Paleo White Chocolate

Breaking News:  I have been nominated for a best recipe in Paleo with my lemon cucumber noodles and also best Paleo Food Website.  I would love it if you could all vote for me HERE.  I am so humbled.  Thank you

So before all the haters come crawling out because this is titled white chocolate, I am very aware that white chocolate actually has no chocolate in it.  And just for you special people, you will see in my photo, I included some chocolate so my title still applies.  Honestly, if you want chocolate though, just add some cocoa powder to this one and voila.  I finally got some raw cacao butter to start playing with and I don’t know how I ever lived without this stuff.  Before I continue,  MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE FOOD GRADE CACAO BUTTER.  Now you can not get mad at me if you use palmer’s cacao butter and don’t get an edible product.  So yes, this was my first expirement with it and I have been working on an amazingly smooth chocolate macadamia nut butter that reminds me of velvet.  I know that may be a horrible adjective but it is early in the morning, and the first thought that popped in my head.Paleo White Chocolate

Speaking of adjectives, I do not know what possessed me to go back to school, but I am both enjoying it and hating it.  Like I didn’t already have enough on my plate, I stacked it higher with more to do everyday.  But I have to say it is fun, especially because it is all online.  It just wasn’t fun this week when the discussion forum post had to be on health and wellness and I had to talk about how eating whole grains and carbohydrates would improve my health.  Can you sense the enthusiasm in my voice?  So in case you don’t know me that well, you will know I did not write about that.  Instead, I took the 200 word minimum requirement and blasted my response to just over 1000 words with reasons why I should not eat whole grains or carbs to feel better.  Oops.  We shall see how my instructor responds to that one, here is hoping she likes Paleo.  But I have to pat myself on the back, I was very respectful and politically correct.

Paleo White Chocolate

Oh yeah, one more thing.  I know the holidays and thanksgiving is right around the corner and we all want recipes.  I was going to do a dedicated post just to all my recipes that are pumpkin themed and perfect, but I realized that would kind of be redundant.  Last year I made a Paleo Thanksgiving Ebook and if you are still interested, and have not received it as a bonus for buying my cookbook, you can grab it HERE.  I also finally got the search bar on my site where it is useful, so if you type pumpkin in the top right you will be overloaded with Pumpkiny Goodness.  I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving, and I will be working hard to pump out a few more recipes for your dinner table.  If you have any specific requests for me to try and make, leave them in the comments please.

  3. Whisk well ensuring there are no lumps left and everything is incorporated
  4. Transfer to a blender or a food processor and run it to get it as smooth as possible
  5. Pour into your chocolate molds or silicon cups and place in the freezer for at least an hour
  6. Remove and serve or chop them up and add them to chocolate chip cookies or muffins
If you don't have maple sugar, you can use 1-2 teaspoons of raw organic honey melted and your chocolates may be a little sticky

  1. Is the 2oz. of coconut milk powder in measurement (1/4 cup) or weight? This recipe looks amazing, and I just got my hands on all the ingredients to make it!

  2. Is the amount of powdered coconut milk correct? Most other recipes for white chocolate don’t use nearly that much powdered milk to cocoa butter.

  3. I attempted this recipe and it mixed really well but because of the vanilla powder it was more brown than white, so I used double the coconut milk powder to brighten it but still brown. is there a way to make it whiter?

  4. I am planning to use this as a drizzle on top of chocolate bark. The recipe says to put the white chocolate in the freezer which I assume is to set the molds. But will it set well enough to use as a drizzle if left out or if refrigerated instead? I just worry that if I put it in the freezer I’ll forget about it and it’ll get past the drizzleable stage. If that were to happen, can it be remelted and maintain a good texture?

  5. Help! My white chocolate expedition was a flop. When I put the mixture in the food processor the oil and vanilla bean powder separated. The coconut sugar and vanilla powder stayed together. I ended up with a bitter chocolate. I am guessing perhaps you didn’t use vanilla bean ground up which apparently is very heavy and separated itself from the cocoa butter. What brand of vanilla powder did you use? My kids are waiting for white chocolate for Christmas. They cant eat regular chocolate. Thanks!

    1. Coconut sugar won’t melt in cacao butter, which may be the problem. You can dissolve it in equal parts hot water first, then add to cacao butter.

  6. These look ah-mazing! I have been looking for soy- and crap-free white chocolate for years! Now, because of you, I can make my own! Thank you! I have been trying to make a paleo sugar cookie that really tastes like a sugar cookie! If you happen to know of any good recipes, that would be great! Thanks and Happy Holidays!

  7. I’m on a long term sugar detox and there is nothing I miss more than white chocolate, and I had no idea that they sold food grade raw cacao butter. Now I have an unopened pound of raw cacao butter staring at me, I’m a little worried that I might just melt it down and eat it all at once.
    I was thinking of making toasted coconut and pecan white chocolates, or maybe packets of instant coco mix or a white chocolate mocha. The possibilities are kind of endless :) If you have the time/energy you should post more paleo treats I can make with raw cacao butter.
    Your blog is amazing btw!!!

  8. Question…I tried to make this tonight and I’m wondering if the 1/4 cup of cacao butter is supposed to be 1 1/4 cups because mine wasn’t thin enough to pour at all. Unless I did something wrong and didn’t catch it…which is entirely possible. :)

  9. Oh these looked soo good. Now I am trying to find a way around the GMO corn syrup based Maltadextrin in the powdered vanilla and coconut milk. Anything corn syrup based causes a week long migraine event in my son. Dealing with Aspergers syndrome is hard on a good day worse with corn syrup. Sigh! But since White Chocolate is one of the loves of my life I am motivated to tweak your recipe. By the way my mothers heart is proud of your for going back to school. I know you will do very well. I voted for you and hope you win. Love your blog!

    1. Sarah, I’m intolerant to corn. There are a few options for the vanilla powder. You can take a vanilla bean and just grind it up. If you have the benefit of time, you have a couple of other choices. You can use a vanilla bean to make vanilla sugar. I’ve never done it, but I believe you just slit the bean(s) lengthwise and put it in some sugar and let it sit for a few weeks. You can also make your own vanilla extract with safe vodka. I use Ciroc, which is grape based. I use several beans, slit them lengthwise, and put them in a mason jar and fill with vodka. Put it in a dark place and shake it every so often. I think it takes about 90 days.
      As for the coconut milk powder, I think I would wing it with canned or homemade coconut milk. It will probably change the dry to wet ratio so it will take tweaking. I’m not knowledgeable enough to advise you on that, but I would think even an attempt to tweak this recipe would still be edible. :-)

  10. There’s nothing bad about today’s recipe! A nice treat. Went to the Paleo Magazine site and put in my two cents. I wish you good luck and hope you win in your categories. Much deserved! And good luck with school. I admire people who go back while having a “real life”. It was hard enough when I was young and dumb and had no responibilities.

  11. Good morning ”Paleo White Chocolate” I love your link to buy the ingredients so convenient! Can I assume if you are recommending a food product that it is both gluten and dairy free? Thank you for the great recipe. Side note I voted for you good luck

      1. I just wanted to let you know that the coconut powder you recommend (and all coconut milk powder on the market) contains sodium caseinate, a milk derivative. That isn’t a problem for me because I eat Primal rather than Paleo and don’t have any medical problems with dairy products, but if you do you may want to use something else.

  12. Congrats on the nomination! I’ve also got there pumpkin bug and would love a chewy pumpkin cookie. Maybe both a sweet one (chocoale chips) and savory one (crystallized ginger, maybe shortbread like with rosemary?). Sweet is relative of course since squash and carrots taste sweet to me and I am now loving 100% chocolate. I enjoy playing around with flavors so here’s some food for thought :).

  13. Awesome recipe, thanks! I cannot get coconut milk powder/vanilla powder in my area, is there anything else I could use to substitute that?
