Valentine’s Day is just around the corner which means that candy and chocolate is everywhere! My mom and I are suckers for white chocolate but that’s usually full of milk and sugar, so we got creative and created our own coconut based white chocolate with allulose 🙌🏻😋
My mom really loves whole nuts in her chocolate and her favorite is hazelnut, so we decided to roast some in allulose and pour the white chocolate mixture over that, creating something like a chocolate bark 😉
The hazelnuts can be substituted for any nut or seed or maybe even a favorite keto cookie or coconut chips 😍
For those who are purists like me, you can leave out the nuts and just make the chocolate base recipe. We will be coming out with a better pure white chocolate version in the future so stay tuned 😎
Here are the ingredients to make a block of bark that you can break up into small (or not so small 😉) chunks 👩🏻🍳:
7 ounces of pure organic cacao butter, we like Sunfood
3 ounces of allulose, we used madhava brand
2.5 ounces of powdered coconut milk powder, we used Kos Brand (make sure to check if it has any additives like starch)
3.5 ounces coconut butter
Fresh ground vanilla
Roasted nuts, seeds, etc
Begin by roasting the nuts in a pan on not too high heat to avoid oxidation. While the nuts are roasting, prepare a freezer friendly dish by covering it in food wrap or foil so that you can easily remove the chocolate
Set up a water bath by heating up water in a pot and placing a smaller pot over the hot water. Place the cacao butter and coconut butter into the top pot and slowly melt them!
When they are molten and have formed a homogeneous mixture, add in the allulose
Next, add in fresh vanilla and coconut milk powder
Lastly, spread out the roasted nuts in the freezer ready dish and pour on the chocolate mixture! Then freeze it until it’s solid and break it into pieces!
We store ours in a glass container in the freezer and take out a few pieces a few minutes before we are ready to eat. Since it’s basically a block of fat, it can became a bit soft at room temperature!
