Add the gelatin, sprinkling slowly while you whisk, one tablespoon at a time.
When the gelatin has completely disappeared, add the honey and whisk.
Add the cocoa powder and whisk until completely mixed.
Add the sea salt, if you wish.

Ladle spoonfuls of the mixture onto the silicone mold. Press the mixture around with the back of the spoon so that all crevices are filled.
