Hey there. Lacey here with A Sweet Pea Chef. If you love those fancy-pants chocolate bars at the checkout aisle at the grocery store that sell for $4 to $5 a pop, today I’m going to show you how to do it for way cheaper and still get all those delicious flavors. So let’s get started. First, we’re going to start by placing a sheet of parchment paper over a flat baking sheet and then setting it aside. Next, we need to melt our chocolate, which is really easy to do in a bowl over boiling water. To set this up, fill a saucepan with about two to three inches of water, and then bring to a boil. Then, place a large glass mixing bowl on top of the saucepan, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t actually touch the boiling water. Add the dark chocolate chips to the glass bowl, and then stir the chocolate chips as they slowly melt. For the best chocolate, I recommend looking for anything with 70% cacao or higher. That way, you know it’s the least processed, has the least amount of sugar, and has the most health benefits for you. All right, now that the chocolate is melting, we’re looking for a texture to be smooth and pourable.
Once it’s that, go ahead and pour that melted smooth chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet and carefully spread the chocolate around in an even layer that’s about a quarter-inch thick. We’re going to sprinkle with some roughly chopped pistachios and a little bit of coarse sea salt evenly over the chocolate, and then place the entire baking sheet into the freezer for a good 25 to 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to completely freeze. Next, remove the chocolate from the freezer, and then break it into a bunch of uneven pieces, and then enjoy. See how easy it is to make your own healthy, delicious chocolate treat at home? I hope you love this recipe as much as we do.
