I have been craving chocolate and was going to order a package of my favorite low carb chocolate bars. I don’t like the ones made with maltitol because they don’t settle well with me. I prefer the ChocoPerfection Bars which are really expensive. My order from Amazon.com was already pretty hefty so I left out the chocolate bars. Instead, I made a big bar of dark chocolate with regular unsweetened baking chocolate and some low carb ingredients I already had at home.
If you don’t already have a Chocolate Candy Bar Mold, you could use an ice cube tray or shape a mold out of aluminum foil. I happened to have a Wilton break away chocolate bar mold that I had bought locally at a craft store. I also used my Wilton Chocolate Melting Pot which I find makes it much easier to melt chocolate at the right temperature.

- Combine chocolate and cocoa butter in a double boiler or chocolate melter. Heat until all the chocolate and cocoa butter is melted. Add the powdered milk, powdered stevia, and powdered erythritol. Stir until all the powdered ingredients have dissolved and mixture is smooth. It may take a while to dissolve all the erythritol. Mix in vanilla extract after removing from heat. Pour melted chocolate into candy bar mold.
- Let cool in refrigerator or freezer. Once set, remove from mold. Store in covered container. Can also be stored in refrigerator or freezer, if desired.
