- 3½ oz. dark chocolate with a minimum of 70% cocoa solids
- 4 tbsp butter or coconut oil
- 1 pinch salt
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp licorice powder or ground cinnamon or ground cardamom (green)
- ¼ cup chopped salted peanuts, for decoration
- Melt chocolate and butter or coconut oil in the microwave oven or in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler you can put a glass bowl on top of a pot of steaming water.
- Make sure that the water doesn’t reach the bowl. The chocolate will melt from the heat of the steam.
- Set the melted chocolate aside to cool for a few minute before proceeding with the next step.
- Add all remaining ingredients except the nuts and blend until incorporporated.
- Pour the batter into a small greased baking dish lined with parchment paper (no bigger than 4 x 6 inches).
- Top with finely chopped peanuts or other creative toppings.
- Place in the refrigerator to chill.
- When the batter is set, cut into small squares with a sharp knife.
- Remember, keep these and all treats small—no more than a 1 x 1 inch square. Store in the refrigerator of freezer.
- Almond or hazelnut butter work, too. And try different toppings: toasted (and coarsely chopped) almonds or hazelnuts, roasted sesame seeds with unsweetened coconut flakes, or even tahini. Mmmmm…
