Sugar Free Chocolate Pieces a.k.a Homemade Chocolate Chips

Today I'm sharing another great sugar free recipe with you. This is a recipe that I just discovered this week that I found over at Domestic Diva and it truly will change the course of my sugar free existence. That sounds a little dramatic, but I'm really not joking here. This recipe is amazing. Throw a few of these guys in a batch of sugar free cookies (and yes....I am planning on sharing my favorite recipe with you real soon...) and you honestly feel like you've died and gone to sugar free heaven. Enjoy.

Sugar Free Chocolate Pieces (Homemade Chocolate Chips)

*Makes quite a few...

1 Cup butter or coconut oil
3/4 Cup honey
1 Cup cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

Melt butter or coconut oil and honey in small saucepan. Stir in cocoa powder and vanilla extract until smooth and remove from heat. Line a 9 x 13 pan with wax paper. Pour chocolate in tray and freeze for 1-2 hours or until set. Chocolate may still be somewhat soft and pliable. Cut into small pieces. Use immediately in any recipe calling for chocolate chips or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container to use later.

*Note: Fold these homemade chocolate chips carefully when you use them in a recipe so that they stay together. Don't mix or over-stir or they'll just crumble apart. The result will still taste good, but I like to get a big bite of chocolate once and a while, don't you?

This week I'll be linking to some of these link parties.

Sounds delicious! I saw a chocolate chip recipe, but it used coconut butter (which apparently holds together better when you stir it into things). Super expensive, but if you have a high powered blender you can make your own much cheaper by blending coconut flakes until they become butter.
Anyway, these looks fantastic! Yay for having chocolate chips back in your sugar free life.
Thanks for sharing at Healthy 2Day Wednesday.
