Can I make dark chocolate candy using cocao powder?

I am looking for a few good recipes for making my own dark chocolate candies using cocoa powder and cocoa butter, and Splenda sugar substitute.

Hi Frank,

This is a question that comes up frequently in various forms. Unfortunately, I don't have an easy recipe for you.

Here's what some visitors have said about how to make a 60% dark chocolate bar using sweetener, so maybe you can get some tips there.

It's a bit tricky to try to make chocolate itself from scratch if that's what you are trying to do. I haven't seen a good "simple" recipe myself.

Here are some instructions on How To Make Chocolate From Scratch that will give you the basic steps involved.

Let us know if you find a recipe that works for you. There will be others coming behind you who will be thrilled if you share it.

Have fun!
