Raw chocolate mousse blocks

Fancy something sweet, but don't want the extra calories? Try some of Mark Morales' healthy raw chocolate mousse blocks, made with natural ingredients, no refined sugar or preservatives. All the flavour with none of the guilt. 

Everybody loves chocolate, and research is showing that a small quantity of the stuff is actually good for you. However, the chocolate bars available at most supermarkets are packed with added sugars, preservatives and stabilisers taking away any of the health benefits raw chocolate may contain. Why not try making your own using natural ingredients and no added sugar for a healthy treat!
