Preparation

  1. Soak nuts in 2 cups of filtered water with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar for a minimum of two hours/up to six hours. Then rinse thoroughly with fresh water. This will increase the digestibility of the nuts and remove any moulds and mycotoxins.
  2. Preheat oven to 360ºF.
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and roast nuts for 10 - 15 minutes until dry and crunchy. Remove and let cool.
  4. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed food processor until you have a fine crumbly dough.
  5. Roll one-tablespoon portions into balls and add your stick. Place in the fridge for a couple of hours until hardened.
  6. Melt chocolate and dip your pop stick until evenly covered. Place stick into a prepared box to allow the chocolate to harden before storing or serving.
