February 1, 2019

 

 

 

I can’t say enough good things about these Dark Chocolate Superfood Bites, they are just plain sensational. I wish I had doubled the batch when I made them but unfortunately I didn’t. Next time I make them, for sure I will. They are to die for!It is made up with dried cranberries, pistachio pieces, and pumpkin seeds. {**If you don't like some of those ingredients, don't worry! I have a ton of variations that you can use on this recipe!}

 

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 2 mins

Total Time: 17 mins

Servings: 24 servings, 1 bite each

 

 

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces

  • 12 Tbsp. raw pistachio pieces

  • 12 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds

  • 12 Tbsp. unsweetened dried cranberries

  • 1 tsp. coarse sea salt (or Himalayan salt) (optional)

 

Variations

  • The following raw nuts (alone or in combination) can be substituted for pistachios: almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, peanuts, pecans, or walnuts.

  • The following seeds (alone or in combination) can be substituted for pumpkin seeds: chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, or sunflower seeds.

  • The following unsweetened dried fruits (alone or in combination) can be substituted for cranberries: apricots, blueberries, mangos, raisins, or tart red cherries.

  • Substitute unsweetened shredded coconut for seeds.

 

Instructions

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe glass measuring cup. Microwave for 60 seconds on 50%; stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds on 50%; stir until chocolate is completely melted. If needed, microwave for an additional 30 seconds on 50%. Do not overcook. Chocolate will melt as you stir it.

  3. Use a spoon to make twenty four small rounds of chocolate onto the parchment paper.

  4. Working while chocolate is still warm, sprinkle chocolate rounds evenly with nuts, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, and salt (if desired).

  5. Let the chocolate set at room temperature, or put the bites in the refrigerator to speed things up.

 

Tip: The higher the percentage of cacao in chocolate the better. Look for chocolate that is at least 70% cacao.
