Sea Salt Probiotic Candies
Makes 40 to 50

- ½ cup (125 mL) uncooked agave, barley malt extract, or brown rice syrup

- 2 tablespoons sizzling water
- 2 tablespoons hazelnut butter (or extra cashew butter)
- 1 tablespoon probiotic powder

- Soften the cacao butter in a bain-marie. All this implies is putting the damaged shards of butter in a shallow bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Be sure that the bowl is a minimum of 10 cm above the simmering water. Take away from the warmth and let the cacao butter naturally soften over the recent water for five minutes.
- Blitz the remaining elements (besides the uncooked cacao powder for dusting) in a meals processor. Hold the motor operating, and slowly add the melted cacao butter in a gradual stream. The addition of ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper is rumored to make your tongue dance and your pulse quicken. Simply saying.
- Refrigerate in the identical bowl, with the blade intact, for about 1 to three hours. If the combination appears too exhausting otherwise you’ve forgotten about it within the fridge, blitz it once more to loosen it up. (That’s why it’s helpful to go away the blade in.)
