I am pretty excited about these chocolates. Dark choclate, orange peel, and pistachios blend to create a unique, decadent candy. The salt cystrals balence the bitterness of the dark chocolate and the orange peel. It's the perfect, paleo salty-sweet treat. Yipeee!
I think the hardest thing about the paleo diet is that right after dinner I want something sweet. So, rather than eating raw honey out of the jar, I made a batch of these and kept them in the fridge all week. Just one hits the spot.
Now, if you are insane, paleo nazi you'll have to abstain... I used 60% cacao dark chocolate chips, but there is some cane sugar in those chocolate chips. But, if you are an 80/20 person, these are a healthy, simple treat with a trace of sugar in them.
The best part... Well, the best part is eating them. The second best part is that these puppies only call for 4 ingredients and only take about 20 minutes (total) to make. A easy, impressive treat to stash or share! Happy Friday!
