The holidays are fast approaching and many of us are looking for easy, healthy treats for guests or to give as gifts. Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites partnered with L.A.-area, sister chefs, Jenny Engel and Heather Goldberg, of SporkFoods to create these Pistachio Chewy Chocolate Bites. They’re so pretty, you may want to serve them as a dessert at your next holiday soiree.
The recipe uses Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites, crunchy, chewy granola bites that we previously reviewed on realfoodtraveler.com. These healthy snacks are vegan, heart-healthy, 100% all natural, gluten and dairy free. They’re also low in sodium and are GMO free. They feature pistachios, cranberries and agave nectar and we found them quite tasty.

Yields 6 bars
1 package Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites (6 pieces)
¼ cup almond milk
½ cup non-dairy dark chocolate chips
Dash sea salt
1 tablespoon dried cranberries
6-8 pistachio kernels, finely chopped
Unwrap all chewy bites and set aside on a plate.
Place chocolate chips in a heat-proof bowl.
In a small pan, bring almond milk to a boil. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit for about 30 seconds to melt chocolate. Add sea salt. Whisk until smooth.
Dip the chewy bites into chocolate mixture using two small forks and transfer them to a baking sheet, lined with wax paper. Top each Pistachio Chewy Bite with a few cranberries and a small sprinkle of the chopped pistachios while still warm. Set aside for about half an hour to firm up on the counter and place in the refrigerator to completely firm up for 2 hours to overnight. Serve right out of the refrigerator.
