Sugar-Free Chocolate Chunk Chips
This is a fantastic Level-4 sugar-free recipe (for information on the levels of living sugar-free, click here). That means that these delicious, homemade chocolate chips are sweetened only with the goodness of alcohol-free liquid stevia.
When I’m craving chocolate, nothing hits the spot more than a chunk of dark chocolate. But, how are you to enjoy the pleasure of dark chocolate when you live sugar-free or you’re trying to cut-back?
Just make some sugar-free, dark chocolate. And, if you want some chocolate chips for a beautiful sugar-free dessert recipe, just cut the chocolate into chocolate chunks.
It really is that easy.
I’ve gone 3 and 1/2 years without eating a chocolate chip cookie because I couldn’t find sugar-free chocolate chips. At least, I couldn’t find sugar-free chocolate chips that didn’t contain additives like erythritol or malitol.
I only like to eat natural ingredients. So, I stick to alcohol-free liquid stevia: a stevia that doesn’t contain erythritol or malitol, or any other type of additive.
Since I only use stevia, and fruit, to sweeten my recipes, I went without chocolate for a very long time — 3 and 1/2 years to be exact.
It hasn’t been until recently that I started to experiment and make my own chocolate at home. And, let me tell you….I have no idea why I waited so long!
It’s so easy to make sugar-free dark chocolate at home. In fact, it only takes 20-minutes to get it in your freezer to harden.
So, without further ado, here’s my recipe for sugar-free chocolate chunk chips. Don’t wait as long as I did to indulge in sugar-free chocolate heaven.
- 3 tablespoons of chopped cocoa butter
- 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil
- 4 tablespoons of sugar-free cocoa powder (I like Fry’s) or raw organic cocoa powder
- 1 + 1/2 teaspoon of sugar-free vanilla extract
- ⅛ teaspoon of sea salt
- 20 drops of alcohol-free liquid stevia (I like the vanilla flavoured one)
- Place a glass or metal mixing bowl on top of a medium sized pot containing simmering
- water. This will create a double boiler.
- Once the bowl is heated, turn the stove temperature down to low.
- Place all ingredients in the heated bowl. Melt all ingredients.
- Stir the ingredients all together.
- Turn the stove off.
- Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap. Do 3 layers of plastic wrap.
- Line the bottom of the plastic wrapped lined loaf pan with parchment paper. Cut a piece that fits the bottom of the loaf pan.
- Pour the melted chocolate into the lined loaf pan.
- Place loaf pan in freezer for at least 30-minutes. You want the chocolate to be solid before cutting.
- The chocolate is the best if you wait over night.
- Once chocolate is thoroughly frozen, remove from pan and cut into small chunks.
- Keep the chocolate in a zip-lock bag in the refrigerator or freezer.
- This recipe will make 1 cup of sugar-free chocolate chips.
