Ingredients

  • 4 oz dark chocolate 60% or more
  • unsweetened shaved coconut
  • regular or golden raisins
  • dried cranberries
  • dried goji berries
  • dried apricots chopped
  • dried dates chopped
  • dried banana chopped
  • freeze dried berries
  • freeze dried apples
  • nuts (pecans, pistachios, hazelnuts or almonds)
  • dried edible flowers (rose, lavender, hibiscus)

Instructions

  • Make a double boiler by bringing a medium pot of water to simmer and placing a medium heat-safe bowl on top. Water should not touch the bottom of the bowl. Meanwhile, break or chop chocolate into small pieces. Add chocolate to bowl. Gently stir until melted using a rubber spatula. Remove from heat when fully melted.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spoon about 2 tsp. of chocolate onto the paper, spreading it into a 2 inch round. Continue this step until all the chocolate is used. Top with desired toppings. Any combination can be used.
  • Once topped, transfer to refrigerator to set for 30 min. Remove from refrigerator and medallions are ready to serve. Store in airtight container with parchment between layers. Keep in a cool dry place, or in the refrigerator.

The toppings chosen are nutrient dense, super flavorful. That's essentially what a "superfood" is. however, keep in mind you are not limited to any of the toppings listed. The possibilities are endless. lemon/orange peel, chia seeds, and freeze dried mangoes are also great ideas. I could probably write another paragraph of combos. Let me know some of your suggestions!
