Easy Healthy Chocolate

Who knew that making a chocolate bar could be so easy and so healthy?  Well, I do now!  Three simple ingredients is all that it takes:
1.  cacao powder
2.  coconut oil
3.  coconut crystals (coconut sugar)**

You have to make this according to your taste preferences.  If you want more bitter chocolate, add less sweetener, if you want it sweeter, then add more.

Depending on how much you want to make, melt coconut oil over low heat in a pan.  I used about 3 big scoops to make this.  Then, add coconut crystals to your taste and stir.  You do not need to have them melted or dissolved.  When you freeze it, it will still taste good.  Add some cacao powder, again to your taste.  When you have it the way that you like it, simply place into a glass or plastic container, cover and place into the freezer.  When it is frozen, take it out and give it a few minutes to get softer and then cut or break and enjoy.  

**You can add other sweeteners to this.  You could use agave nectar or even stevia.  The stevia gives a more bitter flavor, but some people really like it.  Experiment and find what you like.  It's worth the effort to have a chocolate that you can feel good about giving to your kids and yourself!
