Make Chocolate

Celebrate love:

Love yourself so fully, that from this place of fullness, you shine that love back outwards to illuminate the lives of all you encounter, in turn.

Share love with homemade chocolate. Why not go wild and make a big batch for the whole office? Your whole street? Town? Everyone needs some love.

Making chocolate is easy. By controlling the amount of sugar and other ingredients, you also control the health benefits received.

Here's 2 different recipes for making your own chocolate:
- make it from scratch with "Bare Chocolate"
- rebuild from another bar with "Chocolate Truffles"

Have fun, get creative, and share with everyone!
Love, Jiling
