Roasted almonds and raisins chocolate treats

I decided to make these little chocolate treats for easter, as I am still trying to make healthier food choices. Now they are not healthy in them selves, but they are maybe just a bit more healthy than most of the chocolate easter treats you find in the supermarkets.

200g dark dairy free chocolate of choice
25g coconut oil
2 tablespoons of sweet freedom or agave
pinch of salt
100g almonds
100g raisins

lightly roast the almonds in the oven for about 5-8 minutes, until they get a more golden colour inside the almond when cutting it in half. Set aside to cool, then chop roughly.

Melt chocolate, coconut oil, sweet freedom or agave, and salt on a low heat while stirring. Once all melted and incorporated, turn the almonds and raisins into the chocolate mixture.

Spread into a small dish or baking pan lined with baking paper. Refrigerate for a few hours or over night, then cut into bite size pieces.

Keep refrigerated until serving.
