DIY Healthy Chocolate Chips (just 3 ingredients!) | Save money and control the ingredients by making your own chocolate chips with raw cacao and cacao butter. These are the basic building blocks of chocolate in its purest form, and they're packed with nutrition! | WildernessFamilyNaturals.com

Have you ever wanted to learn to make your own chocolate from scratch, so you get to decide how sweet or how bitter it is?

But… aren’t there bags and bars of chocolate at the grocery store? Why go to the trouble of making itty-bitty morsels of chocolate when you can just drive to the store and buy them in a bag?

Bags of store-bought chocolate chips are full of refined sugar, milk solids, and often, soy lecithin. If you’re allergic to dairy or soy, those are out for you. If you’re avoiding refined sugar, you’re out of luck.

The allergy-free chocolate chips are delicious, yet they also come with a high price tag.

So you can save money and control the ingredients by making your own with WFN’s raw cacao powder and cacao butter.

These are the basic building blocks of chocolate in its purest form, and they’re packed with nutrition!

Raw cacao powder is high in iron, fiber, and Vitamin C. (Read about all 8 health benefits of raw cacao and then decide if you want fermented or non-fermented cacao.)

Cacao butter is high in antioxidants, plus it’s a super healthy fat.

Maybe you’ve never thought about making your own chocolate chips until now?

Well, here’s your chance! And I bet it’s easier than you think!

DIY Healthy Chocolate Chips

Combine the following in a double boiler (or a glass bowl on top of a small pot of boiling water).

Whisk the ingredients slowly as they melt together.

Once melted and creamy, remove from the heat. At this point, you’ve got ganache. Drizzle it over popcorn or ice cream, or dip fruit in it. Yummmm!

To finish making healthy chocolate chips, line a jelly roll pan (the kind with a lip) with parchment paper. Pour the melted chocolate into the pan. Spread it out evenly.

Transfer it to the fridge or freezer and allow it to harden. Remove from the refrigerator or freezer.

Either break the chocolate apart into chunks. Or if you prefer a more uniform size, use a knife to cut the chocolate into 1/2″ strips, turn the pan, and cut perpendicularly into 1/2″ chunks.

Transfer your healthy DIY chocolate chips to a bag and store them in the fridge or freezer. Use them as you would regular chocolate chips!

Have you ever made homemade chocolate chips? Can you believe it only takes 3 ingredients?!

    I am wondering if you have a white chocolate recipe? Several of my children need to be on a low oxalate diet. And cannot have the lovely cocoa powder anymore 😢. I have tried one recipe and it didn’t work well and am hesitant to try more on my own. I’m not to creative in the kitchen. 😊

    Thank you!!

      We are currently working to develop a white chocolate recipe, Heather! Hopefully we can have that for you soon! In the meantime, could you try carob powder?

      Hello Heather, I make White Chocolate with Cacao butter and Maple sugar. I melt the cacao butter over low heat and then pour in in my stone grinder and add the maple sugar to taste. I run it until nice and smooth. Pour into a tray to cool. It is great with crushed candy canes on top for peppermint bark.

      There isn’t a substitute for the cacao butter, Jean. That is what gives the chocolate it’s flavor.

    I would use your coconut syrup for the chocolate chips. I need to reorder your coconut oil which is the only one I buy. Centrifuge spun. But, what I need is help in a low caffeine chocolate. I get the jitters on chocolate. Do you have any suggestions on what to substitute? Could you make a low or no caffeine chocolate???????????

      Unfortunatly, Carolyn, we’ve never heard of “caffeine-free” or “decaf chocolate”. It’s an intriguing concept, though. If you’re that sensitive to caffeine, of which chocolate has little, perhaps it’s best for you to avoid it. We’re glad you love WFN coconut oil!

    You don’t mention tempering the chocolate before making the chips.
    The last time I attempted chips, they ran during the baking process and melted out of the cookies.
    Is tempering necessary?
