Easy Homemade 5 Ingredient Chocolate Chips - with honey!

UPDATE: I made a FAR better recipe here: Homemade (Two Ingredient) Chocolate Chips. They don't have to be kept in the freezer and they taste like the real thing...but they're sugar free!

I have yet to find decent chocolate chips that don't have sugar or artificial sweeteners in them, so I made up my own recipe that is both delicious and easy. These are freezer chips, meaning that they have to be stored in the freezer until use, but they hold up alright in baked goods.

For about 1-2 cups, I use this recipe:

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1 TBS brewed coffee
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla.

1. I melt the coconut oil, honey, and coffee together in a sauce pan and then mix in the cocoa powder in until smooth.

2. Once I remove the pan from heat, I stir in the vanilla.

3. Taste test! If you think it needs to be more chocolatey, sweet, or more semi sweet, add cocoa, coffee, or honey accordingly. If you want to stop where you are and guzzle the whole thing, you're on the right track!

4. I grease a baking sheet with oil and then pour the sauce pan contents onto it and stick it on a flat surface in the freezer.

They should be ready in about an hour.

I have used butter before but they don't set as well as using coconut oil and they melt funny in your cookies. I don't have any pictures right now because the last batch I made I used butter and oil and they didn't set at all. :( Trial and error!

To get them off the pan, I just slice into little pieces with a sharp knife and then scrape them off with a scraper (while eating al least all of the "deformed" ones. :P)
