Dark Chocolate Superfood Bark

Rich dark chocolate, salted and sprinkled with delicious and colorful superfoods:  This creamy, dreamy chocolate amazingness is the perfect treat for any holiday party or gift. 

INGREDIENTS:  dairy, soy, and gluten free, vegan

  • 2 jumbo Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 15 ounces dark chocolate (70-72%), chopped
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1-2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • sprinkling sea salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In saucepan over medium heat, combine dates and water, stirring into a paste. Reduce heat to low, add chocolate, stirring until melted and fully combined with date paste. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Pour onto parchment; using an baking spatula, spread in an even layer to desired thickness (this recipe is about 1/8 inch). Sprinkle with sea salt. Add toppings: almonds, goji berries and hemp seeds, so each piece of bark is covered. Allow to cool, break or cut into pieces.

I leave the bark overnight on the counter.  It will set, but still be slightly soft.   Cut into various shapes with a knife, then transfer to refrigerator to set completely.
