Most of us can't get cocoa beans where they live, or it's just too expensive. With this simple Instructable I will show you how to make delicious chocolate at home using only the basic ingredients which everybody has at home or can get at local supermarket for small amount of money.

For your convenience i wrote down all the measurements in metric and American system, if I conver metric to american wrong let me know.

Step 1: Ingredients

Ingredients you will need for this Instructable are:

Milk - 150ml (2/3 of a cup)
Cocoa powder - 220g (2 cups)
Butter - 160g (3/4 of a cup)
Water - 230ml (1 cup)
Flour - 30g (1/4 of a cup)
Sugar -120g (1/2 of a cup) - if possible use powdered sugar

Step 2: Step 1

Take 220g (2 cups) of coca powder (make sure you take as finer powder you can find, look at the picture) and put them in a bowl. Take 160g (3/4 of a cup) of butter and put them in bowl containing the cocoa powder. Using a spoon grind bigger pieces of cocoa powder. I recommend chopping the butter in smaller pieces for easier processing. Put the contents of the bowl in a blender or a food processor and blend them into a fine paste (check the last picture), if you don't have an access to a blender or a food processor you can use a regular mixer for the job but I will warn you, it will be messy.

Step 3: Step 2

Put 230ml (1 cup) of water in a pot and put the paste you made in previous step in it. Heat it up until its hot, but not boiling. Put the fluid back in the bowl and add 150ml (2/3 of a cup) of milk , 30g (1/4 of a cup) of flour and 120g (1/2 of a cup) of sugar in while it hot. Put the mass in a food proccessor or mix it by hand until you get rid of the lumps.

Step 4: Step 3

Put the chocolate in different molds, ice cube trays, bowls to get different chocolate shapes and put in a fridge or the freezer for at least 6 hours. After it cools remove the chocolate form the mold using a knife and enjoy your homemade chocolate.
The sugar they said to add i have to add more than that because it will still be bitter
Yeah i had the same problem. Ended up adding more while taste testing in the pan and turned out great
It is very bad <br><br>I will never open this site <br><br>Yaaaak......<br><br>Bad <br>this pic of recipe is very nice u bad<br><br>
What if I don't have flour .?
This was rich, but super yummy! I only used one cup cocoa and heated everything in the saucepan until melted. I used ice cube trays to make shapes and let it freeze for about an hour and half. Needs a little more freezing, but my husband and i couldn't wait to try them! &lt;3
VERY bitter chcolate syrup recipe
<p>it was awsome.</p><p>i tried it at home and it worked.</p>
<p>Another internet waste of time unless you are trying to make an half- assed Bitter chocolate syrup. Then its spot on! Even though I added another cup of sugar &amp; teaspoon of vanilla I still end up with a gooey mess over my killer marzipan very disappointing did not mix well with cold milk but did dissolve in hot milk cant belive this was top of google search</p>
And thus the Will Wheaton, Good Eatin' snack food empire was born.
<p>Does anyone know if you can use vegan butter and a plant based milk for this recipe?</p>
<p>This recipe is actually pretty addicting! :) :P</p>
<p>I made this yummy recipe! Tip: for milk-chocolatier chocolate (not dark chocolate) add more powdered sugar :) It is very easy and delicious! It tastes and looks just like store bought chocolate! </p>
<p>It's truly delicious</p>

<p>i was here</p>
<p>Water? Flour?</p><p>Seriously, please don't tell people how to make chocolate if you don't know how to make chocolate...</p><p>Anyone that does want to make some, if you want it to taste much better buy some cocoa butter (the solid kind that's for consumption), which needs to be melted at 125 degrees F. If you have any powdered milk, you can add some to make milk chocolate (don't use milk, the chocolate will not set), or buy some powdered whole/full cream milk.</p><p>Don't add water or flour, not at all!</p>
<p>Ok, Mr. Know-it-All. It doesn't really matter though because I tried the recipe and it actually tasted good. It may not be chocolate in your book, but it sure is in mine! (people put water in chocolate and this is a recipe for people who don't have cocoa butter, a candy thermometer, or powdered milk)</p>
Should we really not add flour and sugar
Thats too long 6 hours thats too long to wait<br>
<p>can you make a another post for very unsweet dark chocolate </p>
<p>Great with 1/2 cup of water and melted caramel squares in the middle</p>
How long do I cook the chicken for?and how much concentrated should I put in?
Oh my favourite chocolate
Hello,<br>Can we replace sugar with some artificial powdered sweetners (sucralose/stevia etc) and still get this chocolate as a result, would really happy to know. Thank you
<p>We are based out in Bangalore, specialized in making Premium Belgian Dark Chocolates replacing sugar with Stevia. It taste simply awesome. You can get them from us, if you need them mail at swee10@chromachemie.org</p>
<p>what mold did you use to make such nice looking chocolates? bless</p>
<p>Any way to make this without flour? Can't find any other recipes...</p>
<p>How much does this make??</p>
<p>Looks good, water is not good for chocolates. Try using butter and dry solids instead of liquid</p>
<p>being at celiac risk and IBS, </p><p>I only used 2 spoonfuls of pure cacoa powder, 4 teaspoons of pure cane sugar, and 2 cups of pure coconut milk stirred on medium heat while boiling.</p><p>It came out pretty good, already started to get hardened 3 hrs in freezer.</p>
<p>did it really work?</p>
For me it did, once a bit goes in your mouth, it melts in your mouth.<br>Good if you have the same issue as me and have a hard time swallowing. <br>xD
<p>good clear cut instructions</p>
<p>it worked out really well! THANK YOU..........</p>
<p>Which Flour should we use for making this Chocolate???</p>
Oooo, and no flour.
Oooo, and no flour.
Don't put the water in it. The water you need is for a double boiler not to put in the chocolate.
<p>it's been 4 hrs after I put the chocolate in the freezer and it's still in liquid form</p>
Dont add water and milk just add cocoa powder milk powder and icing sugar mik these incredients with butter (boil butter in double boiler) within one hr yu will get chocolate
<p>I used the conversion that josh.zirpoli provided so thank you for that. </p><p>I poured one batch into a tray of muffin tins and froze that then placed the caramel like failure of a previous fudge making venture on top of the hard chocolate then covered that with a second batch of chocolate and froze. They are absolutely amazing! The less sweet chocolate works well with the super sweet maple caramel thing but I think if I was just going to make chocolate into bars or something I would absolutely use at least a whole cup of sugar. </p>
<p>i want to this recipy without butter</p>
<p>Use coconut oil 1 to 1 replacement</p>
Can you make this without flour??<br>
<p>Seriously liked the above methodology. i made a few chocolates through DIY kit on <a href="http://www.bonbons.in" rel="nofollow"> www.bonbons.in </a> They were amazing.</p><p><a href="https://www.facebook.com/bonbonschocolates" rel="nofollow">https://www.facebook.com/bonbonschocolates</a></p>
