Directions

Click:

  1. Place a layer of baking paper on the bottom of two 5 x 7 inch (13 x 19 cm) baking dishes.
  2. Roughly chop half of the chocolate and place in a clean and dry glass bowl. Be sure no water droplets come in contact with the chocolate.
  3. Melt the chocolate by placing it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Then remove it from the microwave, stir, and then repeat at 15-second intervals. Do this until the chocolate has just completely melted. Note, the heat from the sides of the bowl is enough to continue melting the chocolate. Be cautious not to overheat, as this can burn or “scorch” the chocolate.
  4. Divide the melted chocolate between the two prepared dishes, and use the back of a clean, dry spoon or rubber spatula to evenly distribute the chocolate into a thin layer.
  5. Equally distribute the roasted almonds, dried cranberries, and pumpkin seeds on top of the chocolate layer. Place in the fridge or freezer to slightly harden.
  6. Meanwhile, chop and melt the remaining half of the chocolate.
  7. Remove the baking dish from the freezer and drizzle this chocolate evenly over top. In this way, we are "sandwiching" the almonds and dried cranberries in the middle of two layers of chocolate. Using the back of a spoon or rubber spatula, gently distribute the chocolate evenly.
  8. Sprinkle the top with roasted coconut flakes, goji berries, and the remaining pumpkin seeds. Place in the fridge or freezer for another 10 - 20 minutes to harden.
  9. Remove from the freezer, cut into pieces, and enjoy!

This recipe is definitely going to become a go-to for me! I used pistachios in place of pumpkin seeds and it turned out wonderful.

I tried this recipe. It was so quick to make. Tasted so heavenly !! I was first thinking about eyeballing the quantity of nuts and seeds but good that I followed the exact proportion because it was perfect.
Thank you for this.
