A few months ago, I went down to Princeton to Whole Foods -- a store I love. It amazes me sometimes how many new and wonderful foods I find there. The last time I was there, I found a chocolate bar -- a baking chocolate that is parve (many of the baking chocolates are certified dairy even if there are no dairy ingredients -- if they're made on dairy equipment), 99% cocoa and natural. I bought it and checked it out with my alternative medical practitioner (he checks foods to see how my body reacts to them and the food that works with my body I can eat) and he said I could eat it.

I took the chocolate and melted it, added 2 tablespoons each mixed chopped nuts and cacao nibs (chopped cacao beans) and two teaspoons (equivalent to about 1 cup of sugar) of stevia. Then I took the mixture by the 1/2 tablespoon and put them on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. I then put the cookie sheet in the refrigerator and when the chocolate solidifies I take it off the parchment and put it in a plastic container and keep them in the refrigerator. I love them. (I had to find the baker's chocolate on the 'net to buy it again -- it just came today so I could make more....). This time I added a bit of erythritol to help with the sweetness (the chocolate is a bit on the bitter side) and I think it helped.
