Food hampers make excellent gifts, especially at Christmas. Whether you put together your own or buy a ready-made one, the inclusion of chocolate is a must!

Win Rawr Chocolate with Fairtrade Foundation. Support Fairtrade, Save Chocolate!
Nov 4th, 2015 by Rawr

 

fair-trade win rawr chocolate

 

This week, Fairtrade Foundation is raising awareness about the importance of supporting Fairtrade cocoa. Experts predict that within five years there could be a worldwide shortage of cocoa, as not enough young farmers are taking up cocoa farming — yikes! One of the many reasons we’re so glad Rawr bars carry the FAIRTRADE Mark.

Fairtrade Foundation have produced a wonderful little film and information page, which you can see here.

Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the page for a chance to win a Rawr Chocolate bundle, today only. Good luck!

Favourite Vegan Ice Cream Recipes
Jul 7th, 2015 by Rawr

Vegan ice cream + rawr chocolate

 

We’re big fans of dairy-free ice cream. It’s so simple to make at home, and we’re getting through buckets of it now the summer’s in full swing!

We use a home ice cream machine (this one), which is super easy to use. A machine’s well worth the investment, but if you don’t have one you can also make ice cream by hand. Just pour the blended mixture into a tub and put it in the freezer, then give it a stir every half hour or so until it’s fully set. You won’t get as soft ice cream as you will if you use a machine, but it’ll still taste good!

Here are our favourite recipes. Feel free to tweak quantities and experiment with your own ingredient additions. As long as you keep the liquid to sweetener ratio about the same, it’s hard to go wrong.

 

Base

Blend:

780 ml coconut milk

320 ml coconut cream

1/2 cup coconut palm sugar or honey

 

Vanilla

Base + 1 tsp vanilla powder

 

Chocolate Chip

Base + 1/2 cup raw cacao powder + 1/2 tsp vanilla

After the ice cream comes out of the machine and is still soft (or, if making by hand, when it’s started to set in the freezer but isn’t fully solid), chop 2 Rawr Chocolate bars or a handful of goji chocolate chunks into small pieces and stir in. Then put in the freezer to set.

 

Chocolate Peanut Butter

Base + 1/2 cup cacao powder + 3 or 4 heaped tbsp nut butter

 

For toppings, we love our raw chocolate goji chunks, fresh fruit, cacao nibs, or a dollop of raw nut butter.

Happy ice cream making!

Recipes using Rawr Chocolate
May 31st, 2015 by Rawr

We love recipes made with our chocolate, and recently we’ve been blessed with lots from food and health bloggers! Many are raw and vegan, and easy to make at home on a rainy day.

All you need to get started is some chocolate (our goji chocolate chunks are a discounted way to buy raw chocolate to melt at home, find them here), and a quick trip to the kitchen cupboard or the shops.

If you come up with any recipes of your own using our chocolate, let us know as we’d love to share!

Baked Oatmeal — Moni’s Meals

We’ve been feeling the love for Instagram lately, and Moni’s Meals is one account we love. Moni used our chocolate as a topping for this scrumptious oatmeal (recipe here). If you haven’t tried chocolate and porridge before, they’re perfect partners.

 

Raw Goji Brownie Bars — Rawberry Fields

Rawberry Fields rawr brownie bar

Rawberry Fields is one of favourite raw blogs. Rachel puts such care into every one of her posts, and her photos are beautiful. One of her particular skills is painting the inside of glass smoothie jars with raw chocolate — you have to see it to believe it! Check out one of my favourites here.

Rachel reviewed Rawr Chocolate here, and created a truly scrumptious brownie recipe, which you can find here.

New Rawr Look! Now Vegan & Fairtrade, with Recycled Cocoa Shell Wrappers
May 30th, 2015 by Rawr

Bars Now Vegan and Fairtrade Registered!

We’re delighted that Rawr Chocolate bars are now Vegan Society and Fairtrade registered.

Our chocolate’s always been vegan, so we’re pleased to make it official and carry the Trademark.

It’s also very important to us that our ingredients are sourced ethically — and we know it’s important to lots of you too — so we’re proud to now carry the Fairtrade Mark.

 

New Rawr Chocolate Designs

While adding the new logos to our wrappers, we’ve taken the opportunity to revamp our designs. Take a look at our colourful new labels and let us know what you think!

View the whole range online here.

Bars-Together-Smaller

 

And that’s not all….

Wrappers Now Made with Recycled Cocoa Shell

When we discovered a new type of paper made with recycled cocoa shell, we knew it was perfect for Rawr. Every bar is now wrapped with luxuriously thick paper which is 100% recycled and is made from 10% cocoa shell. We’re delighted to help reuse cocoa shell waste, and squeeze that little bit more cacao into Rawr!

Newly packaged bars are shipping in the UK now, and making their way to European stockists soon.

New Design Coming Tomorrow!
May 29th, 2015 by Kendra at Rawr

Since Rawr started in 2008, our bars have been through numerous design incarnations. We can’t wait to officially share the latest tomorrow, as well as some other exciting news!
