Salted Pistachio Dark Chocolate Shamrocks (V)

Whenever I need a little pick me up, dark chocolate is my go-to. I just love how well it pairs with different flavors. From fruits and nuts to savories and especially wine, it’s certainly a rich and luxurious treat, and most importantly for me it’s dairy free! Now with St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching I’m elevating this go-to of mine a to give it some holiday appeal. Using shamrocks for good luck, a hint of sea salt and pistachio green and a dusting of edible gold glitter, this sweet treat is now suitable for the upcoming arrival of St. Patty’s Day.

Instructions

Heat 7 of the 8 oz chocolate in a double boiler or on 30 second intervals in the microwave until fully melted.

Pour melted chocolate into your ziplock or piping bag and pipe into your shamrock mold cavities.

Gently tap the mold on a solid surface until chocolate is evenly distributed.

Allow to chill for 1-2 hours in the fridge until completely solid.

While chocolate is chilling, mix together the sea salt and chopped pistachios.

Once shamrocks are fully chilled, heat remaining 1 oz of chocolate until fully melted and pour into remaining ziplock or existing piping bag.

Flip the shamrocks over onto a sheet of parchment paper to remove chocolates.

Turn them right side up and quickly pipe remaining chocolate in a zig zag motion over top the shamrocks.

Top with chopped pistachios and sea salt, and finish with the edible gold glitter.

Place them back in the fridge for 30 minutes to fully harden.
