2-ingredient mini dark chocolate discs + giveaways!

At precisely 2pm every afternoon, post my lunch, I’m hit with an unavoidable sugar craving.


Usually there is a way to fix it – I take a quick walk with a friend and pick up a small pudding cup.
Or I remember there’s chocolate in my bag. Or maybe some blessed soul has brought mithai to office.


But on the days when there is nothing sweet around, I’m a little like this:


Grumpy cat


So I’ve always been on the lookout for something healthy + sweet that I can keep by my desk for those pesky sugar cravings.


And you’ll be please to know – I have found it, my sweet peas.


And here they are.

Made with just dark chocolate and an assortment of dried fruit and nuts, they’re the perfect healthy sweet fix.

You can experiment with what you want to put on the discs – I did coconut, almonds, cashews, prunes and raisins.

Once you have the ingredients, all you have to do is happily plonk the dry fruit and nuts over the chocolate. Or you could arrange them with precision and artistry. Just have fun with it!

Adapted from: Undressed Skeleton


Prep time: 5 mins, plus setting
Makes: 12


Ingredients:


125 g dark chocolate
a handful of your favourite dried fruits and nuts


Method:


1. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or in a double boiler. Line a tray with some grease-proof paper.
2. Using a tablespoon, scoop out melted chocolate and create small circles on the paper, flattening gently as you go. Add a mix of dried fruits and nuts over the circles and leave to set in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Remove gently from the paper and eat, or store in a sealed container in the fridge.

  1. Great post, Charis. I think post-lunch sweet craving is common to us all, the only difference is, you always look for healthy options! This recipe is great help. Thanks!

    And of course am joining the competition. I would love to order food from Bercos, the all-time Chinese favourite!
