Homemade Keto Chocolate Bark – From Scratch!

Ingredients

100 g raw cocoa butter
50 g cocoa powder, dutch process
50 g sweetener, powdered (confectioners')
1 tsp vanilla extract
optional: almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, dried berries, sea salt, chili
For all of you chocolate lovers following the ketogenic diet, I have the best recipe ever - make your own chocolate bark from scratch!

Instructions

1.Cut cocoa butter into small pieces so it can melt easily. You can also grate it, if it is easier.
2.Use a microwave-safe bowl, put the butter into it and microwave it on medium-low heat for about 2 minutes (give it another minute if necessary)
3.Add cocoa powder, powdered sweetener and vanilla extract and mix until everything is well incorporated. Check if the chocolate is sweet enough (if you are making a sweet version).
4.Use a mold or a plate or an ice cube tray (or, in my case a 8x4 baking pan) and pour the chocolate mixture into it. If you use a pan or so, line it with parchment paper to get it out easily). At this point, you can add optional ingredients - chili, sea salt, nuts, dried berries etc.
5.Place the chocolate into the freezer for 30 minutes. Alternatively, let it cool and harden up in the fridge for about 60 minutes.

If you are following the (strict) ketogenic diet, and you have a sweet tooth, I assume you struggle with finding chocolate that is ACTUALLY keto-friendly. I know I have that issue all the time. The chocolate available in the majority of stores is quite often sweetened with maltitol (more about sugar alcohols here) which is not the best optionThis chocolate bark is sugar-free, keto, low-carb, dairy-free, gluten-free, and probably much cheaper than a store-bought one.

The only ingredient that you probably don’t have in your pantry is cocoa butter. However, you can buy some high-quality raw cocoa butter online (long live Amazon). Additionally, for a quality chocolate bark, you will need high-quality cocoa powder. I recommend you go for a Dutch-processed (alkalized) cocoa powder. Dutch-processed cocoa has a smoother, more mellow flavor. It is washed with a potassium carbonate solution that neutralizes cocoa’s acidity, and it has a noticeably darker hue. Dutch process cocoa powder is not mandatory, but it does add to the taste.

If you prefer, you can make an unsweetened bark or add a sweetener of choice. The level of sweetness can vary depending on the sweetener, so adjust it to your taste.

You can use half the amount of cocoa butter and in place of the other half use coconut oil. It will have a slight coconutty aftertaste, but that’s not too bad if you ask me. Another option is butter, but in that case, your chocolate will not be dairy-free.
