    I have made my own choc for tonight. I used raw organic cacao, melted butter and coconut oil mixed with loads if shredded coconut and a teaspoon on stevia. Set it the fridge and it's like having a chocolate crackle

    DH made me homemade chocolate for mothers day using dutch cocoa, coconut oil and honey, it was amazing. I don't have stevia though. Might just try the cocoa, coconut oil and a sprinkle of sugar.

    You can get cocnut oil from woolies in the health food section or where the asian/indian items are. It's $6 for a big jar

    I made it up as I went along. I've experimented with it for a while but I think this time it worked pretty well.

    I used around about:
    1/4 cup of raw cacao
    3 tbsn of coconut oil
    1/3 stick of butter
    1 tspn of stevia
    1/4 or more of shredded coconut - this made it crunchy
    And I forgot to mention that I added almond meal to thicken the consistency.

    I melted the butter/coconut oil first and added cacao, mixed in the coconut and then mixed in the stevia really well (it doesn't dissolve that well but freezing is has helped). I then spread it out flat onto a plate and put it in the freezer for 15 minutes until hard and I could crack pieces off. I've just had some covered in cream.

    In terms of carb rating there are no carbs in cacao, stevia, coconut oil, coconut but there is carbs in the almond meal - about 6g per 30grams, so not sure exactly how much I used but maybe 2/3 of that.

    You could try dissolving the sugar first. Also make sure its cacao power and not cocoa. Cacao powder is much better quality for chocolate and far less bitter.
