Oh boy! It’s 30ยฐC and it’s humid! Eeek! I’m sure you’re wondering how making these chocolate bites would be a good idea considering the fact that they would melt the moment I stepped outside, well do not fear! I’m off today and I have friends coming over to my apartment for some red wine, girl talk, and free air conditioning lol. Anyways, I decided to make it a little more fun by making these yummy bite size chocolate yumminess. These are healthy, nutritious, and all things good! Dark chocolate is full of rich antioxidants and they assist with weight loss, bloating, migraines, and a whole host of other things. Opt for dark chocolate that is 70% or higher to enjoy the full benefits, and always remember, moderation is the key, so make your treats an occasional indulgence ๐Ÿ™‚

Did I also mention that these are super easy and quick to make? Well they are! So go have some fun in your kitchen!

Recipe: makes 8

1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (I used enjoy life)
A handful of a raw trail mix blend (you can make your own, which is what I did, so I used a handful of almonds, pumpkin seeds, gogi berries, and unsweetened coconut flakes)

Melt your chocolate in the microwave with 1/2 a tsp of coconut oil.

Scoop 1 tbsp of melted chocolate into individual circles on parchment paper.

Place individual pieces of the trail mix on the chocolate and place in the freezer for about half an hour. If you can’t wait, check on them every 10 minutes until hard enough.

Enjoy!
