Dark Chocolate Bars with a Blueberry-Tahini Swirl

Dark-Chocolate-Tahini-1

Ingredients

Ingredients for the Jam:

  • 2 cups California Giant Blueberries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Splash of water
  • 1 tbsp maple

Ingredients for the Chocolate:

  • 1 Cup cacao butter  
  • 1 & 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup honey Or maple syrup (I like my chocolate more intense and rich, less sweet, so I use 1/4 cup)
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 2 tbsp tahini

Directions

  1. For the jam, add the blueberries and maple to a saucepan and simmer for 5-10 minutes on medium-low heat.

  2. Mash the fruit as it simmers, but leave a few pieces whole for texture in the jam. Add a splash of water if needed. Allow the mixture to thicken and reduce down.

  3. Now add the chia seeds and mix well. Set aside.
  4. For the chocolate, fill a small saucepan with 1/2 cup of water and place a bowl on top, covering the saucepan.
  5. Once the bowl is hot and the water below is boiling, melt the cacao butter inside the bowl. Once it has melted stir in the cacao powder and maple syrup for a few minute until the chocolate thickens. 
  6. Pour into a lined baking sheet, spread evenly. 
  7. Top with all the blueberry jam and tahini and swirl the two into the chocolate, creating a beautiful/messy design.
  8. Leave it to set in the freezer for 20 minutes or so.
  9. Once set, cut into bars and store in the refrigerator or freezer. Enjoy!
