Easy Homemade Vegan Chocolate Bar

Easy Homemade Vegan Chocolate Bar

Jump to Recipe

When I first started eating a plant based diet, I struggled at first with finding dairy free chocolate. I wish I had known then how easy it is to make your own homemade version from scratch! All you need are three ingredients, less than five minutes of prep, and you have your own easy homemade vegan chocolate bar!

What you will need:

The three main ingredients that you need to make your own chocolate are cacao butter, cacao powder, and sugar. I also added vanilla extract and some cacao nibs, but those are optional.

Keep in mind that that this chocolate quite bitter! For me personally, I like to make a big batch and then chop it into chocolate chips and add it in baked goods. But if you like your chocolate super dark and bitter, this one’s for you!

You will also need a chocolate mold if you want to create a traditional looking chocolate bar. I purchased mine for $4 on Amazon by searching chocolate mold. You can do that, or use any other mold to shape the chocolate into whatever form you like!

How to make your homemade vegan chocolate bar:

Start by melting your cacao butter. Use the double boiler method (add water to saucepan, and place the cacao butter you are melting in a bowl on top of it). Keep the heat on low, you don’t want to heat the cacao butter too much.

Once all of the cacao butter has melted, add your cacao powder and mix them well.

Then add your ground up coconut sugar and vanilla extract. Mix them well.

Take the chocolate off the heat, then fold in the cacao nibs (optional). Your chocolate is ready to pour into the mold!

Once you have poured the chocolate bar in the mold, refrigerate for about 15-20 minutes and you have your own homemade vegan chocolate?
