These tasty Paleo Snack Bites are bite-sized replicas of my Paleo Snack Bars with some dark chocolate added on! Great for snacking on the go!
3/4 cup toasted coconut
1/2 cup toasted almonds
1/2 cup toasted macadamia nuts
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
1/4 cup toasted pepitas
1/4 cup flax seeds
3/4 cup honey
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 ounces dark or unsweetened chocolate
Toast all the nuts and seeds
Start by toasting all the nuts and seeds if they are not already done. I do all of mine in large batches so I have some on hand when I need them.
Make the honey syrup for the bites
Mix all the nuts and seeds either a metal or glass bowl.
Heat honey and water in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat.
Using a candy thermometer, cook until it reaches 285F or the soft crack stage. This should take 5-10 minutes.
When it reaches the appropriate temperature, pour the honey mixture over the nuts and seeds.
Stir quickly as the mixture will begin to harden.
Pour into a parchment lined 8×8 square pan.
Press down with a greased spatula to evenly spread the mixture about the pan.
Let sit for about an hour.
Dip the Paleo Snack Bites
When ready to dip, cut the nut and honey mixture into 30 squares.
Melt chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler until smooth. Stirring often!
Dip each square halfway in the chocolate and place on a cooling rack to let the excess drip off.
When the chocolate has started to set, I put mine in the refrigerator to speed the process, you can store at room temperature for up to a week.
Mine never last this long though!
