Homemade Chocolate Bar3

I almost always have these homemade chocolate bars in my freezer. It’s great to have around if I want a little square of dark chocolate, but don’t want a store-bought one loaded with processed sugar and preservatives! This chocolate bar can also make a great gift. You can wrap it in wax paper and give it away to friends, just try to keep it cool because if it’s too hot it can melt!

Homemade Chocolate Bars:

1/4 cup coconut oil (where to buy coconut oil)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup powdered palm sugar

1. To powder the palm sugar, blend in a coffee grinder. It will make a finer powdered sugar version of the coarse palm sugar. It is important to powder the sugar in this recipe. If it’s too coarse it won’t distribute evenly.
2. In a double boiler melt coconut oil under medium heat. Add cocoa powder and palm sugar to the double boiler and mix well with the coconut oil. It should result in a smooth chocolate sauce like consistency.

4. It won’t take very long for the bar to freeze maybe 15-30 minutes. However, if you do want there to be lines on the bar so it breaks into squares like in the picture, take the chocolate out of the freezer a little less than halfway through, so it is slightly hard, but not fully hardened. Then, take a knife and cut the lines in the bar. If you forget to take the chocolate out of the freezer before it completely hardens (Like me! Oops!) you can heat a knife over fire or under very hot water and cut lines in the chocolate.

5. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
