These homemade treats are made with antioxidant dark chocolate in an ice cube tray!

Made with just 4 ingredients, this chocolate candy is free of oil  and artificial ingredients found in store-bought candies. With only 5 minutes of prep work, this homemade candy is the easiest dessert you will ever make. An ice cube tray is a trick to getting them to look fancy when in fact, they’re deceivingly simple to make.


Start by heating the almond milk, cocoa powder and vanilla extract in a saucepan, then pour over a handful of dark chocolate chips to melt them. It’s the easiest way to melt chocolate chips and makes them super creamy and decadent. Transfer the chocolate mixture to an ice cube tray, freeze and devour. It’s really that simple!

Eat these on their own or add these dark chocolate cubes to smoothies, coffee or hot chocolate for a creamy, decadent boost.
