Recipe: Dark Chocolate Chips

My newest snack obsession since cutting all sweeteners except for honey and maple syrup. I also like to take the chocolate sauce and make peanut butter cups with homemade peanut butter. The finished product is very dark and rich.

Honey Sweetened Dark Chocolate Chips

1 cup butter (coconut oil can also be used)
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup honey (or maple syrup)
2 tablespoons vanilla extract

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter, cocoa powder, and honey together. Once smooth, mix in the vanilla. Pour the finished chocolate sauce on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer. Freeze for 3 hour or until the chocolate is completely hard. Turn the chocolate block out onto a cutting board. With a sharp knife, chopped the chocolate into chips. Bag up the chips and return them to the freezer. Toss them frozen into favorite recipes like Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies.
