Chocolate chip recipe and any cocoa butter recommendations?
 
Got this recipe for homemade chocolate chips using erythritol and wanted to 1) share it and 2) ask for cocoa butter recommendations. I did a search on Netrition (one brand) and amazon (overwhelming volume of brands). Anybody know a good, organic brand?


Homemade Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips
Yield: About 1 cups

Serving Size: 2 tbsp

It's easy to make your own sugar-free chocolate chips. Using cocoa butter keeps them solid even at room temperature.

Ingredients

3 oz food-grade cocoa butter
2 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
cup powdered Swerve Sweetener or other powdered erythritol, sifted
2/3 cup cocoa powder
tsp vanilla extract
Instructions

In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt cocoa butter and chocolate together until smooth.
Stir in sifted powdered erythritol, then stir in cocoa powder, until smooth.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
Pour into chocolate molds or spread in an 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper.
Refrigerate until set, then chop into small chunks.
Notes

Makes 14 servings as chocolate chips (2 tbsp per serving). Each serving has 3.6 g of carbs and 1.8 g of fiber. Total NET CARBS = 1.8 g.

I've been using Tisano but have used the Navitas also. I love the Navitas raw cacao powder. The price will keep you from making it too often though.

I think this recipe came from All Day I Dream About Food. It's nice to give attribution.

Yes it did. I thought the bottom-most line in the recipe was the source but just looked again and I don't even know what that is. Thank you for pointing it out :)

I recommend the cocoa butter from Chocolate Alchemy.

I buy it from Ebay from a seller named Kessil2000. I've bought from that seller many times and I love the product. It used to come in chunks which had to be chopped up but now it comes in disks which are much easier to work with and I've even popped those in my mouth sometimes and let melt slowly for a quick snack.
