Clean Living Organic Chocolate Obsession Recipe

Use your favorite combination of nuts to make this quick and easy chocolate nut bark.

3 dozen 1 1/2-inch pieces | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups semisweet, bittersweet or milk chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups assorted nuts, such as hazelnuts, almonds and cashews, plus more for garnish,
  • ½ – ¾ cup goji berries
  • Coconut flakes

Preparation

  • Refrigerate until set, about 20 minutes.
  • Transfer the bark and foil to a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

Tips & Notes

  • Make Ahead Tip: Store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  • Tip: To melt chocolate, microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. Or place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.

Information for Purchasing Your Chocolate

  • Support organic and fair trade chocolate
