Here’s a cute idea – actually my answer to the baskets I’ve seen on Pinterest made from noodles, marshmallow, and chocolate. They are pretty easy to make and are something the kids can help you with too.
Why are they nourishing?
By making your own chocolate, you have control over the amount (and type) of sugar you add and guarantee avoiding added nasties. The nuts and coconut increase the nourishment and really fill you up so you are less likely to overindulge.
300g slivered almonds, toasted
200 gram (2 cups) shredded coconut, toasted
100 gram (1 cup) almond or hazelnut meal
200 gram (1 cup) raw cacao butter or raw, extra virgin coconut oil (or a combination of 100 gram of each), melted
30 grams (⅓ cup) cacao powder
2-6 tablespoons of sweetener such as maple, coconut or rice malt syrup (you can adjust the sweetness to your taste)
Replace the almonds with more shredded coconut or toasted sunflower seeds and the meal with desiccated coconut.
Choose rice malt syrup as your sweetener
You can sub the raw chocolate with a good quality dark chocolate (I love Green and Blacks) melted. You can omit the almond meal if using regular chocolate.
