Helpful Recipe Tips
Do not let the mix boil! I can't stress this enough. Chocolate isn't meant to get past a certain temperature. If it does it will seize and you'll see it begin to separate. Now, in the video you will notice mine did but this is due to doing too many thing while recording. If the chocolate just seizes and doesn't burn the taste will be the same you'll just find yourself constantly stirring. But, if it burned! Start over again.
Liquid monk fruit is a must. I am adding 2 different sweetness levels. The bottom is barely sweet but using 1/2 teaspoon of monk fruit will make it very sweet as it typically is. Liquid stevia is an option but I recommend you use monk fruit. Chocolate intensifies the aftertaste of stevia so for someone new that won't be very pleasant.
Dutch processed cocoa will give the richest chocolate flavor but you can also use regular cocoa powder as well. If you want to go dairy-free sub the heavy cream out for coconut cream.
