Browned Butter Chocolate Bites

Ok.  I don’t think I technically used browned butter for this recipe but I’m ok with that as long as you are. Browned Butter Chocolate Bites | Life Healthfully Lived

I came up with these little chocolate bites while I was dog-sitting a few weeks ago.  I had limited ingredients at my disposal since I wasn’t at my house but I wanted to make a little fat treat for my evenings.  I came up with these simple candies and I was surprised at how much I loved them.

My chocolate-y (get it? ‘Cause he’s a chocolate lab?) assistant always here to help. Thanks Bronson.

Now, these aren’t super sweet.  In fact, they aren’t all that sweet.  But that allows the chocolate to shine through and I am all about that chocolate.  Feel free to add a little stevia/honey/maple syrup/sweetener of choice if you like your candy on the sweeter side.  I’m not here to judge. Browned Butter Chocolate Bites | Life Healthfully Lived

I’m just here to provide Browned Butter Chocolate Bites that might not actually use browned butter.

For one candy: Calories: 44 Total Fat: 4.64g Carbs: .67g Fiber: .4g Protein: .23g

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla ghee, I used this brand (you can use regular ghee but I loved the vanilla flavor in these)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons coconut butter (this is the brand I use)
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder (you can also use cocoa powder)
  • Flakey sea salt for finishing
  1. Add the ghee, coconut oil, and coconut butter in a small saucepan.  Stir over medium-low heat until everything is melted and combined.  Keep stirring and cooking until it starts to just bubble along the edges.  Remove from heat.
  2. Whisk in the cacao powder (and sweetener if using).  This might take a minute because you want to make sure there are no clumps.
  3. Pour the mixture into a silicone mold or ice cube tray.  Place the candy in the fridge for five minutes.  After five minutes, remove and sprinkle each candy with just a little sea salt.
  4. Place the candy in the freezer for about 30 minutes until completely hardened.  Pop out of the molds and keep in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer until ready to eat. Browned Butter Chocolate Bites | Life Healthfully Lived
