Before you make this sauce ensure that all your bowls and utensils are very clean and do not have any traces of water.
Using a small, clean mixing bowl add in cacao powder and liquid coconut oil, stir well with a fork or small whisk to achieve a smooth sauce.
Add in rice syrup and stir well to combine, if the sauce looks split, add a little more coconut oil. Stir through vanilla beans and almond butter and salt, if desired. Taste and adjust ingredients if needed, if you prefer a sweeter sauce add a little more rice syrup.
Store in airtight container until ready to use.
