These bite-sized snack bites are filled with nuts and seeds and held together with honey. These are great for those on Paleo or clean eating diets! Gluten free too! Chocolate Dipped Paleo Snack Bites Recipe | Take Two TapasRecently I traveled to Atlanta with the family, you read the post about the fabulous fried chicken I ate, and while we were there we went to one of my favorite stores, Trader Joe’s.  I have to say that before my Paleo challenge I was utterly hooked on their chocolate drops.  If you don’t know what those are let me enlighten you.  They are sunflower seeds, or kernels, that are dipped in chocolate with a candy coating.  Kind of like M&Ms but with sunflower seeds. This got me inspired to make my Chocolate Dipped Paleo Snack Bites.

 

They are so delicious and I love the texture of the crispy coating and the smooth chocolate.  The seed was just a bonus inside that told me that it was healthy!  A serving of these is about a tablespoon which is roughly 37 candy-coated nuggets of love!  Not nearly enough since I would consume the 10 serving container in 2 servings.

I also have a certain way that I eat them. Much like I ate Sno-Caps, when I used to eat them, it allowed me to savor each and every one of them.  I would take a small bite off the end and then eat the candy coating off the seed like a corn cob.

Then, at last, pop the seed in my mouth.  Yes, I ate them one at a time…  Sound ridiculous I know, but don’t tell me that you don’t have a way to eat certain foods like corn on the cob or french fries.

 

You may ask why I went off on this lengthy, and somewhat embarrassing, tangent and what it has to do with Paleo Snack Bites.  Well, at Trader Joe’s this time, I not only found some roasted coconut chips that were amazing but some nut clusters that were covered in chocolate.

That got me thinking that I could make my Paleo Bars in smaller bite-sized nuggets, dip them in dark chocolate, and then enjoy them in smaller quantities.  Sometimes I just need a small bite and not necessarily a whole bar!  Plus the addition of chocolate makes it feel like dessert!

 

I hope you enjoy these yummy, and healthy, snack bites.

Make a batch and keep them on your counter for a wholesome snack.  Your kids will love them too!

    ounces
    dark or unsweetened chocolate

Instructions

  1. Start by toasting all the nuts and seeds if they are not already done.
  2. Mix all the nuts and seeds either a metal or glass bowl.
  3. Heat honey and water in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat.
  4. Using a candy thermometer, cook until it reaches 285F or the soft crack stage.
  5. This should take between 5 -10 minutes.
  6. When it reaches the appropriate temperature, pour honey mixture over the nuts and seeds.
  7. Stir quickly as the mixture will begin to harden.
  8. Pour into a parchment lined 8×8 square pan.
  9. Press down to evenly spread the mixture with a greased spatula.
  10. Let set for about an hour.
  11. When ready to dip, cut the square into 30 squares.
  12. Melt chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler until smooth. Stirring often!
  13. Dip each square half way in the chocolate and place on a cooling rack to let the excess drip off.
  14. When the chocolate has hardened, I put mine in the refrigerator to speed the process, you can store at room temperature for up to a week.
  15. Mine never last this long though!
