Chocolate Kratom Blocks With Fruit and Nut

Get an excellent recipe for creating chocolate blocks or bricks with kratom in them, as well as fruits and nuts for added fibre (to prevent constipation) and nutrition.

One of the best ways of taking kratom is to mix it with chocolate, as truly good, powerful chocolate can mask the taste of kratom almost entirely.  While you can actually create baked goods, puddings, and even drinks flavoured with chocolate for this purpose, this particular recipe focuses on the creation of straight-up chocolate blocks instead: you can break off pieces of them and enjoy them as desserts, provided you follow the instructions properly and use a strong-enough chocolate for your base.  The kratom should vanish entirely from the flavour profile, and the effects should set in after about 40-50 minutes post-consumption.  The duration is dependent on the amount of kratom used as well as the leaf’s quality.

This is much like melting down chocolate for any other baking project that involves the ingredient.  Start by getting some premium dark chocolate or any type that has 70%-and-up of cacao in it.  The higher the chocolate content in your blocks, the better the results usually taste, especially as more chocolate tends to mean more flavour.

Now, put the chocolate in a double boiler.  If you do not have a double boiler, you can make do by putting an aptly-sized metal bowl atop a pot of water.  The bowl should be large enough to be held up by the pot’s rim yet not so large that it dwarfs it.  The bowl should also wide enough that its bottom does not touch the water, even when the water is already boiling.  Chocolate can burn, so you want to melt it using only the steam rising from the water.  If you really have nothing to hand, you can also work with a microwave, but use the lowest heat setting all the time and work in intervals of 10-15 seconds, depending on how small your chocolate pieces are.  And remember: do not use a metal bowl in the microwave!

The amount of chocolate you use is dependent on the amount of kratom you use.  Estimate it by following the rule of using ½ to 1 square centimetre of chocolate per gram of kratom that you intend to use.  Use only the finest ground kratom for this, to make sure it becomes unnoticeable when you eat it.  Once the chocolate is melted, take it off the heat (or out of the microwave) and add your preferred nuts to it.  Hazelnuts and almonds are good options.  Add a few raisins to it too, then mix it well.

While the mixture is still liquid, spoon or pour it onto some wax or parchment paper.  Place those in the fridge and wait for them to cool down and solidify.
