Low Carb Chilli Nut Chocolate

Sorry I have been so quiet.

I posted this the other day and thought you guys might like this as well for Easter, it is very yummy. This is a low carb version of a Jamie Oliver recipe, you can read about what I changed here: Low Carb Chilli Nut Chocolate

Low Carb Chilli Nut Chocolate

300g (10.6 oz) Lindt 85%, broken into smallish pieces
300g (10.6 oz) raw mixed nuts (I chose almonds, hazelnut(remove skins after roasting), pecan and pistachio)
1 Heaped TBL sunflower or pumpkin seeds
A little sweetener to taste (I use a mix of erythritol and stevia)
pinch of salt
1/2 red chilli, seeds removed and finely diced

Melt lindt over hot water, stir in sweetener and salt.

Roast nuts and seeds in oven, just before ready add the chilli. Jamie says to add the chilli at the start but it roasts too quickly and burns.

Chop nuts, add about 2/3 of the nut, seed and chilli mixture into the chocolate and pour into a corningware type baking dish or a tray lined with baking paper (not quite roasting tray length), sprinkle remaining nut mixture over the top and press lightly. Set in fridge. Once set, stab gently with a sharp knife to form a bunch of jagged bite size peices.

Very yum, we all love it. I used one of my own chillis this time and it was quite hot compared to when I use the long red chillis from the supermarket or fruit and veg.

It is a little similar to the Low Carb Chocolate and Hazelnut Higgedly Piggedlys without a base.

Enjoy! :)

Hey Niki and Birgitta :)

It's very moorish, I am about to make up another batch. If you use hazelnuts roast them separately and rub the skins off as the hazelnuts are much better without the skins :)
