Don't be fooled! These chocolate bites may be small in size, but they are mighty in flavor! They are simple to make, yet look very impressive! Perfect for parties and get-togethers! :) Without further ado, I present my Chocolate Nut Bites!
Step 1: Ingredients
You don't need much for these little bites.
Chocolate (I used semisweet, but you can use what you please)
Oil (to thin out the chocolate a little bit)
And now comes the fun part! :)
You can top these bites with whatever you want! I prefer:
Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds, Pine Nuts, Raisins, Gogi Berries, Cranberries, and Pecans
Step 2: Melting the Chocolate
Melt about 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. I microwaved my chocolate for 1 minute, and then I stirred it with some oil to thin it out, about a teaspoon.
Step 3: Making the Circles of Chocolate
Take a small amount of chocolate from the bowl, about a teaspoon, and pour it onto a sheet of parchment paper. My parchment paper is on a plate, but you can just as well put it on a baking sheet. Spread the chocolate out thin, and then press in your choice of topping before the chocolate hardens. Don't worry! It takes a while for the chocolate to harden, so you can take your time! :-)
Continue to make the bites until you run out of chocolate.
Step 4: Chill and Enjoy!
Place the bites in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes for them to set completely. If you like, you can also let them sit out at room temperature for about an hour. (I put mine in the fridge because I can't wait)
Remember to peel them from the parchment paper CAREFULLY, or they will break. But if they DO break, it gives you another reasont o eat them, lol.
I hope you enjoy the recipe! :-)
