Ingredients

  • 14 oz dark chocolate, 70% cocoa - I used four (3.5 oz) Lindt bars*
  • 2 tablespoons honey*
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 16 oz cream cheese, soft

Instructions

  • Line the bottom of a square 8-inch Pyrex pan with wax paper.
  • In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt the chocolate with the honey and vanilla. Set aside.
  • Place the cream cheese in the food processor bowl. Process until creamy, about 1 minute, stopping once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Gradually add the melted chocolate mixture. Process to incorporate, stopping to scrape the bowl as needed.
  • Using a spatula, transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
  • Cut into 16 squares with a serrated knife. Allow the bars to come to room temperature before serving.

Notes

*For a low carb version, use 90% chocolate instead of 70% and replace the honey with 1/4 cup Swerve sweetener. Add the sweetener to the cream cheese, not to the chocolate mixture.
