YUM. What’s better than dark chocolate? Dark chocolate with a purpose. These dark chocolate energy bites give you a little boost between meals and I never feel guilty about having more than 1 (or 2, or 3, or 4!)
I got this recipe from Undressed Skeleton, and I was so excited because mine looked just as good as hers did – that means that these must be super easy to make!
I bought 1 bag of dark chocolate chips, 1 bag of my favorite trail mix which included dried cranberries, almonds, raisins & pistachios (it was cheaper to buy trail mix than to buy all those ingredients separately) and my shopping was done!
– Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl for 20 seconds at a time, stirring in-between until melted completely. Lay out some waxed paper on your work surface and plop down a circle of chocolate about the size of a quarter. Press whatever kind of nuts and dried fruit that you want into the chocolate, and leave to set. Alternatively, you can put the waxed paper onto a baking sheet, and then transfer your energy bites to the fridge to set.
Once they’re set, peel them off the waxed paper, put them in a tupperware (or a pretty packet with a ribbon – would make a great gift!) and take them with you wherever you go for an extra boost throughout your day.
