These Chocolate Buttons are a perfect no-bake, no-fuss healthy treat. They can be made in minutes, then put aside to set in the fridge or freezer. No stress here, just a colourful treat to share over the holiday season.
200g 70% dark chocolate (organic), or your preferred % of chocolate
pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
shredded coconut (organic)
optional sea salt
or any other toppings you like
Line two baking trays with baking paper and set aside. Arrange your selection of toppings.
Break up the chocolate into evenly sized pieces. Place into the top of a double saucepan or a small bowl placed on top of a saucepan with 3cm of gently simmering water (don’t allow any water to come in contact with the chocolate). Stir continually until the chocolate melts, then remove from the heat.
Pour 1 – 1 1/2 teaspoons of chocolate into circles onto the first lined tray, leaving space between each. Top with an assortment of nuts, seeds, goji berries and coconut or your choice of toppings while the chocolate is still wet. Optional, sprinkle each with a few grains of coarse sea salt.
Repeat with the second tray and place in the fridge or freezer to set.
Place the set chocolate buttons into an airtight container and keep stored in the fridge.
Serve directly from the fridge.
