Chocolate with fresh pollen and honey

1 cup raw cacao butter      
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/8 cup carob powder
1/8 cup cacao
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup raw honey 

Gently melt all ingredients in a stainless steel bowl over a pot of warm water. Do not let it get over 40 degrees or you will kill all the amazing enzymes in the honey.

Once smoothly combined pour mixture into molds or onto baking paper. Allow to cool for 10 minutes then sprinkle bee pollen over the chocolate. 

Place in fridge or freezer depending on how impatient you are to eat it.
