Introduction: Homemade Chocolate Using Cocoa Powder

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

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! <3

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 & 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

Water? Flour?

Seriously, please don't tell people how to make chocolate if you don't know how to make chocolate...

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.

Don't add water or flour, not at all!

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)

Looks good, water is not good for chocolates. Try using butter and dry solids instead of liquid

PieroP5 made it!(author)2015-11-27

being at celiac risk and IBS,

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.

It came out pretty good, already started to get hardened 3 hrs in freezer.

For me it did, once a bit goes in your mouth, it melts in your mouth.
Good if you have the same issue as me and have a hard time swallowing.

Don't put the water in it. The water you need is for a double boiler not to put in the chocolate.

I used the conversion that josh.zirpoli provided so thank you for that.

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.
