Chocolate Bark With Salted Honey Walnuts and Chia Seeds

1 cup walnuts

2 Tablespoons orange blossom honey

½ teaspoon coarse sea salt

10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

1 Tablespoon chia seeds 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Place walnuts in a small bowl.  Drizzle with honey and stir until walnuts are coated.  Sprinkle with sea salt and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes.  Break up any walnut clusters.   
  • *Place ¾ of the chopped chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.  Cook at 50% power in one minute intervals, stirring after each minute, until chocolate is melted.  Add remaining chocolate.  Stir.  Let stand for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until chocolate is melted and smooth.  Stir in chia seeds and pour chocolate into an 8 inch square baking pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle salted walnuts over the top.  When chocolate becomes solid, break up bark into bite size pieces. Store in an airtight container.   

*Chocolate can also be melted in a bowl over a pot of simmering water.  Follow the same method of melting and stirring ¾ of the chocolate. Once melted, remove chocolate from heat and add remaining chocolate.  Stir until completely melted.
