Diabetic-freindly chocolate morsels

Submitted by: LARMESDELUNE

Introduction

As I looked into furthering my options for lowing calorie and carbohydrates, I became dismayed at the price of pre-made sugar-free chocolate - two dollars for .02 oz of chocolate. Being the frugal lady i am, i searched for an alternative!

Ingredients

    Unsweetened Cocoa Powder - 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp
    Splenda original - 1/4 cup.
    Coconut oil - 4 tbsp
    Vanilla or imitation vanilla - 1 tsp.

Tips

I have no used anything but shortening type oil, if you use non-shortening oil, let me know how it goes.
Feel free to make adaptations, and be sure to let me know :)


Directions

Using a DOUBLE BOILER, fill the bottom pan halfway with water, set on stove to boil.

Measure out ALL of your ingredients while waiting. (Eliminates the chance of scorching.)\
One the water has come to a rolling boil, put your glass dish or the second part of your double boiler on top, TURN THE HEAT OFF.

Put the oil in to melt(If using a coconut oil shortening.) or to warm up(If using oil, oil.), once warm, pour in splenda, make sure splenda dissolves well. Pour in Cocoa powder, this will not want to dissolve, but keep stirring.

And the vanilla is actually optional, but i like it, so throw a tsp of that in there before removing from heat, and stir it about.

Place in another container that is shallow, wide, and flat, do not cover. Place this container in your freezer to chill the chocolate.

One cooled and solid, chop up into chips :D
Enjoy!

Serving Size: makes as many small peices as you cut up - i reccommend chipping it into 40 or so.
