The intense sweetness of white chocolate makes it a yummy candy. Here's a low carb white chocolate almond bark for those on a sugar free diet.
As mentioned in a previous post, I worked in a candy store when I was a teenager where I made hand made candy. So, many could argue that I was once a professional candy maker as we mad treats for the store by hand.
This low carb white chocolate almond bark recipe is another remake of a candy that I used to make and sell. The shop sold both white and regular chocolate almond bark.
It was a simple recipe where we had to melt the chocolate disks in the microwave. And then you mix almonds in and spread it out in a pan to harden.
When it came to almond bark, the white chocolate version was always my favorite. I had been hooked on white chocolate even as a kid.
While all my siblings would get the regular chocolate bunnies at Easter, my mother would always get a white chocolate one for me. White chocolate is basically cocoa butter with milk, sugar and possibly vanilla flavor added.
I was able to find food grade cocoa butter for a reasonable price in a natural food store. There's also a great organic cocoa butter made by The Raw Food World that is available on Amazon.
I recently bought some powdered xylitol so I thought I'd try it in this candy. If you don't have xylitol, I'm sure powdered erythritol and/or stevia would also work just fine.
This low carb white chocolate almond bark is fine to store at room temperature, but I like to keep it cold in the refrigerator. If you don't like almonds, you can just leave them out and pour the melted cocoa butter mixture into molds.
UPDATE: I have modified this recipe slightly to make sugar free white chocolate bars. You can view that recipe here.

I have problem, when i put all the ingredients together, grease from butter starts to separate. If i put in refrigerator, it doesn't taste good, it is too greasy.. Can sunflower lecitin solove this problem?
Did you use cocoa butter or dairy butter? The recipe needs food grade cocoa butter.
NEVER, NEVER use or have xylitol if you have pets, especially dogs. Xylitol is EXTREMELY toxic to dogs and even a very small amount will KILL your beloved pet!!!
I don't use it anymore, not because of pets, but because it can have an impact on blood sugar levels. It's easy to sub with another sweetener.
At what point would one add the milk powder?
I add it in once the cocoa butter is melted.
Could this be made with Splenda? Sugar alcohols give me bathroom issues. If so, which type?
I'd use a liquid sucralose because the bulk kind uses a carby filler.
I just made this using cocoa butter organic of course that I order from Amazon and used swerve ...I follow the receipt but when I melted everything it melted the cocoa butter but it look like it was just oil and sugar...tried a taste and it was like I was just tasting sugar grains...I thought maybe it would get better onced it harden so I put them in little tiny cupcake mold...tried it in the morning and it was awful, smelled great but just crumble and the sugar was all I tasted...epic fail
I'm not sure. I've made this with plain powdered erythritol and powdered Swerve. It sounds like there was too much sweetener. Did you use powder or granular? You need the powdered one.
How was the texture? I tried to put cocoa butter into a chocolate recipe once and it was like eating a candle. I'll try it because I miss white chocolate so much. I'm in the middle of making the almond joy bars. Love the recipes!
If you are getting a waxy texture, it could be the quality of the cocoa butter or not enough added dry ingredients. With chocolate, I add unsweetened Cocoa powder and with the white chocolate, adding powdered milk improves taste and texture. For peanut butter type chocolate I add unsweetened peanut flour or powder. All have come out with a good chocolate texture.
Thanks, Lisa. I'll try that. 🙂
This looks amazing! do you have the calories for a serving?
I will update the post to include the nutritional value. I calculated 386 calories for 1/7 of the recipe.

U just found your GREAT blog! Yay! We have some ingredients in common, check mine out too! I am SO EXCITED to find this recipe. I wanted to make a low carb recipe that called for white chocolate and I thought it was impossible. But LOOK! You are my HERO!! 😀 I will add your blog to my bloglist!
Love your blog! Been a reader for several months. Glad to see you back after the beautiful baby boy.
I may try adding some powdered milk next time. It will increase the carb count, but should give it the creamy milk flavor.
This looks so good. Interesting about the milk powder. I actually have some coconut milk powder. I bet it will work? It is very fine and of course unsweetened. How much to you think?
I've never tried the coconut milk powder, but it sounds like a wonderful sub to the powdered milk. I'm going to give that a try. I love coconut!

Never thought such a thing was possible! Thanks for the idea.
Okay, you sold me. I am buying some cocoa butter at the next opportunity!
