Homemade Chocolate + Fruit & Nut Bark
Homemade chocolate is as easy as it is to make as it is to eat. Chocolate is often associated with guilt, but trust us, once you see the ingredients in our homemade chocolate recipe, you’ll feel anything but! The key to making chocolate that really is good for you comes down to the ingredients you put into it. If you don’t already know, there’s a HUGE difference between Cacao powder and Cocoa powder. Our homemade chocolate is SO easy and quick to make and thanks to our Cacao powder, it really is good for you. With only 4 ingredients and 3 steps, there’s no reason not to make it, plus its SUGAR FREE! You’re probably wondering how our chocolate could possible be sugar free. In place of refined sugar or artificial sweeteners, we used our Yacon syrup. Our Yacon Syrup is a prebiotic superfood sweetener that has no significant impact on blood sugar levels. It can be used to replace refined sugar, agave nectar and even honey in almost any recipe! As for our homemade chocolate, you can use it in so many different recipes, or enjoy it on its own. We used ours to make Fruit & Nut Bark. We can’t wait for you to try it out!

Your homemade chocolate is done! You can use it in any recipe calling for chocolate, freeze it for a homemade chocolate bar or simply enjoy as is right out of the bowl. The options are endless! We used ours to make Fruit & Nut Bark! Steps 4-8 will show you how we created ours:
* Optional dry add-ins can be incorporated at the same time as the cacao powder
**You’ll want to complete steps 2 & 3 quickly as possible to prevent the mixture from hardening prematurely.
*** Soaking the fruit will prevent them from becoming too hard when the bark is frozen, however this step is completely optional and not at all necessary if you’re short on time!
