  2. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or on the stove, using a double boiler. Let the chocolate cool off a bit.

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.
