chocolate christmas pistachio recipes strawberry sweet Dec 03, 2020

Whether it’s for a homemade gift, for your family to enjoy on Christmas day or simply for yourself to snack away during the crazy month that is December - these choccies are a winner and worth giving a go!


Makes approx 20 chocolates

You will need chocolate molds (I used Christmas Tree ones) or see directions to make a slice instead

100g dark chocolate

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

1/3 cup shelled pistachios, roughly chopped

1/3 cup freeze dried strawberries/blueberries, roughly crushed (or cranberries)

1/2 cup puffed grains (I used brown rice puffs)

Heat a small saucepan with some water in it to the boil. Add the chocolate (broken into pieces) and coconut oil in a heat proof bowl and place on top of the saucepan, without the water touching the bowl. Heat until melted.

Add the remaining ingredients to the melted chocolate mix (keeping aside 2 tablespoons of pistachios and the freeze dried strawberries) and stir well. Divide the pistachios and freeze dried strawberries between the molds and then spoon the mixture into each one. Or to make a slice, spoon the mixture into a loaf tin or other small silicon baking dish, spread out and then sprinkle the pistachios and freeze dried strawberries on top. Leave to set in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Keep in the fridge for 1 week (if it lasts that long!).
