Do you have a weakness for white chocolate, but you're having trouble finding sugar-free white chocolate on the shelves? I had that exact problem. I can't say this is exactly white chocolate, but it's very yummy and a pretty good alternative if your crazy fanatical doctor has told you to "go low carb".
I found a basic recipe for a low carb / sugar free white chocolate alternative, but it was way too coconut-flavoured for me, and some of the ingredients were not easy to find; it was a bit fussy and not really what I wanted when it was done. So I had a go, and came up with my own recipe for sugar-free white chocolatey yumminess! The best bit, of course, is the taste! The second best is how very easy it is to make! And the third best is how versatile this recipe is: you can add whatever you like to this white chocolate alternative! Try delicious Macadamia Nuts (very low carb nuts), or Brazil Nuts (also very low carb). Dried Cranberries are a bit of a naughty (sugary) option, but in very small quantities we can get away with them.
You'll want to use a double-boiler so nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan. If you don't have a double-boiler, use the student hack and put a smaller saucepan inside a slightly larger one. With boiling water in the bottom saucepan, you're ready to use the top one to melt and mix with no sticking! Line a small shallow tray with baking paper or grease-proof paper.
Melt 60g of Copha and 60g of Coconut Oil over boiling water. Add 1/2 cup of Powdered Sweetener, stir to dissolve. Add 1 cup of Full-Cream Powdered Milk, stirring briskly to combine. This will look a bit like dough at this point. Remove from heat. Add nuts or whatever you like to suit your tastes and stir in well.
Tip the mix onto the paper-lined tray, and flatten it out immediately with the back of a spoon. Mark into squares with a knife, for easy breaking when it's set. Refrigerate until set. Snap into squares and enjoy a sweet, white chocolate-alternative! Yum!
This recipe is sugar-free and low carb, making it suitable for a keto diet. This recipe is not overwhelmingly coconutty, which is my biggest complaint about many low carb and keto recipes. Some seem to replace all the good stuff with coconut-everything. I hate coconut! The photos at the top of this article are of the finished product!
