    What if you want healthy dark chocolate? Can you use skim milk, less sugar and less milk , more cocoa?

    if you want a healthy dark chocolate you would not use copha for a start the idea of the coconut oil sounds much better as for the rxtra cocoa powder I'd take norice of the experts and make it at least 70% cocoa. I do noy know about the milk powder as I would be inclined not to use fu;llcream for myself so the only answer I can give without actially trying it is maybe suggest that you you try it.

    Can you please give the measurements in cups or spoons rather than grams?

    Alexia x I do not know about the icing sugar but I'd guess at about 1 cup full
    although this may be oversweet the rest of the ingredients are given in tablspoons except for the copha and that or other oil is what was commonly known as 1/2 pound block
