    METHOD
    To prepare the base:

    1. Add the cacao butter to the top of your double broiler, let it melt and set aside.
    2. Add the cacao paste to the top of the double broiler, melt and set aside. 
    3. Tip the melted cacao butter into the cacao paste, add the remaining base ingredients and mix well to incorporate. 
    4. Combine the chocolate base with any of the flavour combos.* 
    5. Pour into your moulds or spread onto a lined tray and place in the freezer to set.

    *I divided the base into three parts. I sprinkled the fruit and nut combo over one, mixed the peppermint combo into the second part, and sprinkled the sesame combo on top of the third part.
