Here’s a gorgeous recipe for sugar free chocolate from Lee Holmes from Supercharged Food. Lee’s cook book is a favourite on my shelf at home – the recipe for salt & vinegar activated nuts deserves a special mention, but I digress from sweet to savoury.

White Chocolate

1/4 cup organic coconut butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 TBS vanilla essence
10-12 drops liquid stevia or 1 tsp powdered or to taste
2 TBS shaved cacao butter

Method:
Melt cacao butter and coconut butter and oil in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water then add additional ingredients
Place in a container or mould of your choice and freeze for 30mins. Break into bite sized pieces.

Dark Chocolate Ingredients

¼ cup raw organic cacao powder
¼ cup organic coconut butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 TBS vanilla essence
10-12 drops liquid stevia or 1 tsp powdered or to taste
2 TBS shaved cacao butter

Method:
Melt cacao powder and butter, coconut butter/oil in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water then add additional ingredients
Place in a container or mould of your choice and freeze for 30mins. Break into bite sized pieces

You can make other versions to suit your taste by adding orange or peppermint essence, crushed raw almonds, walnuts or cashews.

I am making the dark chocolate today for my lover in celebration of Valentine’s Day!
