Low in carbs and high in antioxidants, these little treats are a favorite in my household. They are the perfect answer for a sweet tooth without sending blood glucose levels sky high. Each drop has about 8 carbs.
- 1 cup Dark chocolate chips (I use Giradelli 60% cacao chips)
- 1/4 cup whole almonds
- 1/4 cup dried fruit (I use a mix of dried apricots, craisins, and raisins)
- 1/4 cup shelled pumpkin seeds
Heat chips in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and return to microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat until chips are melted, stirring after each heating. Drop onto parchment or waxed paper with a spoon. Let set for 5 minutes. Arrange fruit, seeds, and nuts on each chocolate drop. Let set for another hour, or place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
