  • 1/2 cup Tribal Moon Cacao
  • ½ cup Tribal Moon Cacao melted to drizzle
  • 1/2 cup room temperature unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 3/4 cup plain flour or all-purpose flour (extra flour for dusting)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add the golden syrup and egg yolk; beat again until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cacao, baking soda, ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl. Beat until dough comes together and then knead until smooth. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow it to rest.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line two cookie sheets or oven trays with baking paper or parchment paper. Lightly flour your work surface and roll out the dough using a rolling pin to 1/8-inch thickness. 
  4. Drizzle the melted Tribal Moon Cacao over the cookies. 😊😊😊


Depending on what type of recipe you are creating, we always try and prepare cacao in the easiest possible way with the greatest amount of care. So here are a few helpful hints on how to do that.

  • If you need the cacao in more of a powder-type form for your recipe, just blitz larger chunks of Tribal Moon Cacao in a Nutri-Bullet, Thermomix, or Food Processor for 10 seconds. Then it is all ready to go without needing to chop or grate it. Easy. 😊
  • If you need to turn your cacao into more of a liquid type of consistency, simply pour boiling water into a pot with the cacao and stir over heat until it melts. NEVER LEAVE THE CACAO as it begins to get hot. If it starts to steam, that is as hot as you want to get. Try to NEVER RAISE the temperature of the cacao above 87 Degrees Celsius as it will lose some of its medicinal qualities.
  • Have fun
