This recipe was developed for our eBooks and we’ve had LOADS of great feedback, so we think you’re going to approve!

You can also check out our cooking tutorial on our to make the BEST paleo chocolate! We even made ours Sweetener Free paleo chocolate… just hold the natural sweetener! trust us.. it’s still super delicious! 

We’re talking NO double boilers and NO coconut oil/sweetener separation #annoying. Just a simple ‘chuck all the ingredients together and whiz’ kind of recipe! Yep, the BEST kind of recipe!

stuff you need
  1. ΒΎ cup coconut oil
  2. Β½ cup raw cacao powder
  3. Β½ cup nut butter (we've also used coconut butter before)
  4. ΒΌ cup honey (optional)
  5. 1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
now what
  1. Place all ingredients in to your blender or food processor (we use our Vitamix but a thermomix would work well too).
  2. Whiz until smooth, scraping the edges as you go.
  3. This will take around 3-5 minutes - the friction from the whizzing will combine all the ingredients to this perfect smooth chocolatey goodness.
  4. Carefully pour the mixture onto a lined baking tray or spoon in to silicon moulds and place in
  5. to the freezer for 15 minutes or until set.
  6. Break the sheet of chocolate in to pieces or turn out the chocolate from the moulds.
  7. Store the chocolate in an airtight container in the fridge.

  1. Thanks for the recipe will give it a go. In the Thermomix we are bale to blend and heat at the same time. Is it worth while heating the mix up a bit as we blend? Would this speed up the process and if so how much to warm it up? thx girls!

  2. Just a quick question does the coconut oil need to be melted or solid? Have always made paleo choc in a saucepan as I was unsure how to mix the coconut oil with other ingredients.

    Hi Jackie! It can be solid or metled (believe it or not!) the friction slowly melts all the ingredients together! Give it a try! πŸ™‚

    Hi Terri! When we used our friend’s thermomix we just turned it on and let it do its thing for 2 minutes or so – we’re not too sure how thermomixes work… hehe! Let us do some research when we’re back in town and we’ll let you know the exact deets! e + c

  5. Made these today using almond butter and they turned out absolutely delicious! Definitely a new favourite of mine

  9. Hello Merrymaker sisters,
    I have made this chocolate three times now but the second two batches haven’t turned out properly. I blend them in the vitamix as usual but the end product separates and is quite thick and grainy no matter how much I process it. Would you be able to help me troubleshoot this problem? I don’t know why my first batch was good and now I can’t get it right!!

  10. Post

    Hi Leah! Oh no! This makes us so sad πŸ™ no one wants grainy chocolate! We’re thinking the coconut oil may be getting too hot! How fast are you blending it? Slow it right down to like 1-5 on your Vitamix and mix it really slowly πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ e + c

  11. Thank you that’s probably what’s doing it – I’ve just been putting it on full speed whoops! I just love your recipes, thanks so much for the help πŸ™‚

  15. I just made this to go on top of your Paleo Choc Caramel Raw Cake and it is delicious. I simply made it in my regular food processor, (One day I’ll own a Thermomix), and it blended everything beautifully

    Hi Kathy! That’s fantastic to hear! So glad that it worked out and was super tasty! πŸ™‚ Great idea to pop it on top of the caramel cake! YUMMO!

  18. This chocolate is Devine! My kids love it and I hide their probiotics in it and freeze them in little moulds for after dinner treats. Can I replace melted cacao butter or cocoa butter for the coconut oil? I’d like to make some fruit and nut bars that will travel well but this recipe melts too quickly out of the freezer.

    Hi Niamh! Thanks so much for your feedback πŸ™‚ That is such a great idea! We absolutely LOVE it! You can DEFINITELY use cacao butter! We’ve actually been doing that lately and will be sharing a recipe super soon! <3

  20. Hi ladies,
    I was wondering instead of nut butter could I use cocoa butter? I have some left over and have no idea what I could make with it. Thanks x

  21. Post

    Hey Kate πŸ™‚ We’ve never used cacao butter in this recipe BUT we do make chocolate with cacao butter on the stove… if you haven’t tried here’s a recipe. Super delish! YAY xx

    200g cacao butter grated
    80g cacao powder
    Sweetener of choice or vanilla or both!
    pinch of salt

    now what… In a double boiler (a heatproof dish placed over simmering water) melt the cacao butter, continuously stirring with a whisk. Add the cacao powder, again continue to stir until it becomes this smooth chocolatey goodness. Take the dish off the simmering water and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Add the sweetener, continuously stirring. Pour the mixture into a jug and then carefully fill chocolate molds with the mixture. Place in to the fridge until set (around an hour).

  23. Just made a double batch of your paleo chocolate….wow! Yum! I had to scrape the food processor blade a few times at the start as the mixture was very thick, but it didn’t take too long to finally become runny, just as you said it would. Add goji berries (had my doubts) but was scrumptious!! Way too easy to eat!! Thanks for a great recipe!

  25. This is so yummy thank you girls! I added coconut cream in mine because I had some left overs in the fridge and also had to add water to make it mix properly. So much cheaper than buying paleo chocolate πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  28. Hello girls,
    Been a fan for a while now and just wanted to say thanks for recipes and kitchen inspiration ????
    I have tried this recipe twice and am happy with the results, it’s a great chocolate! I am considering trying something like this but adding some cacao butter (maybe melting it properly then adding in a slow stream to processor at the end of the mix…), as I wondered if I could make a chocolate that was a tad less coconut-oily and a bit more solid at room temperature.
    Have you done anything like this before? Just thought I’d ask before a mess with a batch…

  29. Post

    YES this is a great idea! This way it won’t melt as easy either! YAY! You ahve to melt cacao butter at a low heat and then you can also melt the sweetener into it too and then add the cacao powder. Let us know how you go! YAY!

  30. I’m new to the MerryMaker world and this is your first recipe I have tried. OMG, what a great start to our new life together. Major yumo. Thank you!

    ps. You don’t have salt in the list above.

    Hey Jodie! YAY! Welcome to the Merrymaker World! It’s a fun world to live in! Hehe! We’re so super glad you love the chocolate recipe! Which one to pick next?!:O Hehe! Thanks for letting us know baout the salt! We’ll add it πŸ˜€ x

    You can make nut butter with a high powered food processor πŸ™‚ simply whiz them on high till smooth. You could also use coconut butter or peanut butter.
