Chocolate Energy Bites – 101 Cookbooks

A dark chocolate energy bite always delights. They can punctuate any afternoon as a snack, travel well on road trips, and make a thoughtful homemade gift for any chocolate lovers in your life.

Chocolate Energy Bites: The Concept

These are homemade squares of good-quality dark chocolate crammed with as much good stuff as it can hold. I love to pack the little bars with all manner of chopped nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. Sprinkle them with things like bee or fennel pollen, crushed rose petals, sea salt, and more nuts and seeds to give them a bit of nutritional boost, and to bump up the pretty.

After you make a batch, wrap them in gold foil candy paper, or parchment, and place in a drawer. You’re set for the month. For this round of bites, I used a mix of almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, and dried nectarines. But, as you can imagine, the recipe is very flexible – dates, raisins, dried blueberries or cherries, all make good substitutions. Use great quality dark chocolate – 70% or higher if possible.
