Those sugar alcohols (such as erythritol) cause me horrible GI distress. I'm better off consuming the sugar!  I eat unsweetened baking chocolate when I eat chocolate at all.

It could be more safe and predictable to melt unsweetened chocolate and add whatever sweetener we use, then let it set up again.  Have people here done this method?

Yup, I've done that. I've also eaten the unsweetened chocolate plain when I REALLY wanted chocolate and felt lazy.

I am not sure if this brand is available where you are but this is the most amazing chocolate!!!  http://www.lovingearth.net/product-groups/1/raw-chocolate-bars
They are not cheap but they are full of organic "super foods" like raw cocoa, sour cherries, agave, goji, maca...  and they are fair trade

Quoted from Beachgirl
As on O+ & newly discovered Hunter, I was over the moon to find out that chocolate is a Superfood!!!!   I found some Chocolate Chunks by Enjoy life at Whole foods.  They're "NO TRANS FAT, NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS, VEGAN, KOSHER PAREVE, GLUTEN-FREE, CASEIN-FREE"  also, the ingredients are: Evaporated Cane Juice, Natural Chocolate Liquor (non-Alcoholic), Non-dairy Cocoa Butter  

I KNOW the evap. cane juice is sugar, but literally eating 3 or 4 little chunks goes a loooong way towards satisfying my craving & I'll usually top a spoonful of almond butter with a chunk or two to lessen the effect of the sugar.  They're not overly sweet, but they sure are chocolaty!

YAH!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing I am going to get some tomorrow.

I have; I add agave (or date sugar) to melted chocolate (sometimes I melt it in the microwave, and sometimes I'll melt it in a double boiler), and often some compliant nuts, then let it set up again and keep it in the freezer.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Sounds great, Drea, and also a lot cheaper than the chocolate we can buy that is sweetened with agave.
