How to Make a Sugar-Free Chocolate Bar: Sweet Liberation Episode 6

How to Make a Sugar-Free Chocolate Bar: Video

Today’s episode of Sweet Liberation will teach you how to make a sugar-free chocolate bar. This recipe is completely added sugar-free, but packed with sweetness from the goodness of vanilla liquid stevia.

When I went sugar-free back in 2011, I thought that I would never be able to each chocolate again. I was under the impression that if I didn’t eat any form of added sugar, then chocolate was completely out of the question.

Now, over 3 years later, I’ve learned that that was completely wrong.

Not only is it possible to enjoy chocolate muffins, chocolate pudding, and chocolate spread, any sugar-freer can also indulge in chocolate bars — you just have to make them yourself. And, happily, that’s easy!

It takes 15 minutes to prepare and pop a giant sugar-free chocolate bar into your freezer to set.

Make one for yourself, and let me know how it turns out.

Question — if there was a sugar-free chocolate bar on the market (one that only contained stevia and nothing else like erythritol) would you buy it?

Serves: 1

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped cocoa butter
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar-free cocoa powder (I like Fry’s)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar-free vanilla powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar-free vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 20 drops of NuNaturals alcohol-free liquid stevia
  • 2 tablespoons of full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup of dried fruit (I like raisins or dried blueberries)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped nuts (I like walnuts or pecans)

Instructions
  1. Place two inches of water into a medium sized pot, bring the water to a boil, then turn your stove temperature down to low.
  2. Place a medium sized mixing bowl on top of the pot. This will form a double-boiler.
  3. Into the mixing bowl, melt the coconut oil and cocoa butter together.
  4. Add all other ingredients, but add the coconut milk last.
  5. Stir thoroughly.
  6. Line a loaf pan with 3 layers of plastic wrap.
  7. Cut and place a piece of parchment paper into the bottom of the load pan.
  8. Drop any type of dried fruit and nuts into the bottom of the loaf pan.
  9. Pour the melted chocolate on top, making sure that you get the chocolate into the corners, too.
  10. Pop the loaf pan into the freezer for at least 20 minutes. Over night is best.
  11. Once the chocolate bar is set, remove it from the loaf pan and break it into pieces.
  12. Store in the fridge or freezer.

    Question : I’m puzzled 😳
    I made 3x’s the chocolate bark which 2x’s it came out great . The 3rd all separated & it’s texture was gritty & oil surfaced to top.
    I just doubled the receipe though exact measurements & added 1/2 tsp. Peppermint extract and over a double boiler and then took off heat, kept stirring & once again it separated 😩.
    Do you know what I’m repeating that’s making this happen?

      Oh goodness, Sandie! I haven’t run into this problem before. So…if I understand correctly, the separation is happening when you double the recipe? To be on the safe side, perhaps it would be best to make two separate batches in two separate bowls. I’m wondering if doubling the coconut milk is causing the separation. I’ll have to do some experimenting to find out.

    Sugar free Peppermint Patty?
    Can I use the same Chocolate receipe & add Peppermint Extract?

    P.S. I’ve been sugar free for 4 weeks & no fruit as well.
    After I hit the 8 week mark I am going to add one fruit daily & before noontime .

      Wow, Sandie! Way to go! I love hearing from people who are taking control of their sugar intake. I was a level 4 (no added sugar, no fruit) for 2.5 years…but I was on medical treatment for Lyme disease, and had to stay away from sugar. Now, I’m a Level 3: no added sugar, but I do eat fruit : ) Yes…you can add any extract you want!
