Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Candy Bars are perfect for those with allergies and very easy to make at home!
See those two little squares of chocolate just waiting to be bitten?? These little squares of deliciousness are completely sugar-free! They have only 118 calories in those two pieces, 2 grams of protein and fiber!! Making your own candy at home is simple, affordable and not to mention so versatile!! Add in’s are endless!
Most, if not all, store bought chocolate and candy today has sugar in some form and preservatives in it. There are about two brands at Whole Foods that are sweetened with stevia and taste great, but very expensive. One 3 oz bar I found was $6.99!! Much cheaper to make your own is what I say, don’t you think?
But besides the cost of buying healthier chocolate at stores let’s talk about cravings shall we?! Giving in to chocolate cravings can be the biggest downfall when it comes to practicing a healthy lifestyle and/or trying to lose weight. But not indulging in chocolate just because you might lead a sugar free way of life or think you can’t possibly have it now that you need to lose weight, could put someone into depression! The key factor here is not so much enjoying chocolate, but it’s about the kind you are enjoying .
If you are indulging in typical white sugar filled, preservative filled store bought candy bars then yes, the sugar in them causes cravings for more. But when you choose to make candy bars at home and use healthier ingredients and sugar free alternatives, your body will be satisfied, won’t have that typical spike in blood sugar and it certainly won’t make you crash after eating any. No spike in blood sugar means you won’t be craving more and more after indulging in a few pieces.
With just a few ingredients and a candy bar mold, you’ll be enjoying your creation to curb your sweet tooth which of course will help you keep on focus with your healthy eating track!
If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate or need a dairy free option this candy bar is made with coconut butter, you can tell by the lighter color than the chocolate bars at the top of the post. This recipe is exactly the one I used for making my No Bake Chocolate Coconut Butter Bunnies last year for Easter! Just melt and pour into candy bar molds. I honestly don’t think it has a coconut flavor because the chocolate flavor is more prominent, but you can be the judge as this takes literally less than 5 minutes to make and 30 minutes or so to harden.
- You can use whatever milk of choice you like although I have only tried it using 1% dairy milk.
- For a dairy free option I would suggest unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk.
- To make the coconut butter bars, just follow this recipe for my No Bake Chocolate Coconut Butter Bunnies and pour into candy bar molds.
- Melt all ingredients in a sauce pan over low heat on the stove until completely smooth.
- Pour into candy mold and refrigerate or freeze until hardened.
