Serves 4

Ingredients

Method

  1. Mix cocoa powder and some soya milk (about 3 tbsp) to make it into a smooth paste. Set aside.
  2. Mix kuzu and 1 tbsp cold water well. Set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining soya milk in a pan with a pinch of salt and agar flakes without stirring until bubbles start. Then simmer for 3-4 minutes or until all the agar flakes dissolve, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the cocoa paste (1) into a pan and stir constantly for a further 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add malt syrup, nut butter and stir constantly. When it is mixed, add the kuzu paste (2) and stir constantly.
  6. When the liquid becomes a bit thicker, remove from the heat and transfer to a flat dish. Leave it to cool for 1-2 hours.
  7. Once set, blend in a food processor until smooth and creamy, adding more malt syrup if necessary.
  8. Serve topped with crushed, roasted hazelnuts.
