With chocolate candy everywhere this month, I have been craving it pretty hard.  So, I started playing around with making homemade vegan chocolate and I’ve landed on the perfect recipe to share with you all. I love making chocolate myself because I can control the ingredients and the level of sweetness, creaminess and richness. I kept this recipe refined sugar-free and naturally sweetened it with a little maple syrup. Best of all, I found that refined sugar-free homemade vegan chocolate doesn’t seem to trigger migraines for me.  That is a huge win for this chocoholic!

I thought making homemade vegan chocolate would be difficult and time consuming but it seriously couldn’t be easier. I promise.

The only ingredients for this vegan chocolate that you need are:

  1. cocoa butter
  2. coconut oil
  3. pure maple syrup
  4. unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder
  5. salt (just a pinch)

You could also add 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract but that is entirely optional.

To prepare, all you do is melt the cacao butter and whisk in the other ingredients.  Then, pour into silicone molds and chill to harden.  That’s it!

I bought these adorable kisses and pumpkin molds since Halloween is just around the corner.  Feel free to use any type you want.  These would be adorable for Valentine’s Day and these would be fun for St. Patrick’s Day.  And these would be fun for a girl’s birthday party!
