I made a batch of Easter Chocolate. Lots of candy to choose from in the stores but it's so easy to make up a healthier version of a chocolate Easter treat. Chocolate can be a delicious sugar free option. Especially with great products like Stevia, Vanilla Stevia is what I used today in this chocolate.
Melt some good unsweetened chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. I use a Ball Canning jar to melt and store my chocolate in so I don't waste whatever isn't used each time. It stores well in the refrigerator for the next recipe. I can easily add more chocolate to the jar when it gets low and can melt the chocolate right in the jar.
I usually put the whole jar in a bowl of hot water and set it on the warming burner on the stove top. You can easily do this same process in a microwave but the bowl of water does speed things up and can keep the melted chocolate warm until you're ready for it.
Today, I mixed in about 1 tsp. of Vanilla Stevia (NuNaturals)
to sweeten the cocoa. I've also used a little butter sometimes to give it a gloss.
This homemade Chocolate is a healthy and cheaper option than store bought and you can adjust flavors and ingredients to family and friends health concerns or allergies. Give it a try. It's easy!
