Create a bain-marie using two saucepans place the larger pan beneath the smaller pan adding enough water to hold the smaller pan with out the water moving up the sides and spilling over. This method surrounds food with a very gentle heat, warming delicate dishes such as making chocolate as we are doing here.
Start by adding the coconut oil, once melted add the cacao and the rest of the ingredients taking your time as you mix each ingredient in, finally add the maple syrup, guava or honey to taste.
