Just 4 main ingredients:
Mixed together in a bowl (after first melting the coconut oil):
"Whip it good":
And poured into a mold of some sort:
The last step is putting it into the freezer to set for a couple of hours. And, voila, homemade chocolate bars!
In these photos, I was making half the recipe below which produced six
2 1/4" x 2 1/4" squares (and about 1/4" thick). I used a dessert pan I happen to have. I've also made the full recipe and used a regular loaf pan to make one large bar.
Homemade Chocolate Bars
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted*
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup agave
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Melt the coconut oil, then whisk together all of the ingredients until completely smooth (the cocoa powder will clump, just keep whisking and stirring). Pour into a lightly greased mold (a loaf pan works fine) and put it into the freezer to set (at least 2 hours).
It's best to store the bars in the refrigerator or freezer.
* I use unrefined, extra virgin, unprocessed coconut oil.
