Recipe Teaser: Raw Chocolate

Did you know that most chocolates contain anywhere between 20 and 56 grams of sugar per 100 grams of chocolate? Even the rich dark varieties are high in the white stuff. Why not try this rich dark homemade variety, unsweetened, or with your choice of unprocessed sweeteners.
