Over a medium saucepan containing about two inches of water, simply fit a heatproof metal bowl on top, so that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water. Bring the water to a simmer, then turn it down to low heat. Add the coconut oil and cacao butter to the bowl and stir once they are liquid. Add the stevia and stir well. Add the sifted cacao powder and xylitol powder, stirring until well incorporated. Sprinkle in your Jing It Up options, while stirring. Taste the chocolate and if you would like it sweeter, add additional sifted xylitol powder, one tablespoon at a time until it reaches your desired sweetness.
