Once the cacao butter has melted, turn heat off and add the raw cacao powder (add the 2Tbs first and add a little more cacao powder if the mix it too runny). Whisk in the Agave syrup (you can add a bit more if you prefer a sweeter taste) and mix well. The consistency should be smooth and quite runny. 2. Spoon 2-3 teaspoons of the mix into mini baking cups (each about halfway full) and place in the freezer to set for 15-20 mins. 3.
