Ingredients

  • 12 ounces Chocolate Chips or High Quality Chopped Chocolate
  • 3/4 cup Hemp Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Dried Cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons Pumpkin Seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Sliced Almonds

Instructions

  • Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30-second increments, stirring after each interval. Don't overcook the chocolate so you don't burn it. The key is to really stir it well after each interval. Conversely, you can also melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl set over a pot of slowly simmering water.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper on a large rimmed baking sheet. Using a rubber spatula spread the melted chocolate into an even later about 1/4-inch thick. The chocolate will not reach the edges of the baking sheet and you don't have create a perfect rectangle either.
  • Sprinkle the hemp seeds, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and sliced almonds on top of the chocolate. Gently press the ingredients into the chocolate, making sure to just barely press it in.
  • Let the chocolate cool and firm up at room temperature for 2 to 4 hours. To quicken the process place the baking sheet on a flat surface in the refridgerator for 15 to 30 minutes.
  • After the chocolate and completely hardened, use your hands to break it apart into as many pieces and you'd like.

Notes

To store: Place the chocolate in an air-tight container for up to 1 week or keep chilled in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
