    Homemade Dark Chocolate


    Ingredients
    1/2 cup coconut oil
    1/4 1/2 cup organic cocoa powder
    1/4 cup coconut milk
    dash of Celtic Sea Salt
    1 teaspoon organic vanilla
    Stevia to taste

    Directions
    1. Heat the oil on med/high to thin it out; then add cocoa, coconut milk, vanilla, salt. It will thicken when you add the coconut milk so keep it warm while you add stevia a little bit at a time. (If you are using the steviva concentrated powder, just use a little dusting at a time and keep tasting it. If you add too much it will be more bitter. You can always add a little more coconut milk if it gets too sweet.)
    2. Once you are satisfied with the taste, take it off the heat and pour it into molds or spread on a small plate and freeze. Even if left at room temp if will harden because of the coconut oil.
    3. You can add other ingredients to the chocolate before letting it set coconut, almonds, walnuts, etc.

    Enjoy!

      mmm thank you so much! I can't wait to get home tonight to make this. What if you put NO Stevia in it, is it too bitter?

            I used sugar instead of stevia but not much, sugar produces a pretty similar insulin response to sugar so I stick with the real stuff, just don't use very much of it. It's cooling in the fridge as I type this and I can't wait to try it! I can already tell this is the start of a chocolate making kick that may just involve the addition of bacon to one of my chocolate experiments. I've had it before and would love to be able to add that to my new found paleo skill set in the kitchen.

              Personally have not tried it yet, copy and pasted from another site... was looking for something else and this looked good...
              I am sure you want a little something swwet in it co co powder is bitter.. maybe a chopped date or a 1/2 tsp little honey or maple syrup if you
              use a liquid like syrup or honey you prob. want to cut back on the coconut milk or it may not set.... you can taste as you go before you pour it on a cookie sheet...

                I make mine similar: 1 whole bar of bakers chocolate, 1/2 stick of butter, 1/2 cup coconut oil. Melt together and pour into molds--no sweetner. Only for the bravest of chocolate lovers.

                  If you mash up super ripe black berries, they jive pretty well as a sweetener.
