Valentine’s Day is almost here, which always calls for something sweet to eat! If you remember my last recipe post, I’m on a total chocolate/ cocoa kick! I’m using a lot of raw cocoa to satisfy my sweet tooth. Chocolate is a staple for the holiday of love, but I can’t tolerate the sugar and dairy in the standard chocolate bar, so I decided to make my own simple creation. This has minimal allergens, making it the perfect treat for people who are on a gut healing protocol. Take a look at this gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free chocolate dessert!
Homemade Chocolate Bars – 2 Ingredients
This recipe really couldn’t be simpler. Simply melt the coconut oil, mix in the cocoa powder and pour onto a baking sheet or into a chocolate mold. I don’t have a mold, so I placed a sheet of foil on a baking sheet and gave it a quick spray with coconut oil before pouring out the chocolate. Depending on how much bitterness you tolerate, you may want to add a few drops of a sweetener like Stevia to your bars too! The darker the chocolate the better for me, so I opted for no sweetener.
After pouring the chocolate mix on the tray, I quickly added toppings before the chocolate melted (totally optional), but I highly recommend. I sprinkled on some sea salt and coconut flakes! Simply freeze or place them in the fridge until hardened.
I love the idea of giving this as a gift for the holiday! Who doesn’t love receiving homemade baked goods? After your chocolate hardens, break the pieces with your hands or by bending the foil sheet. Pair together a few pieces of your choice and tie them up with a little gold ribbon! Then gently place them in a gift bag of your choice and store in the fridge until you’re ready to serve or gift!
