I have discovered that even the sugar in chocolate chips is too much for me. So, tonight [livejournal.com profile] krchicken  and I made agave sweetened chocolate chips. The recipe is as follows:

1 cup cocoa powder (we used Ghiradelli's)
1/3 cup and 1 tsp butter or coconut oil*
2/3 cup agave syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract


In a medium sauce pan, melt butter or coconut oil over low heat.
Add vanilla and agave nectar.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
At exactly two minutes, remove pan from heat.
Stir in cocoa powder (quickly, otherwise it gums up).
Pour/scoop into greased pan/mold.
Chill.
Remove from mold and chop into pieces.

The texture, because of the agave nectar, will be a bit chewy. The flavor will be the same as regular semi-sweet chocolate.

*I haven't tried it with coconut oil, although that's what the original recipe called for, because I did not want coconuty flavored chocolate in my mint chip ice cream
