Homemade Chocolate

It’s a 50-calorie fix for your chocolate cravings.

Tiffany Rudd shares her secret for making homemade chocolate!

Healthy Homemade Chocolate
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil melted
1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup
4-6 drops wild orange or peppermint essential oil (optional)
Coarsely ground sea salt (optional)

Whisk together melted coconut oil and maple syrup. I just put both in a glass measuring cup and microwave them for 20-30 seconds, and then mix them in my Kitchenaid. Add the cocoa powder and whisk until it is completely combined and nice and thick. Add essential oils if you want to change the flavor a bit. It doesn’t take much, so be sure to test the flavor as you go.

When it is all mixed, just poor the chocolate into molds. Or, if you don’t own any candy molds (like me!) just poor it into a quart size ziplock bag. Squish out any air, zip it tightly closed and then just lay it flat in the refrigerator or freezer until solid. Then just remove the chocolate from the baggie and cut into 16 squares. I love mine sprinkled with a little sea salt. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
