Chocolate Chips (Dairy & Refined Sugar Free)

Chocolate Chips

Chocolate Chips no longer need to be a food of envy.
These Chocolate Chips are not as pretty or symmetrical as store bought ones, but they are healthier versions. Each one is as unique as you are (or odd, depending on your take on people!).
This is a very simple way of making Chocolate Chips. You make the chocolate then cut it up into little pieces; either the fun way or the sensible way. I prefer the fun way; either jumping on a zip lock bag full of cut chocolate or banging on the bag with a rolling pin. My technique of choice will depend on my level of built up anger!! The ‘adult’ (aka boring) way to make chocolate chips is to cut the chocolate with a sharp knife.

These chips will melt at room temperate and don’t hold their shape in baked goods the same as regular Chocolate chips, but they taste the same and work in all your baking. I like to have a batch already made and ready in my freezer. You never know when the urge to bake may come over you! If you’re looking for baking inspiration I’ve added a few recipes you’ll want to drool over.

  • Place the pieces in a zip lock freezer bag.
  • Using a rolling pin, hammer, your feet etc bang the bag until the pieces are broken into smaller pieces.
  • Use immediately or refreeze for later use.
  • Alternatively, use a sharp knife and a cutting board to cut the chocolate into small pieces (this is the more grown up way to make Choc-chips).
  • Use immediately or refreeze for later use.
