Homemade Dark Chocolate

I love dark chocolate!

I’m talking about that love that you just can’t go a week without… or a day even!

When that craving hits, you don’t want to be reaching for a candy bar.

Commercial chocolate is full of ingredients that are not healthy for you, even though chocolate itself is actually pretty healthy.

Commercial chocolate has processed sugar in it… not good for stable blood sugars or for weight loss.

 

Dark chocolate is a good source of Magnesium and antioxidants. More on Magnesium here and a magnesium oil recipe. 

Coconut oil is amazing for you! It can speed up your metabolism and help increase weight loss. It can help with brain function. 

Lauric acid in coconut oil kills bacteria, fungi and viruses. Plus it taste good too. Get in my belly!

So onto the Homemade Dark Chocolate Recipe 

You will need the following:

            Coconut oil is the base of this chocolate. If it is winter, you can keep your homemade sugar free chocolate solid on your counter. I keep it in my fridge so the chocolate stays solid like a regular chocolate bar.

You can mix everything together easily and pour into molds or into a shallow glass 8×8 sized pan. I like to make mine in silicon molds now, because it is easier to release the candy from than the pans.

I like to melt my coconut oil (or at least have it at a semi-melted state) for easier mixing.
