Because who wants to spend nearly $10 on a premium bar of chocolate without all the crap? Not me! And this recipe is super simple. If you don't want to buy a set of chocolate molds (to make the chocolate look fancy!), then use any baking dish or glass pan as a mold and cut it up by hand. It doesn't have to look perfect! All that matters is that it tastes great (which this does!) and it made with the best possible ingredients.
During the weekends, when I've got my meal prep hat on I'll use whip these up between meals and make a bunch of extra chocolate bars to store in the freezer so I have them on hand. It's fun and really satisfying to peel these out of the chocolate molds -- and it seems way more complicated and fancy than it really is!
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Yields: ~3 bars of chocolate
- 1 cup non-alkalized cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2 tbsp of raw honey (add more for sweeter chocolate)
- 1 tbsp of pure vanilla extract
- Melt coconut oil over low heat
- Add cocoa powder and whisk until there are no chunks
- Turn off heat and add honey and whisk until the mixture is fully combined (no cocoa chunks!). If the recipe is still too thick then add more coconut oil, 1 tbsp at a time until the consistency is just right.

- Pour into ~3 chocolate molds and let cool in the fridge until hard
- For maximum freshness, store in the freezer
