Those who know me, know I absolutely love chocolate! Chocolate with orange flavour, chocolate with salt, chocolate with caramel, hot chocolate, chocolate raisins, you name it.
Chocolate with nuts is no exception, and one of my favourite combinations is chocolate with peanuts!
Before going on a low-carb diet me and my husband would buy those M&M type chocolates and eat them when we were watching a movie on date night.
Now that we’re on a low-carb diet, shop bought chocolates are out of the equation.
But I have found a diet-friendly substitute: chocolate peanut bark (in our case it is low-carb because it’s sweetened with erythritol, but you can use regular sugar if you’re not on a low-carb eating plan).
This recipe is so easy to make, it’s ridiculous.
- 150 grams dark chocolate (I used 85% cocoa solids)
- One tablespoon of coconut oil
- One tablespoon of sweetener of choice (I used erythritol)
- 50 grams of peanuts
Place the coconut oil in a pan on very low heat and let it melt. Meanwhile, chop up the chocolate, and then add it to the pan.
Stir occasionally until melted.
Add the sweetener and stir for a couple of minutes so the sweetener dissolves in the heat.
Then pour the chocolate mixture into a lined dish and sprinkle the peanuts on top.
Alternatively, you can add the peanuts into the pan and mix them up with the chocolate before pouring the mixture into the dish.
Refrigerate for around an hour until set. Then break it up into pieces and enjoy! 🙂
