However, the store bought versions are often full of unhealthy cane sugar. I developed this fun recipe for homemade chocolate chips to have a healthier alternative. I make a big batch and store them in my freezer so they are available any time I want to bake. I know you’ll love them as much as I do! Love, Dr. Susan
Note: Please be careful when you make them because melted chocolate is hot!
Homemade Chocolate Chips
1 cup coconut butter or coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Heat all ingredients in a small saucepan on low heat. Stir constantly until ingredients the chocolate sauce is smooth. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Pour chocolate sauce over cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet in freezer. Freeze for 2-3 hours or until chocolate is completely solid.
Remove chocolate from the freezer and break it into big chunks, and then into small chocolate chip size pieces. Store chocolate chips in freezer. They can be used just like store bought chocolate chips! Easy and delicious!
Love, Dr. Susan
