  • Author: Cristina Curp
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 5
  • Total Time: 15 minutes


Easy and healthy homemade chocolate



  • 1/2 cup grated cacao butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (optional, you may use 1 cup cacao butter)
  • 1/2 packed cup cacao powder


  • Sweetener (I used 1/8 tsp monk fruit, see notes for more options)
  • Flake Salt
  • Nuts/Seeds
  • Coffee Grinds
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Vanilla Bean Scrapping


  1. Heat a glass bowl over a small sauce pot. Add in the cacao butter (and coconut oil), melt until it looks like ghee. Liquid, golden and translucent.
  2. Add in the cacao powder and mix until smooth.
  3. Remove the bowl from the heat and keep whisking until the chocoalte mix begins to cool and looks very glassy.
  4. Add in the sweetener of choice and keep stirring. If you are adding in the vanilla add it in now.
  5. Pour your chocolate into the molds, it will make 2 bars.
  6. Now you can add more goodies, some salt, whatever you wish.
  7. Then set them in the fridge or the freezer to harden. Make sure they’re on a flat surface.

Recipe Notes:

  • You can use 1/4 cup confectioner’s Swerve, 20 drops stevia. I used the monk sweetener and was really happy with the flavor, it also used VERY LITTLE.
  • If you are making this chocolate for baking (like in cookies) use 100% cacao butter and skip the coconut oil. This method will temper the chocolate but because of the coconut oil, it will melt quickly. For a room temperature stable chocolate use only cacao butter (1 cup grated)
