Healthy DIY Chocolate Coating

Servings: 9 oz
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
This Healthy DIY Chocolate Coating is super simple to make with only 5 ingredients...  it works just like melted chocolate or candy melts, except it's way healthier.  You'd never know it's sugar free, low carb, dairy free and vegan!



  • Fill the bottom portion of a double boiler with 2-3” of water.  Make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the double boiler insert!  Place over a stove set to medium heat.
  • While the water heats up, add the cacao butter in the double boiler insert.  Whisk occasionally until completely melted.  Turn the stove off.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the erythritol, cocoa powder and xanthan gum.  Whisk the dry ingredients into the melted cacao butter 1 spoonful at a time.
  • Whisk in the stevia extract and let cool until thick and chocolate-like.  Coat your goodies then place them in the fridge to firm up.
