Vegan Chocolate Chips

Chocolate chips. Do they need an introduction? An explanation? A direction on how to use them? Nah…But I do have to share them with all of you because they’re so yummy and good and easy to make – I know I say that about allΒ of my recipes πŸ˜€ I showed you guys how to make chocolate beforeΒ and I stand by my “make it your own” rule. Adjust the sweetener levels to your liking and you can even adjust the cacao butter level if you’d like less of it. I used to do half and half ratio for coconut oil and cacao butter, but I found out that I (and my stomach) like a bit less of cacao butter, usually about half the amount of coconut oil.

These can also be made with just coconut oil, cacao powder and sweetener of choice, but I think adding cacao butter benefits them greatlyΒ – mostly, it helps keep their shape longer as it doesn’t melt as fast as coconut oil.

If you want to see a short video of me making them, go here.

Make them and add them to anything you’d like. I love them in my purple sweet potato pudding!
