Chocolate Bark Hearts

Chocolate Bark with Benefits

This recipe couldn’t be easier, and it’s a fantastic alternative to commercial Valentine’s Day chocolates, which tend to be full of sugar. By raising the cocoa levels, you’ll keep the sugar levels down but increase the nutritional benefit. This recipe also uses dark chocolate – a well-known aphrodisiac.

Ingredients
200g dark chocolate (70% or higher)
20g chopped pistachios
20g flaked almonds
10g chopped candied orange peel
Oil to grease your heart shaped cookie cutter

Method
1 Start by lining a baking sheet with greaseproof baking paper, and melt your chocolate slowly in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
2 Using a heart shaped cookie cutter lightly oil the inner edge to ensure your chocolate doesn’t stick.
3 Place your cutter over the baking paper, and pour your melted chocolate into the cookie cutter.
4 Sprinkle your pistachios, almonds and orange peel onto the chocolate, and leave in the fridge to cool.
5 Once cooked, simply remove the cutter, and you’re finished!
