Chocolate Recipe: How to Make Chocolate at Home, It’s clear to me that the more I buy chocolate, the more money I spend… and that’s ok in lots of ways as it’s keeping the economy alive, and that’s cool!

Some days I make chocolate on request, or I just make it cause I have the urge to have bulk amounts in the freezer – yes freezer!  Freezing your homemade chocolate is a great way to keep it fresher than in the fridge. Simply take what you want out and let it rest at room temp for a few minutes then… EAT!  

My chocolate making recipes have come a long way. I started long ago using cocoa powder, sweetener and coconut oil, then I changed the fat to cacao butter, cacao powder and sweetener.

Nowadays I don’t use cacao powder anymore. I use cacao paste or liquor, cocoa butter and sweetener, and boy has this made a massive difference to the texture. It’s truly next level chocolate.
