Best Homemade Chocolate Bars

This recipe is adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie.  I was looking for another way to make homemade chocolate chips.  I’m not satisfied with my current recipe.  This recipe is so yummy that it will never last to make chocolate chips!  Instead, it makes amazing dark chocolate bars, and can be used in hot milk to make hot chocolate.  I love it….did I say that already?!!  Gotta love chocolate!  So I continue to search for something more frugal for a mass making of chocolate chips (I make a lot of cookies and chocolate chip pancakes), but in them meantime, I will be snacking on this.

Best Homemade Chocolate Bars

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
4 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil (melted)
1/4 cup agave
optional: extracts, cocoa nibs, or other add-ins

I’ve tried this recipe with less cocoa and the agave flavor comes through strong, making it seem too sweet (yes, I said it).  The amount of cocoa in this recipe really balances the sweetness.

Combine coconut oil with agave. Stir, then add cocoa powder. Stir until it gets thick. Pour into any flat container lined with waxed paper.  Put in the fridge or freezer until solid.  I keep mine in the fridge for the few minutes that it remains uneaten.

    • You can buy it at walmart next to the oils. Mine carries organic and non-organic brands.
      I’m really glad I found this particular recipe. It really helps the sweet craving when I can just go and grab a bite every now and then.

  6. Nice easy version to making your own chocolate! I am allergic to soy so have had to make my own for a few years now. I use a similar method, which uses cocoa butter, cocoa powder, coconut oil and a little honey. I’ll have to try this one too. One cannot have too much chocolate! :)
