Chocolate might be our very favourite treat. In fact, we love chocolate so much that even when we’re eating something sweet that’s not just a store bought chocolate bar, we usually pick the chocolate flavour in that as well! We’ll take chocolate cake, chocolate ice cream, chocolate pie… you get the picture.
Buying chocolate at the store is nice and easy (and we do it often) but as DIY enthusiasts, we always like to try our hand at making our favourite things ourselves. That’s why we’ve built this list of 15 awesome homemade chocolate recipes that we can’t wait to try (and that we think you should too)!
1. 3 ingredient homemade chocolate
Just because you’re going to make something yourself from home doesn’t mean it has to be complicated! Don’t let the idea of making treats “from scratch” intimidate you. Chocolate, for example, can be so easy to make that you only need three simple ingredients! Chitra’s Food Book shows you how it’s done in just a few simple steps.
2. Dried fruit and nut chocolate
Have your favourite chocolate treats always been the ones that have a little extra something inside? Some people like fruit cream or caramel, but others prefer a crunch or something with a little more substance to it so their chocolate becomes more of an actual snack. We love Savvy Homemade‘s idea of putting dried fruit and nuts in their homemade chocolate for some extra flavour.
3. Homemade chocolate creme eggs
Is your favourite kind of chocolate a seasonal treat that you can only buy in stores around a certain holiday? Ours is too and we look forward to stocking up on them every Easter! Daily Burn, however, has found away around having to wait months and months just to enjoy a good creme egg and we’ll be forever grateful. Check out how you can make your own at home!
4. Chocolate dipped caramels
Have caramel covered chocolates always been your absolute favourite kind, no matter whether they’re store bought or made by a “Mom and Pop” style company? We don’t blame you. There’s just something extra delicious about biting into a rich chocolate to find the perfect amount of gooey caramel inside. My Recipes teaches you how to make chocolate covered caramels in your very own kitchen.
