I had a minor crisis yesterday. I ran out of dark chocolate. I actually made a decision about where to go grocery shopping partly based on whether I could get a decent deal on some good dark chocolate. Seriously! I did fix the problem temporarily by purchasing a small chocolate bar I shared with my children. But, I remembered that I’d read I could make my own. Since the bar is now gone, I was determined to find the recipe. So, guess what I did last night. 🙂
First, I melted a half cup of coconut oil.
Then, I added a half cup of cocoa powder. I use raw organic cacao because of its health benefits.
Once the oil and cocoa melted, I took the sauce pan off the heat and added about a 1/4 cup of maple syrup and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
After that, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the chocolate mixture in there.
Freeze it for at least 2 hours. I left mine in there overnight.
Just like that, you’ve got chocolate in about 2 hours without having to leave the house to find the grocery store with the best deal on your favorite chocolate. 🙂
