It literally takes 5 minutes and the chocolates taste way better than store-bought versions.

If you want to know more about the health benefits of eating cacao, please take a look at my post: Cacao Vs Cocoa: What You Need To Know.  You will discover that unfortunately, most chocolates in the market are not real chocolate.

So go ahead and try this Mind-Blowing 3 Ingredient DIY Chocolate Recipe!

Luckily, I was able to find organic cacao powder at Whole Foods but it is also available online.  I thought of making my own chocolate and found an amazing 3 ingredient recipe. Yes, only 3 super healthy ingredients. Make your chocolate using fun molds.  I  used the egg chocolate mold and a heart chocolate mold. You can also simply use a classic chocolate bar mold.

Now this is what I call a healthy treat. Eating chocolate can bring health benefits, lots of health benefits! Make sure you choose a virgin coconut oil and raw honey or if you prefer, you can use maple syrup instead.

This Mind-Blowing 3 Ingredient DIY Chocolate recipe is so easy to make. Enjoy them plain or add some chopped nuts, raisins, shredded coconut, or some dried fruits. There are so many options and toppings if you want to vary each time you make this delicious treat. Please also see my 4 Ingredient Dark Chocolate Raspberry Hearts recipe.

Tip: Store your chocolates in the freezer and take them out a few minutes before serving. They taste amazing! With this recipe I made 30 mini chocolates.

    I have a nut and coconut allergy. Any sub for coconut oil ?


    • TheVeggieCook says:

      You could use any flavourless oil, but not olive, as it would make your chocolates taste like olive! I think they use coconut oil here because it is very healthy, but obviously if you are allergic you would be best not using it!

    Chocolate is my weakness!! This recipe looks like a must try! I’m not a huge honey fan, might try substituting agave nectar.
