Make your own CHOCOLATE…what!!! I love chocolate but I know that white processed sugar is the devil. So delightfully delicious and addictive (we refer to it as “the other white powder”). I can let it go except with chocolate and chocolate chips. You can buy the bars but WOAH expensive. So I have been working on making my own. This is a great recipe that everyone testing it loves (and there have been some real flops). It is also so versatile and easy. Enjoy your antioxidants!
1/4 c EACH coconut oil, as a solid, not pre-melted and cocoa butter, as a solid, not pre-melted (I promise it’s worth it to invest in the cocoa butter)
1/2 c cocoa powder (raw like Holy Kakow is best or the highest quality brand, I have used the Trader Joes though and YUM)
3 Tbl of maple syrup or any other natural sweetener. Play with this amount and adjust the sweetness to your liking. This amount was I would say equivalent to a 70% cocoa content bar.
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1) Melt the oils.
2) Add the remaining ingredients and spread on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
3) Let it set in the fridge. Store in an airtight container in fridge. Lasts for weeks.
