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 option. This 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.
