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:
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!
Mix and match to make each one look different.
They’re the perfect size when you want a hit of sweetness.
Make some now! 🙂
2-ingredient mini dark chocolate discs
Adapted from: Undressed Skeleton
Prep time: 5 mins, plus setting
125 g dark chocolate
a handful of your favourite dried fruits and nuts
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.

For all the times that you can’t have these mini discs, I’d love to use Food Panda and order ice cream from Giani’s.
stumbled upon your blog and found such a huge list of cakes, desserts… i must agree you do have a sweet tooth…
restaurant famous for Rayalamseema recipes. Rayalaseema is a region in AP, famous for its hot and spicy chicken and mutton items.
The restaurant serves many traditional recipes out of which natu kodi pulusu is just yummy… finger licking
love the chicken biryani; the long grained basmati rice, the extra ordinarily marinated chicken with mouth watering masalas; the vegetable lukmi, barwaan baigan and rumaali roti; yes, that is a stomach full lunch
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!
Pind Baluchi in New. Delhi
In, meant in, auto correct arrrghhhhh
Bercos is Connaught Place
I know that post-lunch sugar craving so well! Food Panda… I’d order from Mamagoto of course.
I would live to order from ‘Buckets and Tuckets’ at Thane West. Last weekend I had had Teekha Paneer at their outlet and it was really yum.
I simply love FoodPanda. I tried it last week to order Pizza for my little sis!
So, this time I’d like to order Chinese from Chow Maun. Here’s the link!
