Sugar Free Dark Bitter Sweet Chocolate

Written by Sweet Life


Finely chopping your cacao butter, helps with the slow melting process in step 1.


It is important to remove the saucepan from the heat before you place the bowl with the cacao butter over it, as you will spoil the texture and appearance of the final chocolate.


Depending on the consistency of your mixture at the end of step 3, you may not need to blend the chocolate. This is only required if you still have some xylitol which hasn’t fully dissolved.
