Are you even allowed to eat chocolate on a keto diet?
Sadly, standard grocery store chocolate and chocolate candy bars are NOT keto friendly. They are loaded with sugar. One small candy bar has more than a weeks worth of carbs for someone on a keto diet.
While there are some keto friendly chocolate brands out there, they are extremely expensive. Luckily, you can purchase our delicious Keto BHB Chocolate Powder for less than $25! One bottle has 15 servings, so you can make plenty of keto crunch bars without breaking the bank.
What I love about these candy bars is how much they taste like the real thing. Ever tried a crunch bar? I made a bunch of these for my friends, and everyone claimed they tasted like a keto friendly crunch bar!

Expert tips for success
Microwave the mixture in 20-second spurts, or you risk the chocolate burning. Avoid using chocolate chips, as they don’t melt anywhere near as well as our chocolate BHB powder. Finally, for a fun twist, let the chocolate set in candy molds!
