My friend Elizabeth (aka Girl Gone Raw) showed me a super-simple raw chocolate bar recipe last Summer during my 6 week introduction to Raw Foods. It’s hard to believe that making chocolate could be so quick, easy, and…oh…good for you! Since then, I’ve used her recipe as a base for so many yummy creations, like almond butter cups, chocolate dipped frozen banana bites, chocolate covered berries, and more.
This week, I was inspired by a gorgeous pinterest pin that I stumbled on, which led me to a recipe from Lisa Thiele on her wonderful With Style and Grace gluten-free lifestyle website for Dark Chocolate with Pistachios and Sea Salt. The recipe quickly got me to thinking about the many variations that could be created using the Girl Gone Raw basic chocolate bar recipe topped with various nuts & dried fruit.
This version happens to use Walnuts & Cranberries, but as you can imagine, could be any combination of nuts & dried fruit. Because of the more liquid nature of the raw chocolate recipe, the nuts & berries won’t quite sit on top as nicely as they do in Lisa’s recipe, but the treat is still absolutely delicious!
