This is the one. This is the recipe that made me think I could really enjoy “skinny chocolate.” Okay, it’s not really skinny chocolate because it has peanut butter in it, but it is wonderful. You want these in your freezer at all times to help you stay sugar-free painlessly

- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup peanut butter (I did not use a runny type of natural peanut butter. That could make this more difficult to firm up. You might want to experiment with your favorites.)
- ¼ cup butter
- ½ tsp vanilla(Must be real, alcohol-based; water-based vanilla may harden your chocolate as you’re stirring.)
- Shake of salt
- 3 TBSP powdered Pyure* (or Gentle Sweet or Homemade Pyure, or other stevia blend)*Or use 6 TBSP of a cup-for-cup powdered sugar sub
- 1 ½ TBSP cocoa powder
- Melt peanut butter and coconut oil together until just melted. Do not heat or boil.
- Add remaining ingredients, whisking quickly to combine thoroughly. Do not delay and pour as soon as mixed.
- Pour into molds or flat container.
- Freeze for a few minutes until solid.
- Remove from molds or cut into squares and store in air-tight container in freezer.
Also, see instructions for making powdered sugar-free sweetener here. Note that this can be made with granulated sweetener, but would have to be mixed in a food processor in that case.
Very Low Carb (VLC): This is very low carb, depending on the peanut butter you use.
Family-Friendly (FF): Your kids will probably love these little bars. They do not, however, pack well because they become soft after a while at room temperature. Store these in the freezer (perhaps in an empty broccoli bag to keep kids out of them??). 🙂
Store-Bought-Stella (SBS): These are not difficult to make—and are very quick. The main thing is to not overheat your butter. You just want it soft/melty. And to stir quickly and pour right away so that ingredients do not separate.
Homemade Hannah (HH): HH’s will love making their own homemade chocolates!
Freezer Cooking (FC): These need to be stored in the freezer. I just break them right into a small plastic-ware bowl and stick in the freezer. No need to flash freeze or freeze in layers.
Trim Healthy Mama-Friendly (THM) (www.trimhealthymama.com): These would be a definite S—though there would be some debate as to whether they are Deep S or not with the peanut butter.
Sugar Free (SF): Yes! And they do not even taste like it!
Gluten-Free (GF): Yes!
