and cacao butter for good healthy fats and antioxidants.
100g Power Super Foods Cacao Butter
4 tbsp Power Super foods Lucuma Powder
1 heaped tbsp Maca Powder – we used Gelatinised but raw works well too
1 tbsp maple syrup (or less if avoiding sugars)
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch good quality mineral salt
Melt cacao butter pieces gently over simmering water
Whisk in the maca powder, lucuma powder, vanilla, salt and maple syrup until mixture is smooth and glossy. Allow to cool at room temperature for about 5 minutes.
Once cooled slightly, whisk thoroughly to avoid the cacao butter separating. Transfer to a pouring jug and fill silicon moulds. We used bite sized chocolate bonbon moulds.
Place filled silicon mould onto a plate in the freezer for 1 hour or until fully set.
Remove from freezer for ten minutes then carefully release from the mould.
Consume at fridge or room temperature . . . if you can wait that long.
Lucuma Maca Caramels can be stored in an airtight container (in cooler weather) or in the fridge.
