I do love my chocolate and luckily for me I have alot of low carb chocolate recipes to satisfy my sweet tooth. This is a basic low carb, sugar free chocolate recipe that you can easily make for yourself. Or these candies would be a great gift to those on a keto or diabetic diet.
I usually make these low carb keto chocolate candies for myself but with some nuts, extracts or other add ins you can customize this recipe for gifts. Here’s how.
Low Carb Keto Chocolate Candy Ingredients
First let’s talk about the basic ingredients: cacao butter, unsweetened baker’s chocolate and Swerve confectioner’s sweetener. Here is link to my Amazon store which has most of the ingredients and products that I used for this recipe. I’ve found I like Swerve‘s confectioner sweetener the best as granular can sometimes make the chocolate more grainy.
Keto Chocolate Candy Recipe
This is really easy now. All you need to do is add the cacao butter, unsweetened chocolate and Swerve in a saucepan set to medium low heat. These ingredients will melt rather fast so keep stirring and when everything is almost melted take it off the stove.
Continue to stir and everything will melt. Get out your molds and pour in your chocolate. Set molds in the refrigerator for about an hour until they get hard. I like to keep mine in the refrigerator or freezer though they should be fine just sitting out.
What Kind Of Molds Can I Use?
Above you can see a spoon mold that I got at a Pampered Chef party. These would be nice gifts with some coffee or hot cocoa mix. This batch made the 8 spoons or 16 smaller candies from the molds pictured below.
I got the brown one at TJ Maxx and the star one from JoAnne Fabrics. I’ve even bought silicone molds from the dollar store! Again here are few in my Amazon store if you are interested.
The red mold above is actually a trivet. I saw somewhere that you can make chocolate chips out of it but I have not yet tried. This recipe would make great dark semi sweet chocolate chips.
Chocolate Candy Variations To Try
Things to try in these keto candies are
- flavored extracts like peppermint, raspberry, orange, caramel – this recipe would require 2 teaspoons of extract which you would add after everything is melted
- toasted unsweetened coconut – add to the mold before pouring for a chocolate crispy candy
- peanut butter powder – I use this in my chocolate peanut butter candies
- espresso powder or matcha green tea powder for a bit of flavor and caffeine
- low carb berries – like strawberries, raspberries, etc.
- nuts – just put in one or two into the molds before pouring (try almonds, pecans, walnuts or macadamias)
- spice – add a pinch of cayenne pepper or cinnamon for more flavor
By the way I got these cute Christmas ramekins at Target for $3. You can fill them up with candy and give as a gift. Or check out the dollar store for cute holiday boxes, bags other decorated containers.

- I like to store these in the refrigerator.
- NOTE*** I use Aldi's Baker's Corner unsweetened baking chocolate squares. You can find this type of bar in any grocery store in the baking aisle. The cacao butter I bought online and it comes in these little wafers. Lastly I really like Swerve confectioner's sugar as it seems to melt best and tastes the best in my opinion. You can find most of these products on my Amazon page.
