Easter Candy with Goji Berries and Chia!

Happy Easter! Here's a great chocolate candy recipe that literally takes all of ten minutes. If you have kids, this recipe is very kid friendly. My two year old handles all of the mixing and pouring.

I've added some superfoods to make this recipe a healthy candy alternative (relatively speaking).

Here's what you'll need:

1 cup of high quality dark chocolate (chips are the easiest to melt)

1 rounded teaspoon of coconut oil

1 tablespoon ground goji berries

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon sea salt


Here's what to do:

Once blended, spoon teaspoons of your chocolate into an ice cube tray. I fill each cube about halfway.


Freeze the chocolate for about ten minutes until firm and - ta da!


Now remember, Easter does not have to be your only excuse to enjoy chocolate! Dark chocolate (especially in this small amount), goji berries and chia seeds are good for you. Go on, have a piece daily and share one with someone you love :)
