Home Made Chocolate (deliciously vegan!)

This homemade vegan chocolate recipe is really simple, with only 3 ingredients, and really delicious. It’s perfect for those times when you just can’t kick a chocolate craving.

This can be made with carob or cocoa powder. Since carob contains sugar, use less sugar, as noted in the ingredients below. More sugar is needed if you use cocoa powder.

For best results, grind the unrefined sugar so it is very fine.

Ingredients

6 Tbsp coconut oil

8 Tbsp unrefined sugar (or 6 Tbsp if using carob powder). Grind the sugar to be very fine.

4 Tbsp cocoa powder (or 6 Tbsp carob powder)

Topping/Flavoring Ideas

Chopped almonds

Chopped Brazil nuts

Toasted coconut flakes

Dried cranberries

Fresh berries

Finely chopped fresh hot pepper

Finely chopped fresh mint leaves

Orange or lemon zest

Cinnamon

Preparation process

Using a saucepan, melt the coconut oil over low heat until it is clear.

Stir in the sugar and cocoa/carob powder. Mix until smooth. If you are adding a flavoring from the ideas above (mint, hot peppers or orange zest) add it now and stir well.

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, and pour in the liquid chocolate.

If you’re using toppings (nuts, coconut, cranberries, berries) sprinkle them on top.

Put the pan in the fridge to set, allowing about 20-30 minutes.

For a different twist, you can also swirl some peanut butter into the warm chocolate mixture.
