Chocolate and seaweed might seem like a strange combination, but actually the saltiness of the wakame creates a lovely flavour contrast with the sweet chocolate. Wakame also contains iodine which our diets are often deficient in.These snaps are lovely dipped into ice cream or served with tea and coffee. See if your guests can guess the secret ingredient.
Makes 10-14 snaps, prep time 10 min plus 10 min cooling
2 tsp wakame seaweed (I used BioBalance)
100gms good quality dark chocolate
3 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
Finely grind wakame with spice grinder or pestle and mortar.
Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave.
Stir wakame and toasted sesame seeds into the melted chocolate. Using a spatula spread the mixture in a thin layer (2-3mm) on a sheet of baking paper.
Transfer to the fridge for 10 min to set then break into shards.
