“High cocoa content chocolate is rich in magnesium among other minerals. Magnesium helps with relaxation, sleep hormone balance as well as increased energy levels.”

So it’s a win win.  I know what I’m doing this weekend.

Salted Chocolate Nut Brittle recipe


  • 150g 70% best-quality dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 30g shelled pistachios
  • 20g walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Line a medium baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the broken-up dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set it over a saucepan of simmering water (making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water).
  3. Stir from time to time, until the chocolate has completely melted.
  4. Pour the melted chocolate into the prepared baking tray and spread it out to a thin, even layer.
  5. Scatter the pistachios, walnuts and sea salt all over.
  6. Place the baking tray in the fridge and leave the nutty chocolate to set hard (about 30 minutes).
  7. Remove it from the fridge and break it into bite-sized pieces.

Keep these ready-to-go treats in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
