DIY vegan raspberry quinoa chocolate bark

Chocolate is a serious subject in my home. So serious, in fact, that we always have it on hand.  Over the last decade of marriage, I have discovered that it is the way to Mr. Hobbies So Fancy’s heart.  He will find unique artisan chocolate bars in his stocking every Christmas and sometimes in his suitcase when he arrives to his work destination. As much as I love shopping and scouring the internet for interesting chocolate bars, I love creating my own combinations even more. My vegan raspberry quinoa bark was my latest creation. Not only do the colors look so striking, but the light crunch and the divine combination of raspberries and chocolate separate this bark from all the rest.

 

 

Simple Ingredientsvegan raspberry quinoa bark

Chocolate~ you decide what kind to buy and where. We like fair-trade, dark and vegan.

Freeze Dried Raspberries~I prefer freeze dried, because there is no moisture that might ruin the chocolate’s texture or shelf stability. They lend a nice crunch as well.

Puffed Quinoa~ adds protein and a delicious crunch.

maca powder (optional)~ adds a nice touch of caramel flavor and extra antioxidants.

Sea Salt Flakes~ BecauseMmmmm!!!
