Stevia Sweetened Chocolate's (Dairy Free, Soy Free, Sugar Free!)

The stores are bursting with chocolate bunnies and Easter candies right now! My kids are enamored by all of it and were really excited that we could make our very own Easter bunny candies! What a fantastic project to do with your kiddos, especially those who can't eat store bought chocolate. We made our chocolate extra dark and used a really cute chocolate mold I found at the craft store! There are lots of options right now you can pick up at your local crafting store, or if you want to order online, Here are some really cute ones!  

Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate 

Melt shortening in the microwave or in a double broiler. Add liquid stevia, then add cocoa powder and mix until completely smooth. If you want your chocolate thinner, add more melted shortening.  

*I chose to use shortening over coconut oil because I've found it to be more stable. If you prefer coconut oil, you may have to adjust amounts to get the right thickness. It's best to keep the chocolates in the freezer until the kids are ready to eat them because as they become room temperature they tend to be a little more delicate.
