My Chocolate Superfood Bites

Notes: These chocolates are really easy to make but you do have to be mindful of the time that they are in the freezer when waiting to top them as they can harden really fast. If you, for some reason, forget about them then I suggest melting a little dark chocolate and putting a dollop on top of each cup before topping with your berries etc. and placing back in the freezer. I did have to do this one time and it worked perfectly.

Now I have also given you a list of superfood mixes to add to your chocolate. I suggest starting off small and then building up the amounts and variations as you adjust to the taste. Some superfoods are really bitter, but the chocolate will curb a lot of it so you shouldn’t even taste them unless you put more than I have suggested.  

A little peppermint goes a long way so only use a tiny amount and once again see how much you like once you’ve tried the chocolate. I personally really like the peppermint in mine but Matts not such a fan.

 

Ingredients:

Chocolate Base:

½ cup of coconut oil (melted)

¾ cup of cacao powder

2 tbsp of maple syrup or date syrup

½ tsp of vanilla extract (optional)

a few drops of peppermint extract (optional)

Superfood Mixes:

1 tsp of Maca powder

1 tsp of Ashwangadha

1 tsp Four Sigma mushroom powder

Superfood Toppings:

Goji Berries

Mulberry Berries

Bee Pollen

Hemp Seeds

Cacao Nibs

Desiccated Coconut

Dried Blueberries or Cherries

Method:

In a saucepan add your coconut oil, cacao powder, maple and vanilla and gently heat until the coconut oil has melted. With a whisk combine everything until smooth and until all lumps are out of the cacao powder.

If you are adding in some extra superfoods or peppermint do so now otherwise it’s time to pour your chocolate into its cups.

Pull out your mini muffin tray and line with mini muffin cups. Next pour or gently scoop the chocolate mix into each muffin cup and place in the freezer for 10 minutes. While they harden gather your superfood toppings.

After 10 minutes check the cups to see if they’ve hardened enough that you can top them with berries and seeds or else place back in the freezer for another 5-10 minutes. Check regularly to make sure they don’t completely harden.

When they are just starting to harden on top you can pull them out and quickly top with your superfood toppings before placing back in the freezer for 5 minutes. They are ready when all the chocolate is hard.

Simply pop out of their muffin cups and place in an airtight container in the fridge.
