Divine chocolate! What does it do to us that with just a bit it makes us happy. I’m dark chocolate person, the darker the better. But for this recipe I think 50% cocoa content is enough. If any celiac in your family buy gluten-free chocolate. To make it can’t be easier, melt the chocolate and add the millet, you can also use puffed rice instead. Then keep in the fridge overnight. You don’t need to buy a specific container to make it, I reuse a milk container cut in half.
You will see that not only sugar-packed sweets has Christmas flavours. I hope you enjoy this chocolate bark, it is the healthy alternative and it is done in only 15 minutes.
