A Delicious DIY!

We are never without chocolate in our house, whether it’s dark chocolate for guests, or a treat for us, or low carb bars we find all over Brooklyn stores.

Dark chocolate is worth keeping around- it’s incredibly beneficial. From a previous post of ours, (Chocolate Truffles!)

Chocolate gets a bad rep for causing weight gain, acne, and boat load of other ailments. Sure, when you cram a cup of sugar into each bar, that’ll run you into some problems. If you put poison into an apple and ate it, would you blame the apple? Real chocolate is full of fat, fiber, antioxidants, iron, magnesium copper, manganese and other minerals. It also helps reduce blood pressure and improves brain function, among many other benefits.

The low carb chocolate bars are a hit or miss, unfortunately. We’ve tried dozens of low carb alternatives to chocolate bars and most taste great, but leave us with the all too familiar stomach issues. This is mainly caused by maltitol, a sugar alcohol that’s most widely used in sugar free candies. Eat too much of it and you’ll be running to the bathroom all the day. It’s uplifting to see, however, that some companies are opting to use a more forgiving sugar alcohol, erythritol, in their sugar free products (see: ChocoRite, Bai5 Flavored Water, Lily’s Chocolate, Breyer’s Carb Smart Ice Cream).

We at Tasteaholics use erythritol almost exclusively as our sugar substitute. It’s affordable, tastes great and measures like sugar in baked goods. Best of all, no bad reactions!

The best low carb chocolate bar we’ve found is called ChocoRite. It’s made with erythritol, Stevia and inulin which all attribute to its sweetness. It tastes great and has only 1 gram of net carbs per dark chocolate bar. They’ve got a lot varieties too! The only down side is that each bar is quite small and the entire pack is quite expensive. We find it at Walgreens and pay about $6 for a pack of five 28g bars.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Melt 4 tbsp of butter and an ounce of unsweetened baker's chocolate, stirring well.
  2. Add in 1 tbsp of heavy cream and 3 tbsp of powdered erythritol and stir.
  3. Then add the vanilla and salt and stir.
  4. This step is optional, but it gives the chocolate a good boost: crack some sea salt into the chocolate mold.
  5. Pour your chocolate batter into the chocolate mold over the cracked sea salt.
  6. Give it a shake to help the chocolate spread into the corners.
  7. Freeze for an hour and enjoy!

    i only have unsweetened cocoa powder but 1 oz or 30 grams seems to little, how big is the bar? i want to make 100 grams
    thanks

      We don’t measure/weigh our final results in grams so it’s hard to say, sorry! If I were to compare this bar to the size of a standard Hershey’s bar, I would say it’s 1.5 times that size. If you’re using cocoa powder instead of baker’s chocolate, I would add an extra tablespoon of butter. I can’t promise you’ll get the same results as we did though.
