If you’re one of the lucky people to live in a part of the world where gluten-free chocolates exist then that’s awesome for you! However, we are not. So, fueled by serious chocolate cravings I played around with recipes. Some weren’t so great. But practice makes perfect, so now I have this amazing homemade chocolate recipe to share with you!

Just so you know, after a few months of serious cravings and withdrawal symptoms, we discovered that Snickers bars are gluten-free depending on where they are produced! So just check the label and you can go wild with those!

What Ingredients Are Used To Make Chocolate?

So, I have no idea what goes into store-bought chocolate, I just know one ingredient is cocoa. However, this delicious gluten-free chocolate is made with only three ingredients, to make the plain chocolate all you need is cocoa, powdered sugar, and coconut oil.

Is Homemade Chocolate Healthy?

As far as the cocoa and coconut oil go, yes, and you can also add healthy options like nuts or dried fruit. However, like anything that contains sugar, gluten-free or not, homemade chocolate is not the healthiest snack but it does taste amazing. It’s also healthier than many of the chocolate bars you buy at a store. So, all things considered, everything in moderation is the best!

How Long Can You Keep Homemade Chocolate?

Like most homemade things it doesn’t keep as long as store-bought chocolates. You can keep it in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week but it’s so divine I doubt you’ll have it that long!

How To Make Homemade Gluten-Free Chocolate

Step 1 – So, first place a double boiler on the stovetop and melt the coconut oil, and if you didn’t know, a double boiler is just a heat-safe bowl resting on the sides of a pot that has boiling water in.

Step 2 – Next add the cocoa powder and powdered sugar and stir while on the heat for 5 – 10 minutes. Then turn off the heat and let the chocolate cool above the hot water for five minutes.

Step 3 – Pour the chocolate into silicone molds, pop them in the freezer, and leave them to set for at least an hour. However, if you can’t wait you can take them out after just 10 minutes but they will be meltier.
