Superfood Chocolate Recipe

Easy Superfood Chocolates by Linda Wagner

I was recently inspired by this recipe from A Couple Cooks. A recipe that is delicious and easy to make?! I’m totally in!

I love fresh ingredients, beautiful colors, and healthy nutritious foods; and I like using those wonderful ingredients to create healthy dishes that people will love! While I do love healthy food and showing people how to make healthy food, the idea of spending hours in the kitchen baking, basting, and roasting doesn’t appeal to me. I like fast easy recipes! This one is very fast and very easy!

I added my own healthy twist on this recipe by adding superfoods. Delicious chocolates that taste amazing and are packed with superfood nutrition…now that’s my kind of dessert!

You’ll need:

  • one 16 ounce bag of dark chocolate chips, try to get 60% or more
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries

  • 1/2 cup of fresh pecan pieces
  • 1 Tbs pHresh greens 
  • 1 Tbs CocoCeps (read more about the health benefits of CocoCeps here)

Make a double broiler by filling a large skillet with water over med-high heat. Then, place a smaller skillet on top and add chocolate and superfoods. Use a spatula to stir the mixture until smooth and melted. You can use the back of your spatula to press and smooth out any clumps on the bottom of your pan.

Once your chocolate is fully melted and your superfoods have been incorporated, use a spoon to dollop small circles onto a baking dish lined with parchment paper.

Then place your cranberries, pistachios, and pecans on top and place the tray in the refrigerator until your chocolate has hardened, about 1 hour. That’s it! You’re done!

These superfood chocolates are not only gorgeous but they TASTE REALLY GOOD and they are REALLY GOOD for you! You would never know that there are superfood powders in the chocolate. You can feel good about sharing these treats with your friends and family because it’s almost like giving them a delicious daily multi!

The pHresh greens are king of magical. I’m absolutely in love with them! I am a huge believer in superfoods and supplements but it’s extremely hard to find supplements that are truly great quality and really work.  How do you know that it’s working? You should FEEL the difference. In most cases, if you don’t feel better after taking a supplement for 2-3 weeks, it’s probably not for you and thus a waste of money! pHresh greens is one of the highest quality greens supplements I have come across, and I have come across A LOT! I recommend it to all of my clients and they typically can feel a difference within the first week. They FEEL better because they are getting high quality minerals and nutrients that they just can’t get from eating healthy foods alone. Adding pHresh greens has given my clients and myself more energy, curb cravings, and help support weight loss time and time again. I am huge fan and huge supporter because it actually works!! I’m super picky when it comes to supplements because most of them don’t do anything, you can’t FEEL the difference. pHresh greens is a difference you can feel and that’s why I love it! You can add it to your smoothies and juices or delicious superfood chocolates like these! You can order your pHresh greens here and use LINDA10 to get you 10% off your order! You can get CocoCeps here and use the code WAG472 to get $5-10 off your first order!

Don’t have any superfood powders? Don’t want to buy these superfoods? No worries! Even if you don’t have any superfoods, this still makes a great, healthy recipe that all of your family and friends will enjoy!!

    Hi there Linda 🙂
    To kinda make do with some ingredients already at home can I use Spirulina instead of the other green stuff you got going here and raw cocoa powder instead of the Cococeps?

    • Linda December 20, 2013 at 6:18 pm #

      Yes, of course! Spirulina would be lovely!
      You could also sub goji berries, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, ect. for the toppings if you have them in your pantry 🙂

        Great!
        Thanks Linda…
        I’m pretty sure I like your version of chocolate bark the best!

    • Linda December 18, 2014 at 5:44 pm #

      Hi Cerisa, it’s just like regular chocolate so will keep for a long time in or out of the fridge! Enjoy!! These are my faves!!
