55g Soaked Dried Buckwheat (pre-soaked 15 mins, pre-dehydrated until dry (8-10 hrs at 118F), or purchase plain raw activated buckwheat. 
65g 3/4 Cup Coconut Flakes
74g 1/2 Cup Raiz The Bar Authentic Drinking Chocolate (or your fav drinking chocolate)
95g Cacao Butter, chopped, melted

Directions: 

Crust

In a medium bowl hand mix all ingredients together until well incorporated. 

In a square pan aprox. 14cm x 14cm lined with Saran wrap (Cling wrap) for easy removal, press crust mixture firmly onto bottom. Use your pointer finger knuckles to press down outside edges. Set aside.

Filling:

In a Vitamix, blend all filling ingredients, except the chocolate until well incorporated and smooth.

Pour out aprox. 2 Cups White Peppermint onto crust leaving the rest of the white peppermint chocolate in the blender.

Into the blender, add melted dark chocolate and blend until well incorporated and smooth. 

Using a spoon, or chef squirt bottle with the end cut off make approx. five chocolate puddles underneath the white peppermint chocolate and on top. 

Using a chopstick, make swirls, but do not over swirl so that the two colours have a nice definition.

Set up in the frezer for a couple hours before removing and slicing into 16 squares, or desired shape. 

Storage Options: In the freezer for up to two months. When ready to serve sit out for aprox. 10-15 mins before serving. This is mouthwatering delicious and always a hit at every party, especially during this time of the year! Enjoy! 🙏🏻💫🎄 xxo
