HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE CHIPS
14-16 ounces of unsweetned chocolate (about 8 blocks of “Bakers” brand – Bakers Chocolate)
5 tbsps of powdered xylitol (Xylitol Canada)
3-4 tbsps of RAW organic honey (I use “Dutchman’s Gold RAW Honey” Dutchman’s Gold RAW Honey)3 tbsps of coconut oil (Carrington Farms Coconut Oil – can be found at Costco)
1-2 tbsps of paraffin wax
Grab a double boiler
First melt down your 3 tbsps of coconut oil and wax.
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.
I grind mine down with a coffee grinder. This one is from Walmart.
It cost about $15 bucks!
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. 🙂
