These small chocolates pack loads of nutrition with every bite. They contain raw shelled hemp seeds (or hemp hearts), which contain a triple whammy of protein, fiber and heart-friendly fats. Hemp seeds can also help you feel full longer and reduce sugar cravings.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 12

  • 8 oz Baking Chunks Semisweet Chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/3 cup Hemp Seed, Raw Shelled
  • 2 tsp Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds

DIRECTIONS

1 Line cups of a mini-muffin tray with 12 (1¼-inch diameter) candy cup liners (baking cups).
2 Gently melt the chopped chocolate (about 60% cacao) with the vanilla extract and sea salt in a double boiler (or heatproof bowl placed over simmering water).
3 Remove from heat and quickly stir 1/3 cup hemp hearts into the melted chocolate. Spoon the chocolate-hemp mixture into the candy cup liners, about 7/8 full each. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 teaspoons hemp hearts, tapping the tray against the counter a couple times to assure they adhere to the chocolate.
4 Chill in the refrigerator until firm. Store in the refrigerator or at room temperature. Box up as desired for gifting.
