  • You’ll begin making your chocolate by melting the cacao butter fully. You can either do this over a double boiler on the stovetop, or by heating in the microwave in a heat-safe bowl for 30-second increments until the cacao butter is melted.
  • Once the cacao butter is fully melted, whisk in the maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour the gummy bears into the homemade chocolate and mix to combine. Use a slotted spoon to remove the gummy bears, letting any excess chocolate drip off, and place them on a cooling rack with parchment paper lined under it.
  • Chill the gummy bears in the fridge for 10 minutes, then dip the gummy bears into the chocolate a second time, removing them in the same way.
  • Chill the gummy bears in the fridge for 10 more minutes, then enjoy!
