You open up a box of chocolates and choose carefully. Maple cream? Nah. Cherry cordial. Ugh, no. Chocolate-covered caramel? Yes, please! You can indulge in one of these for 95 calories, or make your own using four basic ingredients, for only 60 calories.
No candy thermometer needed! These babies couldn’t be easier to whip up. Just place sunflower seeds, dates, and sea salt in a food processor. Press into a pan and freeze.
Cut into squares, smother with melted chocolate, sprinkle on some sea salt (I used pink Himalayan), and pop them back in the fridge. Now there’s a sweet treat you can feel good indulging in.
These are nut free, gluten free, dairy free, and absolutely delicious — they taste just like the real thing! Give them as a homemade gift, bring them to your next pot luck, or just keep a batch in the fridge when sweet, chocolaty, chewy caramel cravings strike.
1 1/2 cups unsalted roasted sunflower seeds
2 cups medjool dates (16), pitted
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
3/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli minichips)
Sea salt for topping (optional)
