  • 3/4 cup cocoa butter
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp Swerve confectioner


  1. If using a double boiler method: Add 1” of water to a medium saucepan or pot and bring to a very gentle simmer. Place a heat-safe bowl on top of the pot so that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water. You want the steam from the water to gently warm the bowl.

  2. Add the cocoa butter to the bowl and stir occasionally with a spatula until smooth and melted.

  3. Once melted stir in the unsweetened cocoa powder and Swerve.
  4. Remove the bowl from the heat. If the chocolate starts to become too hard while dipping or pouring, just put the bowl back over the simmering water.

Recipe Notes

If you prefer to use a microwave, microwave the cocoa butter in 15 second increments, removing and stirring each time. After a few rounds, the cocoa butter will start to melt. Stop when it’s almost fully melted and continue to stir until smooth.
