Organic Homemade Chocolate

21 July 2014 | By

606739059_91143dbd32_oChocolate doesn’t have to be a guilty pleasure when it’s made from all-natural, organic ingredients. But, more importantly, it doesn’t have to be expensive (organic chocolates can be quite pricey at the store) because you can make your own!

Here’s what you’ll need:

-organic extra virgin coconut oil
-organic unsweetened cacao powder
-organic raw honey / maple syrup / stevia
-sea salt (optional)

Take one tablespoon of coconut oil and one tablespoon of cacao powder (or use more, as long as it’s a 1:1 ratio) and mix them in a bowl. Then, add your sweetener of choice–the amount depends on how sweet you want your chocolate to be–into the mixture, as well as a sprinkling of sea salt if you wish to give it that delicious, sweet-salty taste.

Mix well and place in the freezer for at least 20 minutes.
