Sugar-Free Chocolate for Cookies and Candy

This is my version of sugar-free chocolate. It is easy to make yourself. Buying it online gets expensive! This takes only a few minutes to prepare.


Sugar-free chocolate Recipe:
  • 2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate (chopped)
  • 2 tbls heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar substitute +/- (powdered works best)
In a microwave safe bowl melt chocolate at 30 second intervals, stirring in between until smooth. Warm the heavy cream and add it to the chocolate with the sweetener and mix well until sweetener has dissolved, reheating for another 20-30 seconds if necessary. You can also make this on your stove top over low heat. Taste to see if you prefer more sweetener. Pour mixture into a foil lined loaf pan or cookie sheet, depending on how much you will be making. Spread the mixture out so it is about 1/2 inch thick. Place into the freezer until firm. Then cut or shave into desired sized pieces. You can double or triple this recipe to suit your needs. You can stir in nuts or chopped candy before you place into the freezer. I'm going to attempt to make chocolate chips with this recipe as well, wish me luck!
