You want to swim in that don’t you?
I’m not kidding you, this was the EASIEST and most AMAZING chocolatey sweet treat, ever! Oh, and it’s healthy annnnnd there’s no baking required.
You sold yet?
I heart pistachios.
Thankfully, this little green nut is full of antioxidants, fiber, and also good for your heart. More nutritional information, here.
Sprinkle these healthy guys [& a little sea salt] over the melted dark chocolate and you’ve got yourself one healthy treat!
Chocolate + sweet + salty. Holy heaven.
Now, if you’re willing to part with this, these also make great gifts. . . OR just double the batch, half for you, half for them. That works too.
When I first made this, I halved the batch – big mistake, I know, and my husband and I ate it ALL. Shocker, had to make it again for a hostess gift.
ps. The first batch I left off the cranberries and it was still delicious.
