Dark chocolate trail mix coins are easy to make – you need about 10 minutes and they make a great week day snack. Enjoy them at 2:15 with your afternoon tea or eat them up after you read a stressful email. They also are a great snack for road trips and hiking. Okay, let’s get going.

Ingredients

  • 100g of dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup of nut chunks (I used almonds and pecans)
  • handful of cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon of skor pieces

Gather all of your ingredient – time to make some chocolate money, I mean coins.

First, melt your chocolate. While it’s melting get out some parchment paper for you to make your coins on.

Once the chocolate is melted, spoon it out into loonie-sized coins. Then, top with chopped nut pieces, cranberries and skor pieces. I did about 5 at a time, so the chocolate didn’t harden on me.

That’s it. Keep going until all the chocolate is used up. Let them sit for about 1 hour – they will harden faster in the fridge if you’re in a rush. Then, pack up and you’re all set!

We portion them about into packs of 5-6, otherwise we might just eat them all.
