Do you love chocolate? Yeah, me too. But I also don’t love buying chocolate and seeing sugar as the first listed ingredient.
Apart from that, it always feels great to make something completely from scratch. Have you ever tried making your own chocolate? If not, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!
The ingredients for homemade chocolate can be a little difficult to find, but if you don’t find them in stores near you, you can always get them from Amazon. I left links to the ingredients I used at the bottom of this post!
50g cacao butter (link below)
50g cacao paste (link below)
1 tablespoon cacao powder (optional-link below)
2 teaspoons maple syrup (or to taste)
1 handful freeze dried strawberries (link below)
1 handful sugar free cornflakes
Place the cacao butter and paste in a bowl and melt the mix in a water bath.
Add the cacao powder and mix well until it’s distributed evenly, and no clumps remain.
Add the maple syrup, and mix well again.
Get either a silicone mould or a tray lined with parchment paper, and place the strawberries and cornflakes on it.
Pour the chocolate mix over your strawberries and cornflakes, and place the tray or silicone mould in the fridge for at least two hours to allow the chocolate to harden.
Store your chocolate bark in the fridge if you don’t eat it right away, and enjoy!
