Ingredients:

  • 180g stevia-sweetened dark chocolate, broken into squares.   (I use “Well Naturally” brand available from most Coles and Woolworths stores in the health food section – the Orange flavour is my favourite,  but mint chip, cherry and plain will all work well here.)
  • 40g virgin coconut oil
  • 35g unsalted almonds, roughly chopped
  • 20g unsalted pistachios (hazelnuts are an excellent alternative!)
  • 15g shredded coconut
  • 20g craisins (or raisins/sultanas)
  • 30g dried pitted cherries (or dried blueberries)

*PLUS Chocolate Moulds – This quantity was enough for me to make two 10cm x 6cm x 5cm bunnies plus 6 small half eggs

 

 Method:

  • In the top of a double boiler, melt your chocolate.  (Or,  if you have a Thermomix place the chocolate pieces into mixing bowl and grate 10sec/speed8.  Scrape sides of bowl, add coconut oil and melt 2-3 mins/50C/speed 3)
  • Once melted, pour a little in each mould to just cover the surfaces for a nice outer appearance.
  • To the rest of your mixture add the remaining ingredients and blend gently until just combined.
  • Once blended pour into moulds and set!  It’s a good idea to bang them down on the bench top a few times before they go into the fridge to ensure the melted chocolate has evenly covered the surface of the mould.
  • Refrigerate for at least an hour or until set firmly.
  • Pop out of moulds, wrap in cellophane and give … Or grab a knife and get stuck in to it!  YUM!!!
