I don't write much about desserts on this blog because we rarely eat dessert. But this is a tasty snack for after a healthy meal or to get you through the afternoon. It's inspired by the Bon Appetit Food Lovers Cleanse.
This is all you need for this easy, tasty treat:
100 grams dark chocolate
1/3 cup pepitas (raw, shelled pumpkin seeds)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1/4 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
First break up the chocolate in a bowl, then put it in the microwave for 1 minute.
It should be partially melted. Stir and microwave again for 30 seconds, stirring and repeating until chocolate is fully melted.
Meanwhile, take your pepitas...
and toast them in a dry pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until fragrant.
Then add the sesame seeds and toast for a minute more.
Once chocolate is melted and smooth...
Pour onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Spread the chocolate into a thin, smooth layer.
Sprinkle with the seeds and then with the salt.
Let stand at room temperature for about 2 hours until set.
Then break into pieces and store in the fridge. This makes a great snack. The dark chocolate and seeds are a nice combination and much healthier than a handful of M&Ms or a muffin. Enjoy!
