Making Chocolate

9 posts in this topic

I just ordered some organic cocoa butter to make my own chocolate. I am going to try this recipe.

http://www.precisionnutrition.com/chocolate-making

I think that this will be great b/c I need to be dairy free. Has anyone done anything like this?

Thanks!

Wow, I hope it works. Seems like I don't see coconut oil in commercial chocolate. I wonder why it's in the recipe? Did you get raw cocoa?

I'm dairy-free too but I just buy 70% dark chocolate at the store. :lol:

Yes, I bought raw cocoa. It's from a company in Venezuela. Tisano is the name of it.

What brand of chocolate do you buy? I'd like to check it out to see if it would work for me just incase this doesn't work out!

I'll post back after I make it this weekend! Wish me luck!

The one I was eating while I was trying to see if I was reacting to soy was Fearless brand Dark as Midnight and I really liked it. http://www.fearlesschocolate.com/2010/ I was getting the bars at Whole Foods. Theo also has soy-free organic chocolate. I can't remember whether I tried it or not but here's the site. https://www.theochocolate.com/store/ Happily I'm only needing dairy-free so I'm back to buying whatever high-quality dark chocolate is on sale and not worrying about the soy lecithin.

Thanks for the info!

Well I made the chocolate. It turned out great! It's really really good and very easy! Now I just need to break some into pieces for some chocolate chunk coconut flour cookies!

Thanks for posting that muffin recipe in the whats for breakfast thread. I didn't even know that coconut flour existed. I bought some after reading that post and I have been making all kinds of stuff. I made blueberry muffins last night. It was my first one in 3 years! So... thanks!!

Cool! So glad to hear the chocolate turned out. I might have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Glad you're enjoying the coconut flour too. I have been really happy with coconut flour baked goods. It's so easy and I love how they turn out.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
