5 Minute Homemade Chocolate – ‘No food processor’ version (Paleo, AIP, Vegan, Keto)

Easy Homemade Paleo and AIP ChocolateHappy New Year dearies!  The past two weeks have been surreal – everything happening in ‘slow motion’ ….so, so relaxing! A mini reunion with my college girl friends in the charming town of New Orleans followed by another relaxing jaunt in Miami and Key West with the family was exactly what I needed to recharge and reboot.  The weather was perfect – sunny and mid 70’s. Yes! That’s what I needed. (Actually that’s what I need 12 months of the year, LOL!) Anyways, had my fill of seafood too and nothing like it when it is fresh from the sea! Scallops, Craw fish, Lobster, Crab and all kinds of fish! Sorry, didn’t mean to make you jealous 🙂

Paleo and AIP Chocolate Candy (Keto) Anyways, you may be wondering why I am again back with yet another chocolate recipe? Those of you who haven’t seen my recent posts,  I had recently posted ‘easy homemade chocolate’  which is really, really delicious. I mean it – that one is indeed a delicious chocolate recipe.  But this one just happens to be even more delicious and is just PERFECT… It will blow your mind away!  Plus it is super easy to make too! Yes, no food processor for this one. Just 4 main ingredients!  I developed this recipe just one day before I was going away with my girl friends and so I didn’t have time to post it. I took some for my friends and they absolutely LOVED it! They tried to convince me that I should market this 🙂  I don’t know about that…maybe in the future 🙂 But in the meantime, I wanted to share this recipe with my followers.  This is my ‘New Year’ gift to you!

And I want to offer this gift to you with a message. And the message is this – ‘ Yes it is indeed possible to eat healthy and still eat delicious food including desserts! ‘ Seriously, if you look at all the lovely looking and delicious recipes that all my fellow Paleo and AIP bloggers post (Check out Phoenix Helix’s Weekly Recipe Roundtable), you will be convinced.  So this year, make a promise to yourself – to treat your body well and to nourish it with only good, clean ingredients. No white sugar, No white flour and No processed foods. I can assure you that you will not regret your decision. And when you crave chocolate, just make this recipe – It takes only 5 mins 🙂 I used these super cute silicone candy molds that I ordered from amazon that are just perfect for making this chocolate. For a Keto version, replace the raw honey with a Keto approved sweetener. You can use the conversion guide for keto sweeteners available here to see how much of the sweetener you should be adding.

I also made a video for you so you can see how easy it really is and hopefully you will be tempted to make these!

  1. I’ve done two batches and neither turned out. My carob powder is all clumped together. I tried to add more coconut oil the second time, and it’s still all clumped together. So frustrating and a lot of money down the drain, literally.

    • Hi Nora which carob powder brand did you use? Because I have made these with both carob as well as cocoa and both came out well! Did you try putting them in the molds and letting them set in the fridge? Because one time when I used carob, there was slight separation of the coconut oil but I still poured the mixture into the molds and the chocolates set well. There was a slight whitish layer of coconut oil on top but the chocolates still tasted great. I am sorry about your experience.

  2. I’m definitely going to try this Indu, as I’m really trying to cut back on refined sugar completely. I used to have those molds, but when I downsized, unfortunately I got rid of them. But I have an ice cube mini molds and I could use that. So tell me, can I use cocoa powder? Where do you get the raw cacao powder? Great job on the video. 🙂

    • Hi Loretta yes you can try using the ice cube molds. Are they silicone? Yes you can use cocoa powder too. raw cacao powder has a better taste since it is really good quality cocoa. I get mine from amazon. I think my recipe has the link for the brand I use. Good luck and lmk how you make out!

    • I noticed these were easy to make in small cupcake papers too, they just look like Reese’s. Haha. I used a mixture of dark and regular cocoa powder. Super delicious!

      • So glad you like it! And thanks for sharing your experience with the cup cake liners! Do you mind rating the recipe? You will see a rating button below the comment box. Thanks so much!
