In my opinion, dark chocolate should be a vegetable and can absolutely be counted as one of your nine a day!
But seriously, organic dark chocolate (85% or above) is an amazing source of antioxidants and is super high in magnesium, the much-needed mineral that is used in over 300 metabolic processes in the body, especially those involved with stress management. That’s why you feel so great after eating a square (or three)…
This chocolate bark makes a great holiday gift or easy dessert, and is so simple to make!
Cranberry, Pumpkin Seed and Coconut Dark Chocolate Bark
4 x 3.5oz Bars of 85% or more dark Chocolate (I love Lily Sugar Free Chocolate)
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
Break chocolate into chunks and melt slowly in a double boiler. Whilst the chocolate is melting very lightly grease a sheet of baking paper with the coconut oil.
Pour the melted chocolate onto the baking paper, and sprinkle with the pumpkin seeds, cranberries and coconut. Place gently in the refrigerator, and chill for about 2 hours or until set.
All of these ingredients are from my go-to for all our pantry, pet food, clean beauty and household products, Thrive Market! Use the link below to save a huge 25% on your first order (I would use mine to buy more chocolate)…
