Sugar-Free Chocolate Recipes

Chocolate is unlike any other flavour I can think of. It is baked with a rich, creamy sweetness that we all crave from time to time. 

But the rich flavour carries a lot of sugar that some of us might not be ready for. I have 3 sugar-free chocolate-inspired recipes down below to help you out!

We start with sugar-free chocolate bars you can make or mould into any shape. Then we have a sugar-free chocolate cake followed by sugar-free chocolate milk. 

All the recipes are SUGAR-FREE and are still just as tasty.

FAQs

Do I need a mould to make chocolate?

If you are looking to make any shapes, then you will need a mould. If you are okay with chocolate pieces, then you are going to need a small tin tray. 

You will fill the tray or mould with chocolate and place it in the fridge. 

How long is the chocolate good for?

Chocolate pieces are good for 2-3 weeks at average temperatures. They can be kept in the freezer if the chocolate isn’t exposed. In the freezer, the estimated time chocolate expires is two years.

Does cocoa powder have sugar?

Cocoa powder has a small amount of sugar, depending on the brand. You can find products that are sugar-free or don’t have sugar added.

Depending on what you want your sugar intake to be, you can find cocoa powder based on your preferences.

Can you make sugar-free dark chocolate?

Yes, you can make sugar free dark chocolate. It is easier to make sugar free dark chocolate because added sugars take away the bitterness.
