Y'know when you crave something sweet but not an entire billiongramchocolatebar? Those days? Yeh, well let me give you the answer to that - chocolate blobs! Or well...not blobs as such more like...uhm... Right, lets just say fruit nut chocolate nuggets! There..much better, and so the name of these things came to be!
Delicious bits of sweet, chocolate covered goodness, mmmm...
Fruit Nut Chocolate Nuggets
(Makes about 8 pieces)
50g fruit and dried nut mix
30g dark chocolate, chopped
1 tbsp xylitol or sugar (icing sugar will do!)
1 tbsp coconut oil
40g light cream cheese
- Have the fruit and nuts ready! Ready? Good, here we go!
- Take out a small frying pan and put it over loooow heat, have the coconut oil, sweetener and chopped chocolate and stir until it's all melted, add the cream cheese and stir through.
- Once the mixture is fairly free from lumps, take it off the heat and stir through the nuts and fruit.
- Have a plate with either non-stick baking parchment or tinfoil over it and place 1 teaspoon of the mixture at a time onto the plate, one nugget done! And about 6-7 more to go. Pop in the freezer for about half an hour and keep cool before serving. Eat immediately, as the coconut oil does tend to melt quickly!
Fingerlickin' good - and hopefully you approve too *smiles*
