Enjoy the Make It Your Own Dark Chocolate recipe below!

My intention for sharing this recipe is you know all the ingredients you put in it, with the essential elements being the fun and love shared while making homemade candy with family. This recipe is for those who can eat candy occasionally in your diet. It has less sugar than processed, and it doesn’t have preservatives. This candy doesn’t last long at our house to need preservatives! The texture will change as you alter the ingredients and amounts; have fun creating new tastes as you experiment!

I’ve had fun playing with this recipe by changing the ingredients to what I have on hand. When I use smooth almond butter, I add pecan pieces. Sometimes I use honey for the sweetener; I always use local, pure honey. Honey tastes sweeter than maple syrup, so I taste it as I prepare it until it is sweet enough, and sometimes I add chopped Organic Medjool dates and decrease the sweetener to make them chewy. I hope you enjoy making this recipe your own by using the ingredients you love. Join me in making this world a little sweeter!
