About: Hello and Welcome to In the Kitchen With Matt. I am your host Matt Taylor. My goal for the show is to teach you how to cook really good food at home for cheap. Eating out everyday can get expensive, but it doe…

In this Instructable, I am going to show you how to make chocolate with cocoa powder. This homemade chocolate recipe is so amazing and only using three ingredients! It creates a rich, dark/semi-sweet chocolate and is super delicious. And it is completely dairy-free with no cooking involved. It takes only about 5 minutes to make, minus the chilling time. Homemade chocolate with cocoa powder is so easy to make, if I can do it, you can do it. Let's get started!

Don't forget to follow me and check out my other Instructables. :)

Follow the easy steps below or watch the short video tutorial or do both. :)

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, make sure it is in liquid form. (120 ml) Food grade Cocoa butter can be used, but it is pretty expensive, depending on where you live. It will make the chocolate more stable at room temperature.
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened. You can also use Dutch Processed cocoa powder. (50g)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, icing sugar, confectioner's sugar. You can also use honey or agave nectar, or other sweeteners. (50g)


  • Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Sifter
  • Silicone molds or other chocolate candy molds

Step 2: Coconut Oil

Measure out the coconut oil into a medium bowl. Make sure the coconut oil is in liquid form, if not, you can melt it in the microwave or on the stovetop. If it is cold in your house, chances are it has solidified.

Step 3: Dry Ingredients

Add the powdered sugar and the cocoa powder to a sifter and sift about half of it into the bowl of oil. Whisk it in until smooth, then sift in the remaining bit. Whisk until all combined. Just like that, it is ready. Super easy right?

*If you are using cocoa butter, you will want to melt that as well.

Step 4: Mold and Cold

Spoon or pour the melted chocolate into whatever chocolate mold that you like. I have a plethora of silicone molds that I can choose from. They also have specific chocolate/candy bar molds that you can try as well.

Once the molds have the chocolate in them. Place them in the freezer or the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes until it sets.

Step 5: Finished Homemade Chocolate

Once the chocolate sets you can remove the molds from the fridge and then remove the chocolates from the molds. Pretty awesome! Enjoy!

Note: This type of chocolate needs to be stored in the fridge or the freezer. It will get very soft at room temperature.
