I am so excited about my DIY 3 Ingredient Real Chocolate Recipe. Not only are the chocolates delicious and my family loves them, but I know they are good for our health too. I highly recommend you try this recipe.
It literally takes 5 minutes and the chocolates taste way better than store-bought versions.
If you want to know more about the health benefits of eating cacao, please take a look at my post: Cacao Vs Cocoa: What You Need To Know. You will discover that unfortunately, most chocolates in the market are not real chocolate.
So make your own DIY 3 Ingredient Real Chocolate Recipe!
Luckily, I was able to find organic cacao powder at Whole Foods but it is also available online. I thought of making my own chocolate and found an amazing 3 ingredient recipe. Yes, only 3 super healthy ingredients. Make your chocolate in fun molds. I used the egg chocolate mold and a heart chocolate mold. You can also simply use a classic chocolate bar mold.
Now this is what I call a healthy treat. Eating chocolate can bring health benefits, lots of health benefits! Make sure you choose a virgin coconut oil and raw honey. You can also use maple syrup instead of honey if you like it better. This DIY Real Chocolate Recipe is so easy to make.

Tip: Store your chocolates in the freezer and take them out a few minutes before serving. They taste amazing! With this recipe I made 30 mini chocolates. You can use maple syrup and swap coconut oil for cacao butter(creamier version) as well. I am also going to try incorporating other flavors like vanilla extract, pinch of salt, berries, and chopped nuts. So many flavor combinations!
DIY 3 Ingredient Real Chocolate Recipe
- ½ cup cacao powder
- ½ cup virgin coconut oil (make sure it is melted)
- 4-6 tablespoons raw honey (depending on how sweet you like your chocolates). You can also use maple syrup.
- In a medium size bowl, mix all ingredients. You want to incorporate all ingredients really well. You can whisk by hand or using a hand blender.
- Put the mixture into fun molds (I used the egg chocolate mold and a heart chocolate mold). Place in the freezer for about 1 hour.
