Dig into Dark Chocolate (Homemade) in a Dash!

Aaah, TOTALLY amazing!!!

Thank you Chocolate Covered Katie for her brilliance :)  
She got me started with yummy chocolate from home!  

Here is what I do!

Here is all you need for Healthy Dark Raisinets Hearts!


Raisins (make sure they are unsweetened; no sugar in the ingredients list)
Unsweetened cocoa
Coconut oil (Awesome Organic Coconut Oil that I got from Amazon)
Agave nectar (we get this item from Costco, but you can find anything on amazon!)
Dash of salt (optional)

Melt 1/2 c oil for a short time (maybe 30 sec in a microwave (or on a candle warmer, another Chocolate Covered Katie trick), then stir in 1/2 c cocoa, and 1/4 c agave (it's still sugar, so try going with even less for an even healthier treat) until smooth.  Then mix in 1.25 c raisins, fill plastic bag, plastic container, or candy molds (I often use silicone bakeware as shown below), and freeze for a little while (15 min should be plenty of time).  

So easy you're kids can definitely make the recipe ...
with no strange ingredients or stove top worries!

Then sink your teeth into a delightful treat!

The chocolates shown are pretty huge and just part of one is super-satisfying!
The chewy raisins, frozen, almost give the texture of chocolate-covered caramels!

what else could I substitute for the Agave?

Thank you for asking! Well, that's all I've used, but you could try regular sugar or brown sugar or ground dates. I really avoid sugar, but using sugar for this, instead of buying candy, chocolate bars, etc, would still be a big improvement! Good luck and let me know what you end up trying! Have a good night!!

Absolutely easy to make and tasteful. My husband was a fan of your chocolate and he really dislikes coconut.
