Welcome all! Papa G here Today I present a different and unique way to make your own chocolate
Using only three ingredients, this very easy recipe can be used as chocolate chips in your favorite cookie or brownie recipe or enjoy it on its own it's a delicious chocolate candy It also has a fraction of a net carbohydrates as some of the premade low carbohydrate chocolate found in stores Let me show you what I mean Now I love to use Lilly's chocolate when I bake, but it can be a bit pricey and when we look at the macros, you'll see that 14 grams, which is just about a half an ounce, has a total of eight total carbohydrates; and when we subtract the fiber and the sugar alcohols we end up with three grams of net carbohydrates while low, it's more than three and a half times the net carbohydrates in this recipe
As I said, we'll only need three ingredients coconut oil, unsweetened cocoa powder, and a liquid sugar substitute You'll also need a silicon mould for shaping your chocolate
Any size and shape mold will work I'm using one here to make some chocolate chips I find using a pourable microwave safe measuring cup to be very helpful when making this recipe Put a half a cup of coconut oil into the measuring cup and microwave for about 20 to 40 seconds, or until the oil is melted Add a liquid sugar substitute equal to 3/4 of a cup of regular sugar
This amount of sweetener will give you a sweetness level on par with semi-sweet chocolate Add a half a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder and mix well to stir I like to run the spoon against the sides to help break up any clumping This recipe makes just a little less than 5 ounces or a total of 135 grams of chocolate Once the cocoa powder has fully been incorporated into the coconut oil, test for sweetness and add more if you desire a sweeter chocolate
Pour the liquid chocolate into the mold of your choosing and place in the freezer for 30 minutes to help set quicker When the chocolate hardens removed from the mold and place in a container for storage in the refrigerator There you have it folks! My very simple, three ingredient low carbohydrate homemade chocolate A recipe that's easy to make and can be used for any recipe that calls for semi-sweet chocolate – or simply enjoy it on its own I hope you enjoyed this video
