Keto Chocolate Candy Ingredients
You only need 5 ingredients to make this low carb chocolate: cacao butter, ghee, cocoa powder, peppermint extract and Swerve confectioners sweetener. I made these low carb chocolates many different ways but this my favorite combination to get a nice soft meltaway type of chocolate.
A note about the ghee. You can use coconut oil if you want. However sometimes you can taste the coconut flavor and that is why I used the ghee. The consistency is good though if you don’t mind the slight coconut taste.
Where to buy the ingredients
The ghee and peppermint extract you can find at your local Aldi. However you can also find them at a regular grocery store, along with the Swerve and Divine cocoa. Note I like Divine because it less carbs than the regular cocoa you find in the grocery store.
The cacao or cocoa butter is the only ingredient that might be hard to find but it’s worth it. It smells like chocolate because it is the vegetable fat extracted from the cocoa bean and often used in making chocolate.
You can find all of these ingredients in my Amazon store too.
How to make sugar free chocolate mint candy
I love this recipe because it only takes about 5 minutes to make. Start by adding the cocoa butter, cocoa powder, Swerve sweetener and ghee in a sauce pan. Whisk as it starts to melt and then take off the stove. Don’t let it boil just let it melt and mix completely. Then add in the peppermint extract and mix once more.
Pour into candy molds and then set in the freezer. You can also set them in the refrigerator but it will take longer to solidify. That’s all there is to it.
I like to store mine in the freezer so they last longer, however you can store them in the refrigerator if you want a softer candy. Since we are using ghee, it will still be a bit soft even though it’s frozen.
Where I get candy molds for this easy chocolate recipe
I have so many ice cube trays and candy molds to make these chocolates or other low carb candies. Below you can see where I got the molds for the 3 shapes I made today. However here are all the places I’ve found cool silicone molds and most are very inexpensive.
- Dollar Tree – seasonal shapes, like pumpkins for Halloween
- Dollar General – they have a new cake decorating section at my DG where I found this nice blue one
- JOANN Fabrics – they have everything there, including cool molds
- Candy Making stores – they usually have a wider selection but they aren’t necessarily silicone and I don’t really like them for this recipe
- TJ Max and Marshalls – they often have cute molds of a higher quality but you have to look for them
- Local grocery stores – the big Giant Eagle by me has them in random places and I often get nice ice cube shaped ones
I rounded up my favorite shaped silicone molds and put them in my Amazon shop if you are interested.
Below you can see how I took a bite out of one and it was pretty soft. I had just taken them out of the freezer. NOTE: You must keep these in the freezer or refrigerator or they will be too melty to handle.
