Most of us enjoy eating chocolate bars - but as of lately, most of them are packed with artificial sweeteners and binders and pumped with saturated and Trans fats making them an unhealthy choice for a good treat. This is because corporate chocolate gifts, chocolate gift boxes and bars are manufactured and sold to make maximal profit and not to offer a tasty and health-conscious product. So if you’re worried that this might be a difficult task, rest assured that making your own chocolate bar at home is one of the simplest desserts you can learn. To make it extra healthy, we always prefer creating a dark chocolate bar as it contains extra anti-oxidants and nutrients. I know what you’re thinking, if we need to find dark chocolate, wouldn’t it also be full of unwanted ingredients? Well for this particular reason, I prefer to order chocolates online and only from reputable retailers that are stocking only high quality products; and one shop has never failed me so far: chocolak.com – I recommend going through their selections and picking a dark chocolate that will suit your home made chocolate bar.
- 2/3 cups of low fat milk
- 120 grams of butter
- 1 cup of water
- 200 grams of dark chocolate- find these chocolates online at Chocolak
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 cup of sugar
Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl until it is fully liquefied. I prefer melting it in the microwave at 30 seconds intervals.
Next, add the butter to your melted chocolate. Using a spoon grind bigger. Place everything in the food processor until they form a paste.
Place the cup of water in a pot, and ladle in the chocolate and butter paste. Start heating but don’t let it reach boiling temperature. Once Hot, return it to the bowl and add the milk, sugar, and flour and mix.
Take the content and place it again in the food processor and process, until no lumpy texture is seen.
Place the chocolate past in a mold of choice to give it the desired shape – most people prefer rectangular, and place it in a fridge or freezer for at least 6 hours.
Once the bar turns solid, you can safely remove it and let it cool to room temperature to have you own dark chocolate bar.
