Paleo Chocolate Bark

Paleo Chocolate Bark

Dark chocolate is one of the best paleo ingredients, it makes everything taste better.  It seems you can really pantry dive or raid the fridge for whatever ingredients you have on hand and as long as you have chocolate to hold them all together, you’re good.  So this recipe is really just a jumping off point. I could imagine this same technique but topped with cashews, cayenne pepper and dried mango. Or what about cacao nibs with dried strawberries and blueberries?  The possibilities really are endless.

Sure, eating chocolate by itself is great too, but these other ingredients really make this treat special. Not only is it crunchy, chewy, sweet and salty all in one bite, but all the fiber in the nuts and dried fruit help to slow down the absorption of the small amount of sugar in the chocolate, so it’s a win/win!

Paleo Chocolate Bark
18 oz Dark chocolate (70% or higher)
Sprinkle of Maldon sea salt
1/3 c Pepitas
1/3 c Almonds
1/3 c Shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3 c Mixed goji berries and raisins

Pepitas

Coconut, Goji and Raisins

Toasted Almonds

Prepare your ingredients so you have them on hand. I like to lightly toast my seeds and nuts in a dry frying pan over med-high heat. This gives them more flavor because it warms up the essential oils and releases them. If you decide to do this just keep and eye on them to make sure they don’t burn, tossing often.

Dark Chocolate

Melt your chocolate in a simple double boiler until completely melted and smooth. You can use less if you don’t want quite so large a batch.

Spread the melted chocolate on a wide cooking tray covered in parchment paper or aluminum foil and sprinkle with your toppings evenly.  Let cool for several hours until the chocolate is firm.  It helps to put it in the fridge but that might make it dry out a bit.

With all these flavors and textures I think this makes the perfect movie snack, try it yourself!
