I have been meaning to post this recipe for a long time and today, here it is. Homemade chocolate that you can mold how ever you like and use any toppings of your liking. Vegan chocolate that is to die for!
For this homemade chocolate version I made it into a Halloween theme but you can just use any nuts or toppings of your liking and make it as you wish. I thought this would be a healthy, fun and easy thing to make for the kids.
These are really cute and you can make with the kids as well as decorate them together. They will keep in the fridge best, as they will melt above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, I let some of mine sit for a while and they started to become a little bit soft and messy.
I got about 9 chocolate tablets but you can double the batch and get more if you like. Mine lasted not even a day. They were so good. This is what I am going to be making from now on when ever we crave chocolate.
- If you don’t have chocolate molds you don’t have to buy any if you don’t want to. The chocolate shapes would be prettier with them but you can also pour the chocolate mixture over an aluminum foil lined baking sheet and when the chocolate has solidified you can just cut it with your hands or a knife into chunks. It is that simple!
I hope you like this simple homemade chocolate perfect for Halloween. You still have time to make it so I hope you do. It is super good…

Thanks for a recipe that is so simple & yet fun for the kids to do.
Would like to ask if I can substitute the coconut oil with other oil?
I am not sure. Coconut oil will solidify so the only one I can think of is butter but I don’t think it will taste right!! Sorry I couldn’t be of any more help!
I never thought about chocolate being vegan or not before. It makes sense the heavy cream that is usually used. I bet with this recipe your wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. this seriously looks so gobblelicious!
I absolutely love this recipe and it is going down at this house. I always have these ingredients so it will be easy to make when I am getting a chocolate craving.
This recipe comes at the perfect time. My son told me just the other day that the one thing he wanted me to make was homemade chocolate. I never have so thank you for this recipe. My kids will be happy to know I found a recipe to use.
