Chocolate Chunks

These chocolate chunks are going to be your new favorite addition to baked goods or any other dessert that needs a little extra chocolate!

With only 5 ingredients, you can have your own homemade chocolate chips or chunks (I did not have a chocolate chip mold, so I just made the chunks!) This chocolate is fudgy, thick and sweet.

What is amazing about these chocolate chips is that they are grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free and 100% guilt free!

My favorite way to use these chocolate chunks is in chocolate chip cookies! These will also make a fabulous hot cocoa! All you need to do is add them to your favorite milk over a stove top, heat and enjoy! I am sure you will find other ways to use this chocolate too!

An important step to making these chocolate chunks (if you do not have a chocolate chip mold) is to let the frozen chocolate sit out of the freezer for 15 minutes before slicing into squares. This way the chocolate will be solid enough but it won’t break off into tiny particles!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup + 4 tbsp coconut sugar
1 cup + 2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp maple syrup
pinch of salt

Directions: Heat up a medium sized stove top cooking pot over medium heat. Add the coconut oil and coconut sugar. Whisk until the coconut sugar has mostly dissolved. Then add the cacao powder and maple syrup. Whisk until all ingredients are combined. Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Next, pour the chocolate over the lined pan. Spread out the chocolate until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Place in the freezer until frozen (about 1-2 hours). Remove the chocolate from the freezer. Leave out at room temperature for about 15 minutes, then begin slicing into small squares. Store chunks in the freezer until ready to use.
