Making sugar free chocolate chips is really quite easy, although I will admit it can be a bit tedious at times, especially when you compare how easy it is to just buy them from a store.

Oh the sacrifices we make to stay sugar free.

Now, the you’ll want to use the Scharffen Berger brand of unsweetened baking chocolate if you have any big allergies. It’s a very, very natural brand that is pretty much the highest quality you can get.

If you don’t have any big allergy restrictions, and are okay with a lower quality chocolate, then just use unsweetened baker’s chocolate from the supermarket. It works just as good (but it depends on how many preservatives and whatnot that you would like to avoid).

More about the Scharffen Berger baker’s chocolate. Here’s the entire ingredient list on this chocolate:

  • Cocoa Beans
  • Whole Vanilla Beans

That’s it! There’s only 2 ingredients in this amazing sugar free baker’s chocolate! It’s perfect for any type of baking involving cookies, fudge, and more!

The only disadvantage is that it costs about 4x as much as regular baker’s chocolate, and you will need to buy it online.

It’s worth it if you are trying to avoid preservatives. Now if you are lucky enough to find a local brand that is a similar quality, then that would be just swell!

The main thing to remember with these chocolate chips, is that they are often softer than normal chocolate chips, so it’s often not practical to just store them in the cupboard.

I find that the freezer works best, especially if you use freezer-burn resistant bags.

1In a double boiler, melt the bakers chocolate. Once it's melted, add in the Agave Nectar and mix well while still on medium heat. Instead of a double boiler, you can also put a metal container holding the chocolate into a pan filled halfway-full of water. The water in the pan will heat of the metal container, melting the chocolate, but keeping it from burning in the same way a double boiler does.

2Put the metal container (or pot) in a sink with room-temperature water. Let it cool for a few minutes so it's not so hot.

3Spread the chocolate liquid onto a parchment paper-covered cookie sheet. Put in freezer until hard.

4Cut up chocolate slab into chip-sized pieces. Voila! Homemade, sugar-free, natural chocolate chips!
