Healthy Sugar-Free Chocolate Recipes – Yummy!

Sugar-Free Chocolate Recipes You’ve got to try these Sugar-Free Chocolate recipes made with Stevia.

These Chocolate Bites (Bombs) are Yummy!  In the picture the lighter chocolates are my Cappuccino Chocolate Bites, and the darker ones are Double Chocolate Almond bites.  Trust me, you’re going to want to make these sugar-free chocolate recipes.

I Love Chocolate!  Bet you do too if you’re reading this.  I’m celebrating a 30 pound weight-loss since Thanksgiving, and am working on re-setting my metabolism to maintain my new “skinny” weight.  Sugar and fat have been non-existent in my diet for a while, which has meant no chocolates or desserts (other than fruit, which can be very satisfying.)  But OH fruit with Chocolate tastes so much better.  And it’s funny, while I used to consume too many calories (and not always the best types of calories) which had my body gaining weight, holding onto inflammation, and hyper-sensitive to way too many foods.  I’m now able to eat a lot of things that used to bother me, and now I’m actually finding it difficult to get in all the calories I need to be consuming daily to maintain my weight!

Which is how I found these fabulous sugar-free Chocolate recipes.  And of course because I find it completely impossible to actually follow a recipe, I’m now off on a tangent creating a bunch of new variations to taste and try!

I’m listing my first two recipes in this post since after posting this pic of my chocolates on Facebook, I had a bunch of people begging for these recipes.  They are super-easy to make, give it a try and let me know what you think.

Double Chocolate Almond Bites (Bombs)

Dark Chocolate Layer
2 T Coconut Oil, melted
1 T Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder
2 dropperfuls Stevia (I used chocolate flavored stevia)

Almond Chocolate Layer
1 T Coconut Oil, melted
1 T Almond Butter
½ T Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (I used the Dark cocoa powder)
1 dropperful Stevia (I used chocolate flavored stevia)
sprinkle of Pink Salt

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients for Dark Chocolate Layer in measuring cup with pour spout
  2. Pour into tray (I used candy molds, but an ice cube tray, or mini-muffin tins work great too)
  3. Place in freezer until solid.  5-10 min.
  4. Combine all ingredients for Almond Chocolate Layer
  5. Pour on top of solidified Dark Chocolate Layer
  6. Return to freezer until solid

By my calculations the entire recipe is approximately 465 calories.  So depending on how many you make, divide 465 by the number of bites and you’ll have a per bite calorie count.  I ended up with 15 little chocolates so approximately 31 calories each!  If you’re using ice cube trays you might have bigger bites and more calories per piece!

Cappuccino Chocolate Bites (Bombs)

These are the “BOMB!”  So yummy!

Ingredients:

4 T Coconut Oil
1 T Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder
2 packets of FUXION Ganomas Café Cappuccino USA
2 dropperfuls of Stevia (I used toffee, but chocolate, or plain would be great too)
1 T Cacao Brew (fine-ground roasted cacao beans)  World Berries brand from Natural Grocerers.

Directions:

  1. Melt Coconut oil
  2. Add cocoa powder, dry Cappuccino powder, stevia, and cacao bits
  3. Pour into candy mold, ice cube tray, or mini-muffin tins
  4. Freeze until solidified.

A tad higher total calories on this recipe 562, but I poured more bites out of this, 20 to be exact, so my actual per piece calorie count came out to 28 per bite.  Do the math, it will depend on how big your bites end up being.

These are such a great alternative to a candy bar!  Healthy fat, sugar-free, and YUMMY!  I’m sure once you whip up a batch, you’re going to start creating your own delicious flavor combinations.  Have fun making healthy sugar-free chocolates in your own kitchen with these two sugar-free chocolate recipes.

The Cappuccino Packets that I used to flavor my Cappuccino Chocolate Bombs is from a new company called FUXION, that’s in pre-launch in the USA (and full disclosure, I’m an independent business owner, and super-jazzed up about these products and the company!)  The FUXION product used in my cappuccino chocolate bites is Ganomas Café Cappuccino USA, this product makes a fabulous drink, and I’ve got another recipe or two to share that I’ve come up with using this. (P.S. I didn’t use to like coffee, but LOVE drinking this!)  If you want to check it out, and order some to make chocolates, click here. And please contact me if you’d like to learn more about the FUXION opportunity.
