Chocolate Slab with Macadamia and Almonds
It’s child’s play to make healthy, fat fueled treats that’ll satisfy the expectations of all chocolate lovers. Chop, melt, mix, spread and cool. Job done. Everyone's happy.
Servings: 24 squares
- 100 grams dark chocolate, 85 % minimum cacao
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 80 grams macadamia nuts coarsely chopped
- 80 grams almonds slivered, or coarsely chopped
- 2 tbsp shredded coconut
Melt the dark chocolate, oil and maple syrup: pour 1 cm of water into a small saucepan, then place a ceramic or metal bowl on top. Break the chocolate into pieces and place them into the bowl with the coconut oil and maple syrup. Bring the water to a simmer and stir until everything is melted and smooth. Make sure no moisture enters the bowl.
Put the macadamia nuts and sliced almonds into a medium-sized bowl. Pour over the melted chocolate. Mix thoroughly until the nuts and coconut are well coated.
Line a tray with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Spoon the mixture into the tray and spread it out to 1.5 cm (1/2inch) thick with a rubber spatula. It’s not necessary to reach the edges of the tray.
Sprinkle the ground coconut over the top.
Refrigerate. When the chocolate is hard, slice it into squares with a chef’s knife.
