I love chocolate chips. LOVE them. But the chocolate chips that we buy (in bulk) have some weird stuff in them, so I decided to try to make my own. After searching around, I found this recipe.
I am not so sure I would call it a success, but it is not a total failure either. Sure, I can't take the chocolate chips out of the freezer for more than a few minutes before they melt, but they sure taste amazing. Seriously.
To make these, I needed to buy coconut oil. I needed some more oil, so instead of my regular stuff, I thought, "I'll try something new," and went out in search of coconut oil. Well, let me tell you- coconut oil is not a liquid. It is a solid white mass. It looks like this.
Weird. I know.
But mighty tasty (and I don't even like coconut!)
Homemade Chocolate Chips
from Oh She Glows
- 2 Tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 4 T honey (you could use any liquid sweetener)
- 2 teaspoon vanilla
- Mix together ingredients. (I microwaved it for a few seconds to melt the oil and make it easier to stir.)
- Roll mixture flat onto a lined cookie sheet or cutting board and freeze for 30-45 minutes until solid.
- Cut into pieces and store in fridge or freezer in a airtight container.
