For a tasty after dinner treat , these Dark Chocolate, Cranberry and Almond bites make perfect company with a hot cup of tea. They also make lovely gifts and no one needs to know how easy they were to make….;)
Top tip: Use whatever nuts and seeds you like or have to hand. Another favourite combo is pistachio and sour cherry.
100g good quality 85% chocolate
Handful flaked almonds, lightly toasted
Handful dried cranberries
Pinch sea salt
Break the chocolate into pieces and melt in a bain-marie. Pour onto a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper. Sprinkle the almonds, cranberries and salt over the chocolate and place in the fridge. When solid, break into bite sized pieces and enjoy!
Small amounts of good dark chocolate qualify as health food, providing antioxidants and minerals like magnesium. Go for the best quality you can find and savour, slowly!
