Candy Bar Recipe Using Stevia And Cocoa

Is there a candy bar recipe using Stevia and cocoa?


How do I make a candy bar chocolate from Hershey powder with Stevia?

I can't seem to find a recipe for this on the web.

Thanks,

Hi Christy,

I'm sorry to say that I don't have a recipe for making a chocolate candy bar with cocoa powder and Stevia.


There was another visitor (Sue) who said she had a recipe for making chocolate bars with cocoa powder, but she hasn't added it to the site yet.


I hope we'll hear from her soon. If we do, you could probably just substitute the Stevia for the sugar, using a lot less, of course. Stevia is available at Puritan's Pride.



I suspect you'll have to experiment a bit to get it right. I have a feeling this is a difficult task because I haven't been able to find anything like it online myself, and I've searched several times.


If anyone else has some helpful suggestions, please do chime in here! :-)

stevia
by: Randall

Stevia is very good, and it's VERY sweet, for example, just 1/2 a tsp will make a large mug of coffee quite sweet, whereas it may take 2 tsp of sugar to make it about that.
I would estimate to use about 1/4 the amount of stevia as you would sugar and see how it tastes, then adjust from there up or down.

If you use too much stevia, some brands may tend to be on the bitter side- NuNaturals is a non-bitter brand, so I use that myself.
It's not inexpensive, but since you use about 1/4 or even less that you would use with sugar, then you can say a pound of stevia is about equiv to 4 or 5# of sugar- that makes the price per container a lot easier!
The sugar manufacturers have been trying HARD to keep stevia out of the stores and off the market, but it's been used for a long long time in other countries and is made from a natural plant, it doesnt have the negatives sugar does.

I buy mine from amazon

Stevia sweetened luxury chocolate bar
by: Tina

1. Melt unsweetened baking chocolate (with a little bit of coconut oil/butter if you prefer a thinner chocolate).
2. Sweeten with liquid stevia (I use NuNaturals which doesn't have much of an after taste) after you take the chocolate off the burner since heated stevia tends to get bitter.
3. Stir in chopped nuts, rice/oat/corn cereal, chopped dried fruits like apricot or dates, shredded coconut etc. and spread on lined cookie sheet to cool and harden.
4. Cut/break into pieces and enjoy! Store in fridge.

Stevia Chocolate Bar
by: Joan

I bought the Melville/stevia chocolate bars from Amazon, but they were still too dark for me, so I melted them down, added reconstituted non-fat dry milk (a little over a cup) and six packs of Truvia stevia. Spread this on waxed paper over a cookie tin and stuck it in the fridge for a while. It got hard and I could break it up into pieces just fine. Tastes great!

Try this chocolate covered trail mix
by: Bonnie

use coconut oil, about 1/2 cup...use it while its solid or when its liquid. I added 3 tablespoons full of organic coco, pinch of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla and about 3 single serving packs of stevia(Truvia) mix it well, then spread out on a baking sheet lined with wax paper, and refridgerate at least 20 minutes or longer, then enjoy!! I was very satisfide with the results. You do have to keep it in the fridge in warm weather, but its refreshing eating it cold!!

Close to a choco bar, and with stevia
by: Anonymous

Hedonist hot cocoa:
It's not a chocolate bar, but it'll satisfy your cravings. For one cup, start with a goodly portion of high-quality cocoa (e.g. a couple of Tablespoons of Droste). Add a half a dropper full of liquid stevia. Add at least 1/2 tsp of very good quality vanilla. Add at least 1 tsp of Butter Buds. Mix in about 1/4-1/3 cup milk; it can even be low-fat. Fill up the rest of the cup with boiling water.

The key is really good Dutch-processed cocoa, and then the Butter Buds. With these, you can't tell that they're accompanied not by real sugar but stevia; it tastes like fab gourmet dark chocolate cocoa. (Vegans can substitute almond milk for the real milk, and almond extract for the Butter Buds, and it'll still be surprisingly good.)

Another alternative to a choco bar: make homemade chocolate pudding or custard, using any standard recipe (usually with milk, cornstarch, salt, lots of high-quality cocoa), using stevia rather than sugar.

Chocolate goop
by: Bev

I use this to make low carb hot chocolate but the goop tastes yummy on its own.

4 tsp. Frys cocoa powder
3 tbsp. heavy cream (35% whipping cream)
stevia to taste

Mix it all together and it gets very thick. I then add boiling water for a yummy low carb drink.

I'm going to try to refrigerate a batch to see if it will harden. I'll add butter to make it creamier and help it harden in the fridge.

stevia chocolate
by: Judyn2naturalAnonymous

When you use stevia in place of sugar, always use just a bit of sugar using the stevia to replace the rest....adjust it to you liking.

Chocolate yummy!
by: Judyn2nauralAnonymous

- make candies for kids using chocolate and delicious items to put it together..I use pretzels and dip them into unsweetened cocoa with stevia(instead of sugar) to taste plus salt free butter, almond milk unsweetened. You could make a strong hot chocolate with the milk, boil it down, thicken it with artichoke flour, boil and then dip in pretzels or strawberries or mint leaves, sliced bananas brushed with C water or lemon juice water first...same with apples and oranges. enjoy!!

Look for a guilt free chocolate fix
by: CBass

I thought I had a great idea!

Looks like you all have already been there. I purchased bakers chocolate melted it and added six packets of stevia to two squares of the bakers chocolate and even some salt to take the bitterness out...IT WAS BBBAAADDD :(

I was trying to satisify my "bad" with a good sweetner that didn't affect my blood sugar level.
