Then add in your 8 blocks of chocolate. Melt it all down until smooth.

Add in your powdered xylitol..(but only 1 tbsp at at time) a min or so in between, so it dissolves completely..constantly stir.

This is a low Glycemic sugar. Information about “Xylitol” here: Glycemic Index of Sweeteners & Ingredients & Resources

I grind mine down with a coffee grinder. This one is from Walmart.

Once your 5 tbsps of xyliol have been added, stir in your 2-3 tbsps of honey. Add one, dissolve..then add the 2nd.. dissolve, then add the 3rd.

(remember to constantly stir)

Then pour your liquid chocolate into a container/measuring cup etc of your choosing and pour into silicone chocolate chip molds. 

I use “VAN YULAYS” chocolate chip molds. They are AWESOME!!!!! (Van Yulay Chocolate Chip Mold)

Each mold has 64 cavities

A little over 1/2 cup of liquid chocolate yields roughly 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (this was by adding 1/2 cup or so to 4 of the “VAN YULAYS” chocolate chip molds. I own 2 so I did it twice. About 256 chocolate chips).

8 blocks of the unsweetened bakers chocolate melted down (with the honey, paraffin wax, xylitol & coconut oil) yields a little bit more than 2 cups of liquid chocolate. (I took the other half and made cookies (recipe coming soon). The next time I make the chocolate chips I will be more accurate. It’s definitely close to 3 cups though.

(either repeat with your 2 molds or stock up on 4 of these. 🙂
