Frozen chocolate-caramel bites
- Preparation time:
- Total time:
There's definitely room for chocolate with Food Optimizing, and these easy, frozen chocolate-caramel bites are solid gold!
1½oz milk chocolate, broken into pieces
1 (5.3oz) container salted caramel Greek nonfat yogurt, such as Dannon Light & Fit or Oikos Triple Zero
2 level tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Edible gold glitter, to decorate (optional)
- Melt the chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl at medium power for about 1 minute and 15 seconds, stopping at 30-second intervals to stir the chocolate, just until it’s melted and smooth. Or put the chocolate into a small heatproof bowl and set it over (not in) a pan of gently simmering water. Let it sit, stirring often, for 1–2 minutes, until nearly melted. Remove from the heat, stir until smooth and let cool 1 minute.
- Quickly mix in 1 tbsp of the yogurt to loosen the chocolate, then stir in the add remainder, until blended. Sift in 1 level tsp cocoa powder and mix well.
- Divide the mixture among a standard 14-hole ice-cube tray, using about 2 level tsp per cube. Sharply tap the tray on the counter to level the cubes. Freeze for 2 ½–3 hours, or until hard-set.
- When ready to serve, turn chocolates out onto a plate, using a knife to loosen them. Then arrange on a serving dish. Sprinkle chocolates with the remaining 1 tsp cocoa powder, and then decorate with gold glitter if using. Serve immediately.
