Homemade Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate

Keto Chocolate days started when I planned to make Keto Cookies with some creamy, rich taste Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips and needed and wanted to make everything from scratch. Cookies are still on their way, but in return, I have made already Keto White Chocolate Bar Recipe, which is my favorite. 

All you need is a few tiny squares together with our Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate Mix first thing in the morning and you are full for the rest of your day. I have just answered your question on How do you satisfy a sweet tooth on Keto.

Keto Chocolates for Holidays?

As Chocolates are a big part of any celebration, I can already see myself making something special with this recipe.

For Valentine’s, I am going to make it in the Heart-shaped molds as I did our Fat Bombs

And for Easter, I am going to find some nice Egg-shaped molds and make something special with probably some lightly colored flavors.

Homemade vs Store Bought Sugar-Free Chocolate

Yes, I know. You might wonder why on earth would I make my own Chocolate bars, when You can buy directly from the shop.

Do you know why?

Because following:

  1. You might not have it in the shops in your area
  2. You might not have the best choice or tastiest Chocolates
  3. Homemade is homemade
  4. Price is a big difference
  5. There are no additives in homemade chocolates
  6. They are the freshest you can imagine
  7. You know exactly what ingredients go in and can pick the best of the best. 
  8. Quick and easy to make. Even faster compare to your running to the shop and back.

The Best Sweetener for making Homemade Sugar-Free Chocolates

I have already made quite a few chocolates with various Keto Sweeteners I have at home. 

After my trials I can honestly say my findings of chocolate making:

  1. Allulose  – the best ever sweetener for Chocolate making with added smoothness.
  2. The mixture of sweeteners – the second-best choice
  3. Pure Erythritol – worst sugar sweetener for melting

If you have any other sweeteners, they are perfectly good. The most important is to make sure they melt easily and do not crystallize after cooling. 

If you have Erythritol to work with, just simply mixing it with a bit of stevia, will reduce the coolness coming from Erythritol and will lessen crystallization greatly. 

Allulose Sweetener

Allulose makes everything better.

Smooth and perfect sweetener not only for chocolate making but any desserts you are planning.
I am going to make our Sugar-Free Meringue Cookies with Allulose next as I heard the Liquid sweetener I have used, is going away.

How To Make Homemade Keto Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Bar Recipe

Kitchen Gadgets needed:

  • Double Boiler, Instant Pot or a Pot with a glass bowl to act as a double boiler
  • Silicone Chocolate Chips Mold
  • Silicone Spatula

Ingredients needed:

Sugar-Free Homemade Chocolate Bar

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUGAR-FREE CHOCOLATE BAR RECIPE 

First Step: Prepare Ingredients & Double Boiler

First, prepare all of your ingredients.

Regarding the Cocoa Butter, it is best to purchase smaller chips looking pieces than a whole block. Smaller pieces are easier to weigh and melt as well.

At the same time prepare your double boiler either the traditional way over the stove with a Bowl or a smaller pot above a big pot of boiling water.

As you see in our video, I have used an Instant Pot, which I found the best for double boiling.

Second Step: Cocoa Butter melting

Heat up your double boiler and make sure the water is simmering and the bowl is warm.

Into the dry bowl add your Cocoa Butter and let it melt fully.

Be careful, that not a single drop of water gets into the Cocoa Butter because it might not melt the butter smoothly.

Third Step: Sweetener

Once your Cocoa Butter is completely melted, add your sweetener and let that melt into the liquid fully.

Homemade Low Carb Chocolate Chips

Fourth Step: Cocoa Powder

With your Cocoa Powder, I would suggest adding it only once you take the bowl out of the double boiler.

This will make sure the Cocoa Powder will still melt, but will not cook or burn. 

You do not want your Cocoa Powder to burn even a tiny bit, because the taste will change immediately.

Zero Carb Keto Chocolate Chips

Fifth Step: Optional – Vanilla

As this step is very optional it is up to you if you would like to add a few drops of vanilla or not.

Sugar-Free Homemade Chocolate Chips

Sixth Step: Mold Pour and cool

Once everything is fully melted pour into your Silicone Chocolate Bar Molds and place it into the refrigerator.

With a dark chocolate bar, it should be ready after about 2 to 3 hours but I usually keep it always cool down overnight and only then store it wherever planned.

Tips and Tricks:

An alternative to Cocoa Butter – Coconut Oil can be a replacement, but you would have to store your chocolates in the freezer or refrigerator at all times. 

No Chocolate Mold – simply spread them onto any silicone flat form or a parchment paper

Silicone Mold – I suggest purchasing at least 2 pieces, for a much faster process

Double Boiler – Cocoa Butter can become grainier if heated up to a very high temperature. Therefore, a double boiler is always suggested. Also, be careful of water. It should not get into contact with cocoa butter, otherwise, it will not melt smoothly.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What can I replace Cocoa Butter with for Chocolate Making?

One great replacement for Cocoa Butter in chocolate making is a Coconut Oil.

There is only one little difference. 

While Cocoa Butter based Chocolate Bars stay fully hard after making. 

Coconut Oil based Chocolate Bars melt immediately once out of the refrigerator. 

This is not a problem if you are planning to store them in your refrigerator. 

How to store Sugar-Free Chocolate Bar?

Storing those Keto Chocolate Bars is pretty easy and you do have few choices. 

  1. You can pack them into the aluminum foil like real store bought Chocolates and store them in your Pantry.
  2. You can also store them in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life.
  3. Or you can freeze them for triple the shelf life as well. 

Can you freeze Sugar-Free Chocolate Bars?

Yes, you can certainly freeze those Sugar-Free Keto Chocolate Bars and that is exactly what I suggest in making with our White Chocolate Bars. They are a bit softer to the touch and therefore the freezer is the best option.

But with our Dark Chocolate Bars, Pantry, refrigerator or freezer are top choices.

My allulose did not dissolve when melting. Is it salvagable?

Zuzana

Sunday 13th of December 2020

Really? What brand did you use? Try to warm it up again in a double boiler to melt fully. You could for sure re-melt, just not above the direct heat.

Can i use extra virgin olive oil? Will it taste ok?

Zuzana

Sunday 22nd of November 2020

I would not as olive oil will not harden at the end and your chocolate will stay very soft.
