Dark Chocolate Almond-Cherry Nuggets

Dark Chocolate Almond-Cherry Nuggets

1.25 oz. (about six 1” squares) dark chocolate at least 73%, the darker the better!

10-12 (about 1.5 tbsp) dried cherries

1 tbsp sliced almonds, can use chopped instead

2 tsp flax seed, milled (can use a chia and flax seed blend)

dash or two of sea salt (optional)

Melt chocolate, either in a sauce pan over medium heat or in microwave on 50% power for about 2-3 minutes.  Add in the remaining ingredients.  Stir until fully combined.  Scoop small half-spoon fulls and place on plate or in a container lined with wax paper.  Put in refrigerator for about 20 minutes or until hardened.  Makes about 5 nuggets.

They can be stored at room temperature or in frig. (I kept mine in frig.)
