It’s there to celebrate your successes, pick you up when you’re feeling down and repair your broken heart. And if ever there was a time to indulge in chocolate, it’s Friday 7th July – World Chocolate Day! We know there’s a day for pretty much everything, but this one really matters.
Instead of opting for that familiar Aero (who knew chocolate and air could be a winning combination?) or Dairy Milk (our childhood sweetheart), why not try your hand at these quick and easy chocolaty treats with a nutty twist?
Walnut and Dark Chocolate Trail Mix
We’ve all experienced that mid-afternoon slump. Usually around 3pm when lunch seems like forever ago and dinner feels in the distant future. Rather than reach for the predictable biscuit tin, give this California walnut and dark chocolate trail mix a whirl: it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. Simply break the pretzels, chop the chocolate and mix together with dried cranberries and mild, creamy California walnuts for the perfect energy-boosting snack.
Nutty Chocolatey Fruit Dippers
Chocoholics will love these fresh fruity bites, which taste just as good as they look. The delicious chocolate coating complements the natural sweetness of the fruit, but it’s the crunchy California walnut coating that makes you reach for another one, and another…Just dip your chosen fruit into a delicious mix of melted chocolate and chopped California walnuts, leave to set – then enjoy!
